Auto body professionals will recognize the familiar green color of our Scotch Performance Green Masking Tape 233+. The distinctive green paper backing helps improve visibility for more accurate edge alignment and is highly conformable – it resists breaking even around complex contours of a vehicle, making for fast application and eliminating the need to apply additional tape. But the backing is only one part of our tape design, balanced specifically for superior performance in auto body paint repair and maintenance jobs. The specially formulated adhesive bonds instantly, reducing rework on a variety of surfaces including EPDM. The adhesive resists water and chemicals, making it ideal for use with water or solvent based paint systems with no bleed-through, edge curl or lifting. A primer layer anchors the adhesive to the backing, virtually eliminating transfer to the vehicle surface. The tape removes clean without slivering, which can reduce labor costs.
