3M™ Paper Masking Tape 2209 is a cost-effective crepe paper tape that holds, bundles, seals, and performs other non-critical taping jobs where a pressure sensitive tape is needed. The tape peels smoothly from the roll for easy control and tears easily by hand. It remains in place around corners and over contoured surfaces.
Crepe paper backing provides easy tearing
Provides conformability on irregular surfaces and around corners

The rubber adhesive sticks instantly to paper, metal, wood plastic, glass, painted, and other clean surfaces and resists lifting or curling. Designed to perform best indoors, 3M™ Paper Masking Tape 2209 is a useful addition to every toolbox, job site, and workplace.
Our economical tape fulfills a wide variety of needs around the shop, in the office and throughout the home. It is writable and can provide yards of temporary labels. It can be used to bundle objects together for storage or moving, it can be used to close cartons, boxes, and paper overwrap to protect items within and is easier to remove than packing or other tapes. Other uses include hanging temporary signage and plastic sheeting, lint removal from clothing, lane marking, arts and crafts, and dozens of other creative and practical uses.
Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines, and remove easily and cleanly when finished. The backing, typically crepe paper, sticks when applied to curved and irregular surfaces without lifting or curling. Various masking tapes are designed for different applications and should be removed within their specified time range. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may splinter or shred when coming off the roll or being removed after use.
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. These products hand tear for tool-free application. Some have sufficient tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, making them useful for bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing, and surface protection. The classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color, but 3M masking tapes come in a variety of other colors and formulations to meet general and specific applications. It should be noted that many crepe paper masking tapes perform best for indoor purposes and may be difficult to remove after exposure to sunlight. Many of these tapes also have a shelf life of 12 months, beyond which, peak performance cannot be assured. A roll of masking tape is a basic toolbox or supply room item in any construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, or retail industry.
