Our 3M™ Trim Masking Tape lifts and protects trim moldings during auto body masking, eliminating overspray and visible paint edges. A rigid band along one edge slips gently behind the molding, lifting it slightly from the body. Paint flows under the molding while its exterior stays masked for a professional, finished paint job without removing or replacing the moldings or rework for paint lines.

3M™ Trim Masking Tape
Protects trim moldings during auto body masking

3M™ Trim Masking Tape 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.

Faster, More Cost-Effective Trim Masking
Auto body professionals seeking a clean, uniform finished appearance when painting around pliable vehicle moldings will appreciate our 3M™ Trim Masking Tape. This tape 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. Technicians get a fast, professional paint job, with no sharp paint edges and without the added time and expense of removing, replacing or cleaning existing moldings.

A Gentle Lift for a Big Drop in Material and Labor Costs
3M™ Trim Masking Tape features a hard band along its edge that slips quickly and easily between trim moldings and auto body surfaces. The translucent liner on the adhesive side is removed and the tape is folded over and adhered. This slightly lifts the molding, and provides a reliable mask that prevents overspray.

As technicians spray over the masking, the paint flows into the small gap between the molding and the paint surface and covers beneath the molding itself. When the masking tape is removed, the molding simply drops 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™ 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.™
