This tape does everything a detailer could ask for. Its adhesive strength allows for easy masking of complex badges and large expanses of curved trim while still allowing for residue-free removal. It holds up very well to accidental disturbances from a buffer and a small amount of water or other liquid won't disturb it. It is FAR superior to blue painter's tape, regular tan masking tape of various brands, and it even outperforms competing tape from Meguiar's. This is one product which truly makes my job easier and more enjoyable.

Just wide enough to protect body trims from the throw of your Rupes Bigfoot when getting in close! More water resistant that the Blue 3M, in my experience.. which comes in handy when wetsanding isolated areas.

This is really a great product for detailing. Sticks well and won't peel up if the edge of my buffing pad goes over it. No residue left when I peel it off. Except for the green color this tapes looks and feels like generic blue painters tape you can find at your local store, but it is in a completely different league. I cheaped out and bought some generic blue painters tape from local Big Lots store and it would not stick well and left residue. Lesson learned...this is really a great product and believe me I'm not one to over spend just to have a brand name. This tape makes masking your car hassle free and is worth what you pay for it if you're the type of person who likes to do things right.
