3M™ Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape Plus

 3M&#8482 Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape Plus

At 3M our aim is to continuously launch new products and improve others. We were the originators of the soft edge foam masking concept, but we know that all products can be improved on. Following extensive development and testing we have implemented design improvements which have resulted in a new advanced version of the original Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape.

The patented tubular design either expands or compresses to fill the majority of apertures, whilst the offset adhesive bead ensures that the adhesive attachment line can be positioned well away from the paint edge to optimise the soft edge performance. New Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape Plus is also still suited to taping onto styling or swage lines to create a break for blending purposes, and can be applied to either the panel or the moving part.


See our demonstration video.

The Patented tubular design:

  • Fits broadest range of modern aperture widths.
  • Gives improved paint edge.
  • Suits modern close-fit body panels.
