About Masking Tapes
Masking Tapes are used to cover areas of surfaces in order to protect them from paint, adhesives, or other substances. They are available in a variety of sizes and colors to suit any project.
Types of Masking Tapes
Masking tapes come in a variety of widths and lengths such as 1/2 inch, 2 inch, 4 inch, 6 inch. They can also be used for different purposes such as painting, electrical work or art projects. Blue masking tapes are designed specifically for outdoor use due to their strong adhesive properties and resistance to weathering.
How Masking Tapes Are Made
Masking tapes are usually made from paper or cloth-backed pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) materials. The PSA is then coated onto the backing material and cured using heat or radiation. The adhesive provides an effective seal that helps keep out dust, dirt and moisture.
Industries That Use Masking Tapes
Masking tapes are widely used by painters, electricians, plumbers and many other professionals who need to cover areas before applying paints or adhesives. They can also be used for labeling products during shipping or storage.
