    Great stuff, left a nice clean edge without any running underneath the tape. Didn’t leave any residue or pull any existing paint off (but was only left on for a couple of hours so may differ with how long you leave it on)

    I was sent a sample of this tape and have to say it’s a good quality tape. Pulled away nicely after painting leave a crisp perfect edge. It stands well against the likes of other competitor tape and I will certainly be looking at using this tape again in the near future. 10 out of 10

    Had the low and medium tac masking tape and used it on a customers kid room. We did some lovely tramlines on woodchip with this tape and we had very little bleeds and hardly any touch ups at the end. It didn’t pull any exsisting paint off which tends to happen with the other masking tape we used to buy. This is now the ONLY masking tape we use on all jobs now. Excellent product and will definitely recommend.

    I picked up some sample rolls of the Masq tapes form the Painting & Decorating show in Coventry last week. I had the chance to try them out late last week, particularly the low tack purple masking tape. I had a feature wall to paint so I used the purple tape to mask off the corner of the adjoining wall to et a nice sharp line. The adjoining wall had been painted literally a couple of hours before so I was taking a bit of a chance with the tape, but I can safely say that I didn't need to worry. The purple tape had just the right amount of tack to stick to the wall and removed cleanly and easily to leave a nice sharp line with no lifting of the previously painted surface. I think this is going to be my 'go to' tape for low tack use from now on. I just need to know where I can purchase more of these from now ?

    I was recently given a sample of this purple painters low tack masking tape. I must say I was impressed, I used it for masking windows, door frames and the edge of some decorative coving with great results. There was no bleed from the tape and it adhered well to freshly painted surfaces with no peeling of existing paint! 100% would reccomend.

    Great tape, lovely clean lines after removing, low tack tape but sticky enough to grab the surface and paint up to, removing it was easy came away in one piece instead of ripping into little bits, definitely a tape I will be using in the future, top stuff

    So I was sent a sample of the purple Masq tape. Applied to water based satin painted the day before and it was spot on. No peeling of the satin, no residue and no creeping underneath. A nice clean Sharp edge. Thanks for the sample. I have a small video but can't upload it here.

    I got sent a free roll of this tape and I have got to say I am very, very impressed! I've used it in several different finishes including Matt, silk and satin and the finish is sharp and clean. Looks mint! Thank you, I've now got my new go to tape!

    I've used this tape after being sent a sample out on two different jobs, one was applied after a day of painting water based satinwood on, and one after about 4 hours of apply water based satinwood, I've not had it pull at all, its leaves a nice crisp sharp lines, doesn't rip when being pulled off either, I'm always on the hunt for new masking tape that does a excellent job and doesn't cost the earth, this tape is definitely what I've been looking for, it's definitely on my list of go to masking tapes, and I look forward to using the red and gold tapes.

    Used the Purple tape today. I’m working on different methodologies when it comes to painting especially when using water based paints. The purple tape is great for giving a razor sharp straight edge to all of your woodwork. I used it on top of waterbasd Satinwood and it was left over night. On removal it didn’t pull any of the woodwork paint off and left a great finish.

    I have recently trialed the purple painters tape. I was impressed by the quality feel of the tape. The level of tack to the adhesive seemed a little strong but on removal it pulled away with little effort. The lines were clean and crisp and having used on Dulux Diamond Satinwood that had only cured for a day I was a little worried that it may pull some of the paint off. I needn’t have worried, even though the tape itself was left in situ for well over 24 hours, with the first coat of emulsion having been applied on the previous day, it pulled away easily and left a great line with no paint bleed. A good quality tape that I will use again without hesitation.

    Left on for 24hrs on some satinwood that was 24hrs dry, no paint bleed and no pulling of the satinwood on removal, was easy to use with my hand masker I would definitely use again as it's a reliable product.

    Excellent masking tape no excess paint bleed underneath the tape and left a nice clean finish and when removing the tape never pulled of any of the paint of the surface that was masked, best tape I've used in a long time

    Great product

    I used this product to protect laminate beading whilst decorating a hallway. The low tack meant the beading wasn’t damaged and the tape left a clean sharp edge. Excellent product in my opinion.
