Why it's Superior?

Our Performance Green Masking Tape 233+ delivers consistently superior performance on moldings, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and paint. Balanced four-part construction includes flexible backing that applies easily around vehicle curves and contours.  Our patented adhesive that sticks at a touch, stays put and removes without transfer for consistently outstanding paint lines.

Auto body professionals will recognize the familiar green color of our Performance Green Masking Tape 233+. The distinctive green paper backing helps improve visibility for more accurate edge alignment. 

It's highly conformable, 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.

As a result of 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.

Our tape also resists temperatures up to 250°F (121°C) for up to 30 minutes, making it suitable for longer baking cycles. This is built into a very low-profile tape which won't leave high edges that require extra buffing or rework.

233+ is also has better UV resistance than traditional masking tapes. Adhesion to steel: 38oz./in.width. Tensile: 25lbs/in.

Probably the best automotive masking tape you can buy.

I was a bit hesitant at buying this tape at first, but about a year ago, I ordered a large box of it from 3M. It's one of the best tapes that I have used thus far. Easy on, easy off. No residue left behind. In fact, I even masked off a few sections of my car and left it in the garage for several weeks in the hottest summer days, and it came off like butter. Not glue residue, no junk left behind. You know it's a quality product the second you start using it. Well worth the few extra bucks.
