Mitsui Masking Tape™ Protects Metal Surfaces


Metal Protection


Mitsui Masking Tape™ may be used to protect sheets of precoated metal, enameled steel, stainless steel and surfaced treated aluminum. Mitsui Masking Tape™ should not be applied to copper or brass surfaces, because the adhesive may react chemically with the surface and cause discoloration.


Mitsui Masking Tape™ Protects Formed Metal Parts




With its environmentally friendly water-based acrylic adhesive, Mitsui Masking Tape™ may be applied to rolled metal plate with an inline lamination system. The protected metal plate may then be sheared into sheets for subsequent molding and forming processes.



Mitsui Masking Tape May be Applied by Inline Lamination


While a laminator is recommended for the application of Mitsui Masking Tape™, the product may be applied by hand. When applying Mitsui Masking Tape™ by hand, the user should stretch both ends of the tape in opposite directions to prevent air bubbles between the surface and the tape.
