Scotch® Exterior Surface Painter’s Tape was developed for outdoor painting projects for when you need a tape that can handle wind, rain, humidity and direct sunlight. This innovative poly-tape is different than standard 3M paper painter’s tapes, it conforms to curves, tears straight for fast cornering, and best of all, removes from the surface without tearing or slivering. Use it outdoors on smooth and semi-smooth metal, vinyl, painted wood, and glass‎. Scotch® Exterior Surface Painter’s Tape holds to surfaces for up to 10 days in all kinds of challenging weather and then removes easily without leaving any sticky residue behind.

  • TAPE APPLICATION TIPS: For great paint results make sure the surface is clean, dry and dust-free so that the tape sticks properly. Next, apply the tape onto the surface while pressing down firmly as you go. And lastly, let the tape set for about 30 to 60 minutes before painting.
  • TAPE REMOVAL TIPS: Wait until the paint is dry to the touch before removing the tape. Lift it up by slowly pulling it back on itself, then removing at a 45-degree angle.

Customer Reviews
Scotch® Exterior Surface Painter’s Tape 2097 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not use on drywall I was painting interior trim and this was handy so I used it to mask the painted drywall. The tape has "Exterior" printed on it, so I partially blame myself for using it. But I never expected what happened -- pulling off not just the paint but in some places tearing the top layer of paper off the drywall. Made a complete mess that I now have to patch and repaint. I would ask manufacturer to print "DO NOT USE ON DRYWALL" as extra warning to people like me. I'm sure it deserves more starts when properly used, but I give it one star for not sufficiently warning me of the damage it would do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this tape when I decided to paint my front and back doors. I also used it when I painted the shutters to keep the paint off of the siding. It is very strong, stays in place, and does it's job. It works on almost all surfaces and is easily removed. No tackiness is left behind, just a clean surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect exterior tape [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is by far my favorite tape to use on exteriors. It never gives me any trouble and gives me the coverage and straight lines I need around siding and metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Southwest [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I found when separating colors on stucco, this tape was fantastic. Was abe to apply it to the stucco and the other color didn't bleed through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pulled paint off of a wood surface, twice! When I pulled the tape off a recently(a month old) painted wood facia board it took the paint with it. I thought the first time was a fluke, but when it did it the second time clearly there is a problem. I would not use or recommend this tape I'm throwing out the remaining roll.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STRIPPED OFF MY METAL AROUND MY DOOR I used this tape to tape off the area around my storm door in order to paint a small wood frame. When I removed this tape not even 12 hours after painting, this tape took off my factory baked-on finish around my storm door. Beware this tape is not safe for metal like it states. I am filing a complaint.
