General Details

An easy to tear masking tape for quickly preparing most areas prior to decorating work and applying paint.

For use when masking flat, clean and fully dry surfaces with gloss or emulsion paints. This features a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer that allows the tape to be removed cleanly within 24 hours of paint application. For best results remove before any paint has dried. Please note that for masking surfaces for longer periods in direct sunlight, we recommend using Hippo 14 Day Masking Tape instead.
