3M 232 Masking Tape (High Performance)

Tan 3M 232 Masking Tape

3M Scotch Crepe Paper Masking Tape

3M 232 Masking Tape is a Scotch(R) High-Performance Tape that 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.

For a similar tape that offers greater elongation and superior resistance, 3M™ High-Performance Green Masking Tape 401+ is recommended.

3M’s wide variety of Masking Tapes allows you to select from a variety of crepe paper backings, coatings, adhesion strengths, clean removal properties, and temperature range performance. For more information on 3M’s Masking Tapes: 3M Masking Product Catalog.
