Solvent Base Waterproof Masking Tapes
The ideal masking tapes for waterborne paints
In a changing market, attentive to the environment, the increasing use of water base paints in painting operations has required an adequate development of complementary products including waterproof masking tapes that are able to better manage the interaction between the water and the paper backing typical of the standard masking tapes.
For that reason, PPM Industries developed a range of waterproof masking tapes to ensure the best response to both in OEM and body shop aftermarket applications, during activities in the marine and aerospace segment and in the building & renovation sector. All the products of the range are paper masking tapes with high performance qualities, including the ability to resist all the paints with a water-based formula.
The range includes some automotive masking tapes designed to resist the extreme conditions of drying cycles in spray booths. These products are high temperature masking tapes with resistance up to 120°, available in the yellow shade typical of the most popular automotive masking tapes.
The products displayed are solvent adhesive tapes that provide excellent balance between hold and easy application/removal. Due to their adhesive formulation and to the particular backing treatment, the waterproof masking tapes do not leave residues after removal, do not lift from the surfaces under high temperatures and ensure excellent paint edge once in contact with water base paints.
