As a global leader in professional aircraft painting solutions, 3M supplies a world-class selection of OEM-specified paint masking products and paint application equipment for creating sharp stripes, sweeping curves and other eye-catching designs for distinctive aircraft paint schemes and livery.

The 3M™ Accuspray™ Spray Gun System with Standard PPS™ combines the simplicity and easy maintenance of our Accuspray™ spray guns and with the material-saving, rapid clean-up convenience of PPS™. Replaceable atomizing heads afford the performance of a new gun, on demand and at a fraction of the cost.
For a bright colored tape that stretches where you need it, stays put on rough surfaces, yet removes easily, look to 3M Vinyl Tape 471. Use it for lane and safety marking, temporary surface protection, anodizing and electroplating, color coding, sealing, reinforcing, decorating and more. Faster and less expensive than paint, it comes in a variety of bright colors – all highly abrasion resistant, so it keeps its color in the most trafficked locations.
Thin, stretchable and extremely conformable, 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471+ is excellent for applications requiring sharp, fine paint lines and ideal for aircraft striping and livery. This paint masking tape is formulated to hold stretched positions without allowing bleed-through, and removes cleanly without ghosting, even after 30-minute bake cycles up to 250°F/121°C.
This high-performance polypropylene plastic tape is excellent for creating crisp, sharp paint lines, even when you’re painting long, continuous patterns either straight or in sweeping curves. It is often used as a layout tape for high value multi-color and custom painted graphics.
Featuring our trusted Scotch® and Scotchblok™ brands, our selection of masking paper is excellent for a wide range of aircraft masking applications. Masking papers are designed specifically to prevent fiber contamination and bleed-through of solvents and other coatings in aircraft painting. They are specially treated for resistance to chemicals and bake-cycle heat.
