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.

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.
