At the dawn of the 20th century auto painters were struggling to create clean lines between two-tone paint jobs. 3M engineer Richard Drew responded with the world’s first masking tape: a tan crepe paper backed with a pressure sensitive adhesive. For almost a century the technology in our masking tapes has continued to evolve based on your needs. Today we’re proud to help you explore new and better ideas.
