In critical masking applications, temperature can often play a role in the performance of your masking tape products. We’re breaking down low, mid, and high temperature masking tapes to help you find a product suitable for your application!
Low Temp Requirements
For general painting and exposure to elevated temperatures, BT-1008 and BT-808 are good options.
BT-1008 is ideal for indoor, short term painting, masking, or bundling applications. The crepe paper backing of BT-808 is highly conformable and tear resistant, and this product has been successful in automotive paint applications.
Mid-Grade Temp Requirements
When it comes to UV resistance, BT-7065 can be used outdoors for up to eight days and Killer Bee can endure up to 30 days in direct sunlight exposure.
High Temp Requirements
In high temperature applications, BT-7051 Ultra Violet™ and BT-908 are premium masking products. Ultra Violet™ features a washi paper backing for areas of high conformability, while BT-908 features a thicker backing construction for easy one-piece removal.
