Masking Tape & Floor Marking Tapes
Our selection of quality masking tapes includes a type for every need. The 3M Masking Tape range is synonymous with quality and performance and is available here in a wide range of widths. These include the very narrow (3mm wide) fineline tape used for modelling and complex paint jobs. We’ve worked hard to be able to offer these tapes in a full selection of widths so if you are after something that’s not standard, don’t hesitate to let us know as we’ll do our best to help out.
We are also pleased to offer a selection of floor marking tapes. Specifically, our 3M 471 Lane Marking. This is available in a selection of colours with custom sizes also available upon request.
The masking tapes featured above each have their own role to play.
3M 2214 and 3M 2308 Masking Tape are both general-purpose crepe paper tapes, tan in colour with rubber adhesives. They're the most economical and remove cleanly from surfaces.
3M 301+ and 3M 233+ are both higher quality tapes with enhanced adhesion, superior resistance to paint bleeds and remove better after being left for longer.
3M 233+ Fineline is a little different given it is so narrow (3mm wide). It's mainly used for automotive painting though we've also seen it used in model making and artistic work.
Finally, there's our Adhesive Polyimide Tape. It's actually an electrical insulation tape and it's not like the other masking tapes here. It is made from Polyimide film with a silicone adhesive on one side. The reason it appears on this list of masking tapes; temperature resistance.
Adhesive Polyimide Tape will handle temperatures up to 200°C which makes it a good, economical option for masking parts that have to be powder-coated.
We cut this one ourselves, so it's available in a huge range of sizes (widths). Since it's a film tape, it has excellent resistance to paint bleed-through.
If you do have questions about these tapes, please don't hesitate to contact us. We'll help whenever we can.
