3M revolutionized industrial and consumer markets when it invented Masking Tape in 1925. The company said it is once again poised to revolutionize the industry, this time, by Making Masking Simple.

“Choosing an industrial masking tape should be simple,” said Matthew Van Vleet, U.S. product manager at 3M. “Customers need to have confidence that they’re using the right level of performance for the job.” To make this happen, 3M is proud to launch a new lineup of five industrial masking tapes – 101+, 201+, 301+, 401+ and 501+ – built on increasing levels of performance and engineered to perform in most all industrial jobs that require a masking tape.

The new line includes 3M Value Masking Tape 101+ for basic jobs such as marking, temporarily holding, wrapping and sealing; 3M General Use Masking Tape 201+ that’s tough enough for everyday jobs like bundling, labeling and identifying; 3M Performance Yellow Masking Tape 301+ for industrial paint masking, bundling, color coding and sealing; 3M High Performance Green Masking Tape 401+/233+ for high performance industrial painting of aircraft, buses, trailers, trucks, boats, trains and other specialty vehicles; and 3M Specialty High Temperature Masking Tape 501+ for the highest degree of industrial performance in high temperature paint baking applications.

According to Van Vleet, 3M’s new five-tape system is designed to help customers choose the right level of performance for the job. Too often, customers use the same level of masking tape performance for painting a vehicle as they use for hanging up a piece of paper on the wall. Until now, most masking tape has been tan, and difficult to differentiate. As a result, customers use the highest level of performance on all jobs, so they don’t introduce risk into their process. With the new lineup of 3M Masking Made Simple tapes, performance levels will be easy to determine, creating an opportunity to drive improvements through choosing the right performance level. www.3M.com
