Re: Remove your masking tape!

I pull my tape off as soon as the work is done and I draw it away at a 45 degree angle toward the newly applied material. This suits me best and with a well defined line.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

I used some of the blue tape on deck a couple years ago and could not remove
Had to change sail cover, dodger and Bimini but now everything is a match

Re: Remove your masking tape!

I myself have only ever used electrical insolation tape. sticks very well to flowcoat or resin with wax in it.
Leaves a very crisp line when painting and is easy to remove...from GPR plastics metals and wood..
and will stay fixed for weeks...
and cheap to buy and has other uses as well

Re: Remove your masking tape!

Well, today I just pulled the last of the Blue off. I did a little unintentional experiment with Green Frog Tape and 3M blue. I left the green on nearly a week; it came right off. I left the blue on about 4 days. It came off but was way better adhered (not a good thing) It even ripped and left some little strips that I had to go back and lift with a knife. So. I'm for going to stay with frog for now, even though I have lots of the blue laying around.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

GooBgone works for tape residue but it's not strong enough to remove paint and varnish. Or, does it go bad with age?

Yes Goo gone is strong stuff, and needs a solvent to get it off as well! We use it by the gallon at work and it will make some plastics look new, but you have to go over it with alcohol to get the greasy coating off. I find WD40 works wonders as well, and does not leave much residue. In fact cleaning and drying out a fishing reel is about all I would ever use it for.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

Between the price of goo-stuff, or any solvent these days, and the extra time to use it, and paper towels or scrubbing pads, or whatever...

I think I'd rather spend the same money up front on buying the silver masking tape, and save myself all the time and mess on the clean cleanup.

Just one man's opinion.

3M even makes a black masking tape http://www.shop3m.com/60455064141.html?WT.z_bynt=1
another special product designed to resist UV and peel clean. They all get ratty if they've been kept around too long though.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

Scotchblue tape is fantastic, it has a lot more plastic in it, leaves a cleaner line and is rated for long removal. Wonderful stuff.

Not in my experience JG, but everyone is entitled to their own.
