    3M™ General Use Masking Tape 201+ sticks and holds to a variety surfaces such as paper, fiberboard, glass, rubber, plastic, metal, and removes cleanly with no residue.

    Use our General Use Masking Tape 201+ for general indoor applications to fulfill light-to-medium duty bundling such as wrapping electrical cords, air hoses, quickly bundling parts and other light industrial items. Write on it to create temporary labels, post signs, or mark boundaries; and when the job is done, remove it without unwanted tearing or slivering. This versatile tape unwinds smoothly from the roll for good control and tears easily by hand. 3M™ General Use Masking Tape 201+ is a handy item in industrial settings, around the office, in the home, and provides dozens of solutions as needs arise. What is Masking Tape?. Masking tape was developed specifically to help protect surrounding surfaces from overspray, provide clean paint lines, and remove easily and cleanly when finished. 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. The backing, typically crepe paper, can conform to curved and irregular surfaces. The tape hand tears for tool-free application.A masking tape should specify what surfaces it will stick to and the interval over which it will remove cleanly. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may demonstrate splintering or shredding, either coming off the roll or when being removed after use. Some masking tapes have the tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, including bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing, and surface protection. The classic crepe paper masking tape is a light tan color, but our masking tapes come in a variety of colors and formulations to meet general and specific applications. A roll of masking tape is basic toolbox or supply room item in construction, warehousing, military, marine, shipping, and retail industries.
