Scotch 232 Scotch Masking Tape
Scotch® High Performance Masking Tape 232 produces sharp paint lines in medium temperature paint bake operations and provides clean removal, even on difficult to remove from surfaces. The thick crepe paper backing contains a solvent-resistant saturant that helps resist paint bleed-through against latex and oil-based paints.
  • Rubber adhesive provides instant adhesion and resists lifting or curling for sharp paint lines
  • Crepe paper backing conforms and maintains integrity when formed around a corner
  • Backing is easy to tear, resists slivering, and provides one piece removal
  • Controlled unwind dispenses evenly from the roll and is less likely to tear prematurely
  • Manufactured without solvents for reduced environmental stresses

Our Scotch® High Performance Masking Tape 232 offers moderate conformability for masking around corners and over irregular surfaces. The rubber adhesive sticks instantly, offer strong holding power that resists lifting, curling, and adhesive transfer when removing from surfaces like EDPM rubber moldings. This tape performs well in paint bake operations at temperatures up to 250° F/ 121° C for up to 30 minutes to create sharp, professional paint lines. Tests indicate it is better than conventional masking tapes for sunlight resistance; however it is advised that the tape not be subjected to outdoor exposure or prolonged periods of sunlight as it may become difficult to remove. Our tape delivers superior performance as a paint masking tape and is also useful for holding, protecting, bundling and a vast number of other difficult jobs where a pressure sensitive tape is needed. This durable tape can be certified for ASTM D-6123.

The crepe paper backing tears easily, offers moderate conformability around corners and over irregular surfaces, and lifts off cleanly. The natural rubber adhesive bonds well to paper, metal, drywall, wood, and painted surfaces with reliable holding power and conformability. Under normal operating conditions Scotch® High Performance Masking Tape 232 features one piece removal and is sliver resistant.

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 our 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.
