3M™ Value Masking Tape 101+ remains in place around corners and over contoured surfaces. Our 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, this tape comes off the roll smoothly for easy control. And after the job is done, the strong paper backing resists unwanted tearing and slivering when removing, minimizing potential frustration. 101+ is a useful addition to every toolbox, job site, and workplace.
This basic 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. You can use it to bundle objects together for storage or moving, it seals 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, lane marking, arts and crafts, and dozens of other creative and practical uses.
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.
