Scotch® Solvent Resistant Masking Tape 226 is a black polyethylene film laminated over saturated crepe paper that has excellent resistance against a wide range of damaging chemicals. The polyethylene backing is resistant to many solvents, water solutions and emulsions and paint strippers of the wax-base type and the mild caustic solution solvent-emulsion type.
Scotch® Solvent Resistant Masking Tape 226 has excellent weathering properties up to three months on most surfaces. It is heat resistant up to 225°F (107°C) for 30 minutes bake.
This tape features a natural rubber adhesive with quick stick, good holding power and clean removal. It is designed with controlled stretch and tear to help provide excellent handling and performance.
What is 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. Masking tapes from 3M 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.
