  • Best Practices for 3M Scotch Performance Masking Tape 233+

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Tape is designed for indoor use – exposure to sun and heat may cause tape to become more difficult to remove

      Make sure surfaces are thoroughly clean and dry before applying masking tape

      Some surfaces, such as rubber gaskets and moldings, should be cleaned with a solvent to remove residual release agents from the manufacturing process before applying masking tape.

    2. Application

      For best adhesion, surface temperatures should range from 60°F to 90°F when tape is applied. For easier application and removal, apply long continuous strips of tape in flat, straight areas and break the as needed when going around contours or curves (such as wheel arches). The objective when back masking and over taping is to keep the tape lying flat and rolled back, away from the paint edge in order to produce the cleanest look.

    3. Removal

      For general applications, tape should be removed back over itself at a 45° angle. For removal on delicate surfaces (such as old weathered paint), tape should be removed as close to a 180° angle as possible

      For fine line work, tape should be removed at a 45° angle away from the paint edge, at a slow speed with surface temperatures ranging from 60-90°F. This helps “cut” the paint line for the cleanest edge
