When painting it is important to pick the correct type of tape for the type of painting job you are undertaking in order to correctly protect or not damage any paintwork.
When you want to maintain a straight edge between types or colours of paint, you will need to use precision masking tape. Precision tape is different from conventional masking tape as it has a far less sticky adhesive backing, making it much easier to remove without damaging the paint or finish.
When you want to protect areas from paint use masking tape and suitable sheeting.
To mask a Hanging Light fixture put a plastic bag over it and secure it to the cord with masking tape.
Large furniture in the center of the room such as Dining Furniture, Televisions, Sofas, Coffee Tables etc can be draped with masking film.
To mask off one surface from another, run a band of 2-inch-wide painter’s tape along the edge of the surface that won’t be painted.
At the baseboard of the wall put the tape along the upper edge to form a barrier to catch paint drips.
Cover trim with Precision Masking Tape.
If you’re painting an entire room or a carpeted area, consider covering the floor with plastic sheeting. Top the plastic with a canvas drop cloth which is far more durable and will absorb paint splatters.
Cover hinges and other hard-to-remove hardware with masking tape. Unscrew or remove other types of hardware. If the existing hardware is coated with old paint, consider dropping it into a container filled with paint remover
Mask window glass with painter’s or masking tape. Leave about small gap between the tape and each glazing bar so the paint will seal the joint between the wood and glass.
Remove the masking tape when the paint is tacky but not entirely dry.
Tapes are easy to remove and are used to protect surfaces temporarily while painting. Unless otherwise stated, most tapes are not conventionally recyclable.
Read the packaging label on your masking tape. If you see a recycle symbol or other statement on the packaging, dispose of the tape in your usual recycling container.
Dispose of small amounts of masking tape in your regular recycle bin. The masking tape won't be recycled, but it is easily separated from the other products.
