A few weeks ago, I got to try the masq Ultimate Painter’s Tape for the very first time. Having heard lots of good things about the higher tack tape, I decided to use the red coloured tape across two jobs to test it in every way, an interior and an exterior project.
Exterior use on windows
The exterior project consisted of preparing and repainting some old wooden, very weathered window frames. I masked around the rough window frames, sticking the tape directly on the glass panels.
The tape was left on for about 10 days with minimum UV exposure. It adhered very well and had no issues coping with the high humidity levels of the early spring weather. I had no issues removing the higher tack tape and there was no unwanted residue left behind on the glass. A perfect first experience and exactly what a decorator wants.
The Ultimate Painter’s Tape is described as the perfect tape for rougher surfaces due to its high tack. Furthermore, it’s great for outdoor projects as it is UV resistant for up to 120 days and resists temperatures of up to 80C.
Interior use on woodwork
On the interior wood surfaces that I needed to mask off, the Ultimate Painter’s tape performed just as well whilst using water-based paint. It maintained a nice clean edge and left me with sharp flat lines.
This time the tape was only left on for a couple of days, therefore removal of the tape was once again easy, and didn’t leave any sticky residue.
One of my biggest pet hates when using masking tape is when the tape doesn’t come off the roll easily enough or tears. This was not the case when using the red masq tape. It came off the roll with ease and there was no tearing or shredding. Thumbs up!
The “Stress less just masq” tape range
In my eyes, the masq Painter’s and Masking Tape range is one of the best selections of professional and DIY tapes on the market, and I can highly recommend them to any decorator.
The tape performed extremely well on both projects, and I’m keen to say that I have found a new reliable tape for those rougher, irregular surfaces. My professional decorator colleagues out there will know that it’s not easy to find the right masking tape, but I would encourage everyone to give the masq by Ciret Painter’s and Masking Tapes a try.
I personally can’t wait to try another tape from the masq range. The lilac coloured masq Sensitive Painter’s Tape, which is for particularly sensitive surfaces, is high up on my list.
