High temperature masking tapes: great results in the drying process

In professional automotive painting, drying the vehicles at high temperature is an essential step of the procedure. Using a masking tape with a great ability to withstand high temperature is therefore fundamental to achieve an optimal result. The adhesive used in regular masking tape is not designed to resist high temperature exposure: as a result, the tape gets off the surface before the paint has dried, causing the paint itself to bleed on the surface to protect.

high temperature masking tape, on the other hand, is engineered with a special adhesive that keeps its hold when exposed at high temperature. The masking tape doesn’t get off before the paint dries, leaving clean surfaces and clean edges at the end of the job.
