Q1 is delighted to announce that Paint Tech Training Academy is putting our Q1 masking tapes to the test with a panel of 22 professional sprayers.
Founders of the academy, Ian Crump and Pete Wilkinson, were first to conduct their own field tests but have so far kept their opinions under wraps, ahead of feedback from a further team of 20 professionals.
Honest reviews of our Q1 Multi Purpose Indoor Masking Tape and the popular Q1 Precision Line Masking Tape will be shared across the Academy’s social media platforms leading up to the National Painting and Decorating Show at the end of November.
Ian Crump, Managing Director of the Paint Tech Training Academy and a professional sprayer of 20 years, describes the testing process:
“It’s fair to say that a new product will have to come up trumps on a number of different criteria before it’s added to our arsenal for good. Even then, it will need to perform throughout different seasons and application environments before we would replace a brand that we know and trust.
“We have asked our panel of 20 professional sprayers to test the Q1 tapes across a range of criteria including how tacky it is, how it tears and pulls off the roll and how it sticks to a variety of services. We will release our full findings over the coming weeks.”
Ever proud of the quality and performance of our tapes, the Q1 team is confident that the professional sprayers testing the new products will want to make the switch to our masking products for good. So far, things are looking positive with Paint Tech Training Academy tipped to use Q1 tapes in the Spray Zone at this year’s Paint Show.
The full testing criteria
With 22 sprayers testing our masking tapes across a variety of commercial and domestic jobs, no stone will be left unturned when it comes to revealing the true performance potential of our products. Here’s the full list of testing criteria:
