Automotive Paint Masking
Masking Tapes and Films for Vehicles
Paint masking is one of the most important steps taken in automotive refinishing and collision repair before any paint is applied onto the car, and masking tapes and films have a significant role in pre-painting preparation. The end result of a paint process can depend on something so simple yet crucial as application of masking supplies.

We provide efficient solutions for masking complete panels and blending paint in partial refinishing processes.
Efficient and Time-Saving Masking
The importance of using masking tape also comes from the need to paint panels and sections of the car while they are still in place. Naturally, one of the safest ways to paint a panel or a component is to completely remove it from the vehicle and paint it separately in a booth where paint spray can be controlled the best, but this introduces removal and reassembly time into the preparation and finishing processes. With modern cars, components such as doors and hatches are increasingly complicated to remove, so it is understandable to leave them in place for painting.
With quality masking tapes and films, the component can be left on the vehicle and painted in place without fear of overspray reaching the rest of the vehicle and marring the finish elsewhere, saving time in preparation and post-paint work – and eliminating problems in component removal and refitting.
