Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually, I didn't use it for a paint job (yet) Well, an anticipated paint project did not materialized, so I found another use for this great tape, which was furnished by 3M for a consumer review. It is excellent for COVID directional markings . . . on the walls without worry of paint damage or marring. Does anyone really look at the floor where most arrows are placed? Not really. Further, the way instructions are changing (daily, it seems), this easy-on, easy-off tape is ideal for the times. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Use on Multiple Surface Types I tested this tape on multiple surface types around my home and it performed very well. I used this on painted surfaces--both smooth, semi-gloss painted, and flat painted. I used it with wood, plastic, and cardboard. It held as needed and did not mar surfaces when removed. I find this a versatile tape to use and appreciate the color which is easy to spot in storage situations. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really heavy duty I got this product free from 3M to review. Used this when painting my dining room. Does great to stick to woodwork and did not leave anything behind. It did not let any paint come through. Would use this again for painting projects. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tape! 3M gave me this product to evaluate, and It has been great to puppy proof my house. I know it is not intended for this purpose, but my teething puppy has tried to nibble on some molding corners and chair legs. I put some of this masking tape down and it has really deterred her without taking the paint off of the wood or leaving a sticky residue! Great stuff :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One tape...does it all 3M Scotch Heavy Duty Masking Tape 2020+ is my new go to product. I have used and tested this tape on many different types of projects. My favorite (most rewarding) was creating a chalkboard on my office closet door. I didn’t want something bulky, so I decided to go the route of chalkboard paint instead. I put Scotch Heavy Duty Masking Tape 2020+ to the test as my border to paint inside. I had visions of razor-sharp paint lines for the outside border….and I was not disappointed when peeling off the tape after the paint dried. This tape really sticks where you need it to, repositions with no problems and removes without any issues. No sticky residue either. I love the bright color. It is a real attention getter which brings me to my second project that involved using this tape as an identifier to boxes that contained recently organized items. This tape pulls easily from the roll. I did not experience the dreaded tear in the tape when only a part of it is coming off the roll and the other half remains on the roll. Additionally, one swipe of the hand across the tape and it is was adhered to the box and the ends remained intact without curling up. Scotch Heavy Duty Masking Tape 2020+ is definitely a game changer. There is nothing better than one item that can suit the needs of many projects. The perfect stocking stuffer!!! Thanks 3M for sending me a free sample in return for my honest opinion. I am impressed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My go-to tape from now on! Used this tape on the carpet and also on painted wood to keep paint off when I touched up a couple of places on my walls. The tape came off better than I expected after leaving it on for 3 days. Since it peeled off clean in one strip and didn't shred or rip into smaller bits & pieces, it made my whole job touch-up job easier. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
