Painters Tape and Masking Tape
Many of us use masking tape quite frequently but have you ever wondered about its history? Invented by 3M employee Richard Drew, masking tape came about after Drew noticed auto-body workers frustration when trying to remove butcher paper taped to cars they were painting. According to Wikipedia, the strong adhesive on the tape was making the just-applied paint peel off the cars. The damage to the cars was increasing their costs as they needed to fix them. Drew saw the need for a milder adhesive tape and in 1925 came up with his masking tape invention.
Also known as sticky tape, masking tape is available in a variety of widths. This pressure-sensitive tape is thin, easy to tear, removable, and user-friendly. It will not leave a sticky residue nor damage most surfaces it adheres to, and is therefore, a popular choice among households as well as in commercial and industrial settings. Great for bundling, holding and sealing, this utility-purpose adhesive masking tape is strong yet repositionable. With crepe paper on one side and adhesive on the other, masking tape can even be written on unlike traditional transparent tape or packing tape.
