What is Masking Tape?

Masking tape is a type of pressure-sensitive tape that is made of thin and easy-to-tear paper as well as easily released pressure-sensitive adhesive. The easily released pressure-sensitive adhesive is the key to this product's usefulness because it allows for the tape to be easily removed without leaving residue or damaging the surface that it is applied to. This type of tape is commonly used for painting applications, but it can also be used for a variety of other projects. Find the right masking tape for your application at HomElectrical. Our tapes are high quality and competitively priced, so shop today!

Can you paint with masking tape?

Masking tape can be used when painting, but can be a bit tricky. Sometimes masking tape will pucker up which allows the paint to bleed through. We recommend using Scotch blue painter's tape for easy and sharp line.

How long do you leave masking tape on after painting?

One coat of paint usually takes about one hour to dry. You should not remove the masking tape, or painter's tape until the paint is completely dried. We recommend waiting overnight until the paint feels hard and dry.
