quality (never mind the old numbers)

FYI… in case you are shopping for 233+ tape, it will be called 401+ in the future

Also the new yellow tape (which I like, its really nice for paint pinlines and a tad cheaper than 233) is now going to be numbered 301+.


"3M is proud to launch a new lineup of five industrial
masking tapes – 101+, 201+, 301+, 401+ and 501+ – built on increasing
levels of performance and engineered to perform in most all industrial
jobs that require a masking tape.

The new line includes 3M™ Value Masking Tape 101+ for basic jobs such as marking, temporarily holding, wrapping and sealing; 3M™ General Use Masking Tape 201+ that’s tough enough for everyday jobs like bundling, labeling and identifying; 3M™ Performance Yellow Masking Tape 301+ for industrial paint masking, bundling, color coding and sealing; 3M™ High Performance Green Masking Tape 401+/233+ for high performance industrial painting of aircraft, buses, trailers, trucks, boats, trains and other specialty vehicles; and 3M™ Specialty High Temperature Masking Tape 501+ for the highest degree of industrial performance in high temperature paint baking applications."


I knew Resinhead would want you to know!!!

Keith, i thought this was going to be a thread about maintaining the quality of your builds, THAT would be interesting.

But it seems Ive got the wrong end of the 'stick'.
