    Overview

    Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is a rubber adhesive with instant adhesion that sticks easily and allows fast application. Idea for good holding power that resists lifting or curling that helps reduce rework. Superior adhesive transfer resistance with clean removal. Smooth mini-crepe backing results in excellent surface contact with very secure holding. Provides excellent conformability and easy handling that reduces time involved in application. The backing is solvent and moisture resistant that helps reduce bleed-through. The backing has good dead stretch for minimal recovery. Ideal for easy to tear backing aids in handling, yet strong enough to resist slivering giving one piece removal. Special backsize treatment gives a balanced unwind. Paint flake resistance that reduces rework due to contamination, results in a quality paint job. Can be certified for ASTM-D6123/D6123M97. Replaces obsolete PPP-T-42C, Type 1, (CID-A-A-883A).
