Automotive masking paper is among the most used products to mask off wide areas of vehicles during painting. Thanks to its thickness and consistence, it is preferred to masking film when protecting wide gaps such as window openings and trunks. Here are some tips to choose a good product and apply it properly.
What is masking paper used for and how does it work? Let’s start from the application: automotive masking paper must be used in combination with masking tape to protect wide areas and large gaps from paint overspray. Its use is easy and quick: you just have to apply masking tape to both the edges of the area to mask and the border of the sheet of paper, and then match the two with a masking technique known as tape on tape application.

Now masking paper is on place and you are ready to start with the painting.
