9 mil all-purpose duct tape perfect for general maintenance applications such as wrapping & sealing, weather proofing, binding and bundling. Aggressive natural rubber adhesive adheres well to a wide variety of surfaces and offers a broad temperature range. Additional colors and sizes available (8 color options for easy identification).


110# fiberglass reinforced filament BOPP tape designed for packaging, palletizing and unitizing applications. Excellent adhesion to corrugated cartons. Outstanding holding power.

Clear polyester (PET) film coated both sides with a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive on a white release treated film release liner. For permanent bonding of similar and dissimilar surfaces, including metal, wood, plastics and others.
Double coated with an aggressive pressure-sensitive acrylic formulation, this 45 mil grey acrylic foam tape is engineered to bond to almost any surface. Intended for permanent bond of two surfaces. Conforms well to curves, moves and flexes as needed on applications requiring contortion and bending characteristics.

Hand Mask Film is a pre-folded high density polyethylene masking film. The thick and durable 12 micron film is treated to resist overspray flaking during paint applications. This special film is designed with a reinforced top edge formulated to prevent the underlying film from sticking.

High temperature masking tape designed for clean removal from a variety of surfaces such as anodized aluminum, titanium, magnesium and various copper-brass alloys common to the aerospace industry.

American® brand TM27 TrimFastTM is specifically designed for flush mount and inset molding around windshields and other automotive glass. Perforated for easy cornering, and eliminates the need for dangerous knives or razor blades. TM27 ensures clean removal from finished paint work without slivering, saving time and money!
“Fine line” masking tape uses thermally stabilized PVC backing with a rubber-based pressure-sensitive adhesive. Designedto offer a high degree of conformability without excessive stretch. Will hold and cleanly remove from surfaces in the presence of 250˚F (120˚C) for at least 30 minutes. Assures the user of a secure lay-down, no-residue-on, de-mask and a sharp, clean separation line.
Fineline Masking Tape - Preferred for medium to high temperature applications where a sharp, fine line is required including composite and fiberglass (gelcoat) fabrication. Designed to offer a high degree of conformability, is waterproof, and solvent-resistant. Operating temperature range of 40°F to 280°F (4.4°C to 138°C).
PT14 is a blue, pressure-sensitive masking tape designed for the most demanding professional painters. With its fine crepe paper backing, it provides excellent paint lines, cornering, and unsurpassed conformability. This painters’ tape will remove cleanly for up to 14 days, even with direct exposure to sunlight and high humidity. Typical applications include outdoor masking of woodwork, glass and metal surfaces, and marine painting applications.
This light green crepe paper backed painter's tape removes cleanly up to 8 days after application, even when exposed to direct sunlight. Resistant to humidity and paint bleed through. Secure adhesion with easy, clean removal from most surfaces.
