Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is a premium high-performance crepe paper masking tape designed to meet masking needs in most industrial painting situations, including the use of bake cycles. Our smooth masking tape embodies all the features that are desirable in a paint masking tape and designed specifically for the professional painter.

The natural rubber adhesive of our tape sticks instantly and allows fast application along with reliable holding power that resists lifting or curling. Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A demonstrates superior adhesive transfer resistance with clean removal that helps reduce labor and clean up. Its smooth mini-crepe backing results in excellent surface contact and is also solvent and moisture resistant to minimize bleed-through. A special backsize treatment provides a smooth unwind for easy handling and reduced waste. The backing also has excellent dead stretch for minimal recovery. It is easy to tear, which aids in handling, yet strong enough to resist slivering, providing "user friendly," one piece removal. Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is conformable for easy masking around corners, over irregular surfaces, and offers easy handling that reduces application time. As a professional grade masking tape, it has the benefit of paint flake resistance that reduces contamination and potential rework, resulting in a professional paint job. This tape can be qualified for ASTM D-6123 (replaces obsolete PPP-T-42C, Type I, (CID-A-A-883B)).The crepe paper backing tears easily, offers moderate conformability, and lifts off cleanly. The natural rubber adhesive bonds well to paper, metal, wood, and painted surfaces with reliable holding power that resists lifting and curling. Under normal operating conditions the tape features one piece removal and is sliver resistant. Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines, and remove easily and cleanly when finished. The backing, typically crepe paper, sticks when applied to curved and irregular surfaces without lifting or curling. Various masking tapes are designed for different applications and should be removed within their specified time range. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may splinter or shred when coming off the roll or being removed after use. Our masking tapes adhere well, resist solvents or water from the paint, and are strong enough to hang plastic sheeting, yet remove cleanly without damaging the subsurface. These products hand tear for tool-free application. Some have sufficient tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, making them useful for bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing, and surface protection.Classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color, but our masking tapes come in a variety of other colors and formulations to meet general and specific applications. It should be noted that many crepe paper masking tapes perform best for indoor purposes and may be difficult to remove after exposure to sunlight. Many of these tapes also have a shelf life of 12 months, beyond which, peak performance cannot be assured. A roll of masking tape is a basic toolbox or supply room item in any construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, or retail industry.
