    3M™ Auto Care Masking Tape
    This masking tape has a good balance of conformability and holding power
    Countless Uses for Automotive Repair and Maintenance
    3M™ Automotive Masking Tape is designed for general purpose automotive projects on the interior and exterior of the vehicle. Produced with 3M adhesive technology, this brown crepe-backed auto paint masking tape has medium adhesion and resists lifting and curling on a variety of surfaces including moldings, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and painted surfaces. This tape also removes cleanly from automotive surfaces. Application temperatures of 60 to 90°F are recommended, and the tape is heat resistant up to 250°F for up to 30 minutes. This tape is not recommended for extended outdoor exposure.

    A Versatile Tape with Many Uses
    In addition to automotive masking applications, use our tape for general indoor applications such as light-to-medium duty bundling, wrapping electrical cords and sealing boxes. Write on it to create temporary labels, post signs, or mark boundaries and when the job is done, remove it without unwanted tearing or slivering. This versatile tape unwinds smoothly from the roll for good control and tears easily by hand.

    Benefits of Masking Tape
    Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines and remove easily and cleanly when finished. Our masking tape adheres well, resists solvents or water from the paint and removes cleanly without damaging the surface. The crepe paper backing can conform to curved and irregular surfaces. The tape hand tears for tool-free applications.

    How to Judge a Good Masking Tape
    A masking tape should specify what surfaces it will stick to and the interval over which it will remove cleanly. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may demonstrate splintering or shredding, either coming off the roll or when being removed after use. This classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color for general purpose applications.
