Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is a high-performance crepe paper masking tape designed to perform well in most industrial painting situations, including the use of bake cycles.

Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A is a rubber adhesive tape with instant adhesion that sticks easily and allows fast application. It features good holding power that resists lifting or curling to help reduce rework and superior adhesive transfer resistance with clean removal. Typical physical and performance characteristics include: thickness: 7.6 mil, adhesion to steel: 38 oz/in width, tensile strength: 28 lbs/in width, elongation at break: 10%, temperature use range: up to 300°F (148°C). The smooth mini-crepe backing results in excellent surface contact with very secure holding. It provides excellent conformability and easy handling that helps reduce time involved in application. The backing is solvent and moisture-resistant to help reduce bleed-through and has good dead stretch for minimal recovery. It is ideal for easy-to-tear backing aids in handling, yet strong enough to resist slivering, giving one-piece removal. Scotch® Paint Masking Tape 231/231A has a special back size treatment to give a balanced unwind. It is paint flake resistant to help reduce rework due to contamination. It can be certified for ASTM-D6123/D6123M97 and it replaces obsolete PPP-T-42C, Type 1, (CID-A-A-883A).
