I am feeling better at the moment

I needed to make a couple squares on a commercial job yesterday. The perfect situation to try the free tape they sent me. Read the label and did as the said for the flat paint situation. Applied the paint, let it dry and pulled the tape. The first foot, just fine. and THEN, it started lifting not only the cured( for a couple years) paint but the face of the drywall. Every couple feet it did this. What a freeking night mare. Spent hours patching and re taping with the blue orange core tape( which I had with me) and managed to fix it all. I am back to being pissed

I've never used a tape, yet, even a delicate surface (orange core) tape that won't pull the finish paint off BEFORE giving the wall an over-nite dry time. When I'm pressed for time, I'll carefully "lay" the tape on the freshly painted surface and then use a fingernail to press the very edge next to the trim just enough to get a seal. I've found that applying pressure to just the very edge (as little as possible)next to the trim has worked for me- more often than not. You may want to at least try this method, next time. It takes a little longer but, won't create the nightmare that you describe and many of us have experienced. Good luck.

I think he meant it pulled the existing paint off along with the face paper of the drywall, not that it pulled fresh paint off.

Chris,
Sorry to hear that, I really appreciate you being part of our product testing team and hate to hear of the trouble it caused. I have forwarded your comments and information directly to the manufacturer, not sure if there is anything that they can do to help your situation, but they do appreciate the feedback, good and bad.
Thanks

Yellow frog tape is a delicate tape. I use it all the time even on feature walls where the paint has only dried 1hour. Never had a problem

I've heard a few good reviews about it, maybe the wall was painted with Behr.

When u pull tape asap get it to 180 degrees, and down and away, whatever kind a tape it is, and u won't have problems. If u pull it at 90 degrees u are very likely to have problems. Pull it at 45 degrees I don't care what kinda tape it is you're very likely gonna pull off the surface with it.

And when you are applying.. You only seal the business side of the tape and just snug not too hard, less surface sticking.
One reason I most like the cheap white tape, it's sticky, sealing a hair thickness of it on the business side of it is easy.
Them colored tapes? They are either lacking that stick ( the blue) or they are too maliable (yellow, green and so on) IMO to use these two techniques.
