Here yah go. Give this a shot, it works pretty well for us. Buy it by the box at least once or twice a week. We've switched from the 3m - 2020 and cp66 to this stuff. Plus it doesn't really leave a residue behind which is awesome too.

2x, barely.



And how much does tape coming off during a spray job or what not cost?



Worth the extra $2.00

You're the only other person that I've seen here that uses it. I order it by the case. Pg5 or blok it are the only tapes I use unless taping concrete. Go team ipg!

Have never heard of any problems with any tape. Greasy walls? Wipe them. Using anything, best for the trim and corners is Rodda's blue and 3m orange blue. PG5 is hard to tear, best used on outside and masker. Any blue tape is fine, but the thing is, never, ever tape everything for "tomorrow". Tape one room, do it, unmask. Move to the next one. BS blue tape not sticking. Have never used any "frog" type of thing, what's the point?

Because frog tape will give you nice clean lines when you really don't want to mess with cutting in, especially when spraying. It's additional insurance to get nice clean lines without having to fuss with cuts.



And it works without needing to caulk the tape, that's an extra step that can be eliminated, which saves time and money.



Not in all situations, but enough situations to justify it's use.

Spraying will give you nice lines with any tape. Cutting in also, just gotta know how to run the tape line with a brush, long fat stroke one direction, no pressing. But to each his own)

Correct.


But the OP didn't mention anything about spraying in his post.


For spraying, unless you really over load it, any tape will do. IF it stays on, hence the tape suggestion.

It is a good method to use the masking tape. and after applying the good colors on the walls. You should always hang the pretty and attractive paintings. Do you have any idea what kind of paintings should i hang in my 15 year old daughter?

Is anyone aware of a low tack tape that is readily available? Ive been having some issues since with tape peeling the paint off walls, sometimes even with yellow frog tape.

Get your local supplier to carry Intertape PG-29. This stuff is a very good low tack that s thicker so it won't shred on a masker.
Sherwin can order it but they have to meet a minimum that they a re at times reluctant to do

I use basic painters tape for almost everything and on interiors it is easy enough to remove up to a month, many blue tapes are good for wall paper and so on but why pay 6 dollars a roll when the white tape does the job.

I noticed one person say "Real Painters do not use tape" If you are a painter and do not use paint then I would not hire you when I am too old to paint myself. There is not a person alive that can cut a straight line as tape can.

Anyway BLOC tape does it's job, the stretch of the tape is a consideration especially along tile and hardwood floors.
