Metal, Coatings, Wall Coverings, Paper and Textiles
What to keep in mind when applying adhesive tape to coatings, wall coverings, paper and textiles.
If you plan to mask coated surfaces, only tapes with low to moderate adhesion should be used. The length of time that the masking tape is left in place should be limited, because subsequent damage is possible (such as removal of coatings, discolouration, adhesive tape residue, etc.)
The level of hold between the coating and the substrate must be greater than the hold between the adhesive tape and the coating. If in doubt, you should do a tape removal test or test adhesion.
