Masking Tape

Here at No1 Packaging, we offer a diverse range of masking tape, also commonly known as painter's tape or decorator’s tape - all at great-value prices. Whether you’re a professional painter and decorator or DIY enthusiast, masking tape is a must-have piece of equipment to keep in your toolbox - and in our wholesale masking tape collection, you’ll find affordable, high-quality solutions to decorating dilemmas of all kinds.

Why use masking tape

Masking tape has a few unique properties which make it a perfect companion for painting and decorating projects, as it can be used almost anywhere. Whether you’re ensuring there are no bleeding colours between ceilings and walls or you’re using it to protect windows from paint splashes, this tape will help you achieve a professional finish.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the practical perks that make masking tape the only option for painting and decorating projects: 

  • Instant adhesion: our masking tapes are designed to stick to most surfaces, including painted walls, wood, glass and metal, being used to mark off specific areas for painting projects, crafts and more
  • No residue: this excellent adhesion won’t cause issues further down the line, though, as our masking tape can be easily removed without leaving any glue residue behind or damaging the original surface
  • Multi-purpose: masking tape can be used either to protect surfaces from paint, lacquer or varnish when decorating, or as a guide for painting straight lines
  • Durable: all of our masking tapes offer good resistance to water and solvents - including most paints - and our blue masking tape is UV-resistant for up to 2 weeks. This makes our masking tape suitable for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications
  • Easy to use: masking tape is easy to tear and can be ripped by hand or cut to your desired length with no hassle, making it quick and hassle-free to apply

Masking tape applications

Most typically associated with painting and decorating applications, masking tape is in fact far more versatile than it gets credit for, being used in a variety of applications and industries. 

If you’re wondering whether masking tape is the right choice for your project, here are some of the ways it can be used:

  • Painting and decorating: for professional decorators, masking tape is a must-have for painting to protect surfaces and keep lines crisp and neat, as well as acting as a guideline to keep lines and shapes tidy
  • Automotive: with good adhesion to glass and metal, masking tape is commonly used in the automotive trade for protecting surfaces during bodywork paint jobs
  • Carpentry and crafts: easy to tear with good adhesion to a variety of surfaces including wood, masking tape works well in carpentry and crafting applications as a guide marker and protective edge during painting
  • Building and construction: as a general purpose tape, masking tape has a few handy uses in building and construction environments. These include acting as a protective layer when cutting or drilling materials to prevent the surface from splitting and the cutting blade from slipping. It also works well to secure glued items in place while drying and for binding together small parts from furniture to prevent them from being lost
