3M™ Perforated Trim Masking Tape features a rigid band along one edge that slips gently behind moldings, lifting them slightly from the body. This tape allows paint to flow beneath the moldings while masking their exteriors for a professional, finished paint job without removing or replacing the moldings or rework for paint lines. Perforations allow you to tear the tape by hand, saving time.

Faster, More Cost-Effective Trim Masking
Designed for collision repair professionals seeking a clean, uniform finished appearance when painting around pliable vehicle moldings, 3M™ Perforated Trim Masking Tape helps deliver a fast, professional paint job, with no sharp paint edges and without the added time and expense of removing, replacing or cleaning existing moldings. It is designed for masking around flush mount windshields and back glass, side moldings, inset door handles and tail light assemblies, as well as sidelight and headlight units. The film backing features perforations which do not weaken the tape during masking, but allow technicians to tear the tape by hand, reducing the hassle of finding and using cutting tools.

A Gentle Lift for a Big Drop in Material and Labor Costs
3M™ Perforated Trim Masking Tape features a hard band along its edge that slips quickly and easily between trim moldings and auto body surfaces. The bands are available in multiple widths for a versatile range of vehicle masking jobs. A strong polymeric film backing stays strong as the molding is lifted, and provides a reliable mask that keeps the molding exterior free of paint spray. A translucent liner on the adhesive side of the tape removes easily in one piece for precise placement.

As technicians spray over the masking, the paint flows into the small gaps between the moldings and the paint surface. When the masking tape is removed, the moldings simply drop back on top of the fresh paint – no visible paint edges, and no need to spend extra time removing paint lines from trim after painting. Best of all, you can mask around trim in very little time without having to remove or replace any of the existing moldings for savings on labor and materials.

Ideas that Make a Difference
Our 3M™ Perforated Trim Masking Tape is another example of how a product that seems common can save an uncommon amount of time and money in automotive aftermarket maintenance and repair. We designed this masking tape specifically for quick, effective masking around auto moldings, and as a solution for creating a professional finished appearance in less time, for less money. It's another example of what 3M does best: Science. Applied to Life.™
