Lacquer paper tape, also known as masking tape, is a specialised type of adhesive tape that is often used in painting and varnishing processes. This tape has many uses, such as masking areas that are to remain free of paint or varnish, protecting edges from dirt, or creating straight or patterned paint lines.
Features of varnish paper tape:
Lacquer tape is made of paper, which makes it soft, flexible and easily adheres to surfaces.
Painter’s paper tape has a special adhesive which ensures good adhesion to a variety of surfaces, but at the same time allows the tape to be easily removed without leaving adhesive residue or damaging the surface.
Paint and varnish resistance
The varnish tape is resistant to solvents and chemicals used in paints or varnishes, so that it is not damaged during painting.
Lacquer paper tape is resistant to high temperatures, making it suitable for painting processes that require heating, such as powder coating or oven painting.
Lacquer paper tape is available in different widths to suit different applications and needs.
Applications for varnish paper tape:
Paint tape is commonly used in bodyshops, where it is used to mask off car parts or other objects before painting.
Painter’s tape is also used during renovation work, for example to mask window frames, mouldings or furniture before painting.
Creating patterns and lines
Painter’s tape makes it possible to create straight or patterned paint lines on walls or other surfaces to achieve precise decorative effects.
Protecting and marking
Painters’ tape can also be used to protect and mark various objects, e.g. to protect edges from damage or to mark items for assembly.
