  • Has been laboratory tested on painted panels and found to remove cleanly at bake temperatures of up to 250 ºF (121 ºC) for 30 minutes. The actual temperature and time performance may be higher or lower for a given application. Clean removal can vary dependent on surface type, processing conditions (such as multiple bakes), type of paint involved as well as the temperature of the surface at removal. We recommend testing the product under your conditions to determine if it meets your needs.
  • Excellent transfer resistance to "difficult to remove from" surfaces like EDPM rubber moldings.
  • Tests indicate it is better than conventional masking tapes for sunlight resistance, it is still advised that it not be subjected to outdoor exposure or prolonged periods of sunlight as tape may become difficult to remove.
  • Can be qualified for PPP-T-42C, Type I, (CID-A-A-883A).


Application Ideas

  • Excellent paint masking tape.
  • Used throughout industry for holding, protecting, bundling and a vast number of other difficult jobs where a pressure sensitive tape is needed.



N/A Store under normal conditions of 70 ºF (21 ºC) and 50 % R.H. in the original carton.
