Default Grout line tape

Just a quick request.
A pal of mine wants to source some tape he saw being used by some Venetian plaster installers (they wouldn't/couldn't tell him what it was). He describes it as a Buff colored tape with a cross weave fibre in it that you cannot tear with your fingers, is tough and fairly high tack. Sounds like packing tape to me but only 1/4" wide. I would think you could use it to stencil concrete with as well. Anyway, I would be very grateful if anyone knows what he's describing?
Thanks

Hard to say. From what you described it does indeed sound like packaging tape. You looking for high adhesion for concrete?

sounds to me like a good kind of fiber glass tape almost like what we have for drywalling, but theres many different brands and kinds out there.

Ah, it was a long shot.
These guys were apparently using the tape to mark out the mortar-lines on a wall, before Venetian-plaster over the top, then pulling the tape and hey-presto......stone blocked wall. Needed to be high-tack to stick to the backing plaster, and strong enough to pull up without tearing. Thanks for the input anyway.

I've done the same look with regular masking tape. Venetian plaster is troweled paper thin. And a lot are acrylic. Most any tape works.

You can get this fiber tape very easily at faux finish supply studios and especially at decorative concrete suppliers as well. Usually you can get 1/4" and 1/8th" widths.

Yeah its fiber tape, looks and feels like duct tape but stronger. I use if for our flooring stuff. Check with http://icoatproducts.com/, they may be able to ship some without an account.

I think it will be better to use Automotive masking tape.
