Scotch® Fine Line Tape 218 is a high-performance polypropylene plastic tape that has both a low profile and high adhesion for use in painting long straight lines and sweeping curves where a crisp, sharp paint line is desired. It is often used as a layout tape for high value multi-color and custom painted graphics.
Perfect Your Straight Lines and Sweeping Curves
Scotch® Fine Line Tape 218 features a natural rubber pressure adhesive capable of delivering the high instant adhesion necessary for critical, large-scale paint applications. This tape has proven itself to be ideal for painting long, straight lines as well as smooth, sweeping curves. The polypropylene backing is stiffer than vinyl fine line tapes, while conforming easily around corners. Scotch® Fine Line Tape 218 features good moisture and solvent resistance. It resists heat in bake cycles that reach 250°F/121°C for up to 30 minutes.
