Conformable for Efficient Application The crepe-paper backing on 3M™ Automotive Refinish Masking Tape 388N offers good conformability, so you can stretch and manipulate the tape to fit curves and contours without tearing. The thin and flexible backing heightens the ability of the tape to conform and produce sharp, clean paint lines. Moisture-Resistant Tape Sticks and Stays The proprietary rubber-based adhesive delivers instant adhesion to a variety of automotive substrates including moldings, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and painted surfaces. Designed to withstand outdoor exposure, this tape is specially-treated for solvent and moisture resistance which minimizes bleed through. Given its ability to stick right away, 388N allows for fast and efficient application. 3M Automotive Refinish Masking Tape 388N is the result of a revolutionary manufacturing process, eliminating the use of solvents. 3M is recognized worldwide for its success in sustainable practices. This is a part of the continual investment in premier technologies to meet the needs of future generations. Clean, Fast Removal without Adhesive Residue We engineer 3M™ Automotive Refinish Masking Tape to meet today's paint technicians’ requirements for masking before painting. This tape can resist temperatures up to 250ºF (121ºC) for up to 30 minutes. Once you’re done painting, the tape removes cleanly and easily, in one piece – leaving behind no adhesive residue. 3M™ Automotive Refinish Masking Tape helps create smooth and precise paint jobs.
