TapeCase is a 3M Preferred Converter; we sell 3M tapes in non-standard sizes. 3M has partnered with TapeCase to make their products available in a larger assortment of sizes. Adhesive tape converting is the process of taking large master rolls of adhesive tape and converting it into specific sizes or shapes that make it easier to use in a variety of applications.
A masking tape should specify what surfaces it will stick to and the interval over which it will remove cleanly. A very thin or poorly manufactured tape may demonstrate splintering or shredding, either coming off the roll or when being removed after use. Some masking tapes have the tensile strength for light commercial and industrial applications, including bundling, labeling, sealing, temporary repairs, lane marking, splicing and surface protection.
