- Customizable on demand
Masking tape colour:
Black, grey, brown, green, red, cream, transparent, translucent, etc.
Backing and adhesive material:
Generally the nature of the application, the paint or coating system and temperature at which it dries or cures determines the required characteristics of a masking tape, such as the type of paper backing used e.g. creped, flatback or filmic, as well as the adhesive. Rubber adhesives are primarily used, but when temperatures reach above 160°C a silicone adhesive is required.
For some applications of masking tape such as sandblasting, temperature resistance isn’t a prerequisite. In this case a strong, thick backing which is resistant to an abrasive under high pressure is vital; but the masking tapes must also be able to be removed cleanly, without leaving residue or damaging the substrate it is masking.
