On-line paint masking is done to repair color coat or clear coat defects during the painting process on doors and other applications.
Must withstand up to 300° F (148° C) up to 30 minutes, provide complete coverage and leave no adhesive residue upon removal.

Process
Scotch™ Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is pulled off a 3M™ Apron Taper, attached to 3M™ Gross Masking Film 7300, and applied along the inside edge of the window frame in the door to seal the window opening. The masking tape is cleanly removed after paint has been baked in the paint oven.
