3M™ Specialty High Temperature Masking Tape 501+

3M Product Number  501+     
3M(TM) Specialty High Temperature Masking Tape 501+
3M(TM) Specialty High Temperature Masking Tape 501+
3M™ High Temperature Masking Tape 501+ is our premium high performance crepe paper masking tape designed to create super-sharp paint lines in most industrial painting situations, including high-temperature bake cycles of up to 3000 for 30 minutes, and provide clean, one piece removal.
  • Provides instant adhesion to metal and other surfaces and resists lifting or curling for super-sharp paint lines
  • Conforms and maintains integrity when formed around a corner
  • Backing is easy to tear, resists slivering and provides one piece removal
  • Smooth, controlled unwind dispenses evenly and is less likely to tear off roll
  • Tape is heat resistant for high-temperature paint-bake cycles
  • High conformability

Overview

The fifth in our Masking Made Simple line of tapes, this smooth-to-the-touch masking tape embodies all the desirable features of a professional-grade masking tape. Its natural rubber adhesive provides instant adhesion for fast application along with reliable holding power that resists lifting, curling, and edge seepage. It provides clean removal that helps reduce labor, clean up, and produce vivid paint lines. Its smooth backing helps achieve complete surface contact and is also solvent and moisture resistant, which minimizes bleed-through. A special backsize treatment provides a smooth unwind for easy handling, control, and reduced waste. It is easy to tear from the roll, which aids in handling, yet strong enough to resist unwanted tearing when removing after the job is done.

What is Masking Tape?
3M™ High Temperature Masking Tape 501+ is conformable for easy masking around corners, over irregular surfaces, and offers easy handling that reduces application time. This tape can be qualified for ASTM D-6123 (replaces obsolete PPP-T-42C, Type I, (CID-A-A-883B).

Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines, and remove easily and cleanly when finished. Masking tapes from 3M 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.
