- Industrial masking tape used for paint masking applications in specialty vehicle, aerospace, automotive and industrial markets
- Proprietary, solvent-free adhesive formula removes cleanly in one piece with no adhesive residue
- Withstands surface temperatures up to 225°F/107°C for 30 minutes
- Resists paint bleed-through to help create good paint lines
- Sticks with confidence on rubber moldings, plastic, glass, wood, concrete, metal and painted surfaces
- Yellow backing improves visibility and accuracy during paint masking
- Remains in place around corners, over contours and irregular surfaces
We designed 3M™ Performance Yellow Masking Tape 301+ to deliver good paint lines where surface temperatures can reach up to 225°F/107°C. This yellow crepe paper tape is ideal for paint masking applications in specialty vehicle, aerospace, automotive and industrial markets where strong holding performance is required.
Resists paint bleed-through
Ideal for Industrial Painting
Using our proprietary solvent-free adhesive, the tape sticks instantly to most surfaces, including metal, rubber, glass and plastic, as well as EPDM-type rubber moldings while removing cleanly in one piece. Our high-strength crepe-paper backing conforms to irregular surfaces, resists bleed through from most industrial paint systems, improves visibility during the paint masking process, and helps you achieve good paint lines.
3M™ Performance Yellow Masking Tape 301+ is an ideal tape for industrial painting, including two-tone color applications on trucks, buses, trailers, trains, fire trucks, ambulances and airplanes. It is easy to tear, which aids in handling, yet strong enough to resist slivering, providing "user friendly," one piece removal. The tape is conformable for easy masking around corners, over contours and irregular surfaces.
What is Masking Tape?
- Industrial paint masking
- MRO applications
- Woodworking and concrete
- Color coding
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 tapes adhere well, resist solvents or water from the paint, and are strong enough to hang plastic sheeting, yet remove cleanly without damaging the subsurface. The backing, typically crepe paper, can conform to curved and irregular surfaces. The tape hand tears for tool-free application.
A masking tape
(PDF, 28 Mb) 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. Some masking tapes have the tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, including bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing and surface protection. The classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color, but our masking tapes come in a variety of colors and formulations to meet general and specific applications. A roll of masking tape is a basic toolbox or supply room item in construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, automotive aftermarket, e-commerce, general manufacturing and retail industries.
