From yachts to trains, trucks, and special vehicles – the tesa® Precision Mask 4342 is designed to meet the requirements of modern paint systems and processes in the shipbuilding industry and in the transportation sector in general. The thin, smooth, and conformable backing of the tesa® Precision Mask 4342 is strong enough to pull through several paint layers and leaves a perfectly sharp paint edge.

Even after longer application times or high-temperature baking at 150°C for 30 minutes, tesa® Precision Mask 4342 can be removed without residues. Its acrylic adhesive offers excellent UV resistance and a high tack – the washi tape adheres reliably even to rougher surfaces.

Due to the convenient unwinding forces needed, tesa® Precision Mask 4342 is finger friendly and very easy to handle. The washi tape can be used with water- or solvent-based paints or lacquers. Outdoors, it is weather resistant for up to three weeks. Indoors, it can stay on for up to two months. Thanks to these characteristics and its high quality, tesa® Precision Mask 4342 is suitable for a broad range of different application conditions and gives you much more flexibility in planning and executing outstanding paint jobs.

Typical applications for tesa® Precision Mask® are

  • Painting coachlines on canal boats
  • Defining antifouling line on yachts and boats
  • Spray paint jobs requiring oven drying up to 150°C
  • Paint jobs requiring razor sharp paint edges over a large distance
