3M(TM) Outdoor Masking and Stucco Tape 5959
3M™ Outdoor Masking and Stucco Tape 5959 is built strong, holds strong, and removes clean, even up to 90 days after application. Its unique, polyethylene backing, laid over a dense cloth scrim, is strong enough to pull through spatter from stucco, Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems (EIFS) and other heavy coatings.
  • Bonds to many surfaces, yet removes cleanly up to 90 days after application
  • Strong backing pulls through spatter from stucco and Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems (EIFS) without tearing
  • High visibility tape is easily identifiable
  • Cloth-reinforcement is strong yet easy to tear from roll

Overview

The adhesive, a special blend of natural and synthetic rubbers, removes cleanly from most opaque surfaces; making it ideal for construction, marine, and other applications such as outdoor masking and stucco projects. Its construction is similar to that of an industrial-strength duct tape, making it useful for sealing, holding, bundling, identifying and protecting while its clean removal stands up to masking in tough coating applications. The smooth, red polyethylene backing is easy to identify and protects underlying surfaces from UV damage and abrasion.

Application Ideas

  •  Ideal for overspray protection when masking substrates from coatings such as stucco, EIFS, gel coat, and construction coatings
  •  Effective in marine applications where temporary tents are made to contain coating that is being removed or to protect coating being applied from dust and debris
  •  The tough polyethylene outer layer and strong scrim backing make one piece removal of the tape possible when pulling through heavy or extra strong coating
  •  Can be used on surfaces such as window and door frames to protect them from damage during construction
  •  Ideal for critical abatement applications where the surface must not be damaged or marred during the removal process
  •  Thick adhesive layer holds well to irregular surfaces such as sealed masonry or brick
  •  Excellent for temporary repairs and holding on the job

Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines and remove easily 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, such as 3M Outdoor Masking and Stucco Tape 5959. A roll of masking tape is basic toolbox or supply room item in any construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, and retail industries.
