We developed 3M™ Masking Tape 2307 for general purpose duties like holding, bundling, sealing, general paint masking and other jobs where a pressure sensitive tape is required. The rubber adhesive sticks instantly to most surfaces and offers good holding power to help resist lifting or curling. The crepe paper backing conforms over irregular surfaces and around corners.
Easily identifiable, general purpose tape for bundling, holding, identifying and general paint masking
Rubber adhesive sticks to most surfaces and removes cleanly in one piece
Ideal for easy tear and sliver resistant, along with good paint hold-out that resists bleed-through
Crepe-paper backing conforms over irregular surfaces, contours, and around corners
Offers controlled unwind - not too easy or too hard
Holding Power and Removal the Way You Want
Ideal for easy tear and sliver resistant, the crepe paper backing of 3M™ Masking Tape 2307 also resists bleed through of most paint systems and is useful for bundling and holding. Using a rubber adhesive, our solvent-free tape sticks to most surfaces including metal, rubber, glass, and plastic and removes cleanly in one piece. Tape 2307 has a temperature use range up to 200ºF (93ºC) for 30 minutes so that sharp paint lines can be created in room temperature or paint-bake operations. This tape is not intended for prolonged outdoor exposure, as it may become very difficult to remove.

Labeling and identifying applications
General paint masking
3M™ Masking Tape 2307 has been tested and found to meet the requirements of ASTM D 6123 / D 6123M-97.
What is Masking Tape?
Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines, and remove easily and cleanly when finished. Our masking tapes adhere well, resist solvents or water from the paint, and are strong enough to hang plastic sheeting, yet remove cleanly without damaging the subsurface. The backing, typically crepe paper, can conform to curved and irregular surfaces. The tape hand tears for tool-free application.
A masking tape should specify what surfaces it will stick to and the interval over which it will remove cleanly. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may demonstrate splintering or shredding, either coming off the roll or when being removed after use. Some masking tapes have the tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, including bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing, and surface protection. The classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color, but our masking tapes come in a variety of colors and formulations to meet general and specific applications. A roll of masking tape is basic toolbox or supply room item in construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, and retail industries.
