This 3M tape is particularly suitable for pin striping, multicolor and other custom painting applications. It is a thin, conformable green polypropylene film tape with a special finish that resists paint runoff. The adhesive adheres instantly and offers good holding power, resists lifting and curling. Stretchable and easy to handle. Provides an extremely fine color-line separation for decorative painting of aircraft. Scotch No. 218. Tape Thickness: 4.8 mils (0.12 mm)
Note: Sold in 60 yd. rolls.
Sticks well, no bleeding with butyrate dope, flexible enough to lay down, not time critical. Good stuff!
3M 218 SCOTCH FINE LN TAPE 1/4
The best tape there is.
3M SCOTCH FINE LINE TAPE 1/8"
Great product . Clean crisp lines with butyrate dope.
First tape I have found to make perfect color separations using water born aviation paint. No bleed through and perfect clean lines are achieved.
Ditto on the previous review. This 3M tape really provides for some precision fine lines and is priced well from Spruce compared to local paint and 3M jobbers.
Fine line tape is THE product to use for painting. Spruce has a good price, cheaper than I can purchase locally for the same product.
