Application: Masking

Selecting the proper tape for masking applications requires a detailed understanding of the working environment in which the tape must perform. In a typical painting or powder coating application, factors such as staging time, cure process, temperature range and duration, UV exposure, and paint formulation will influence a masking tape's performance. Application and removal techniques are also important considerations in the tape selection process.
