Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by carl Peels paint off ceiling & window sill. Awesome.
Works great as a paint peeler. When I was slowly removing the tape after painting, it peeled paint off of both the ceiling and window sill. Thanks for nothing 3M!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by r1279k Worst tape I have ever used
Better off not using tape at all. I used this tape and got the worst bleed through. It was great for not peeling off the newly painted surface, but I will now how to redo all my lines that this tape should have been able to do. Oh well it was worth a shot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Outdrs Bled past the edge - Pictures attached
Did the tape keep from pulling off the fresh base coat? Yes.
Did the tape keep the accent stripe from bleeding at the edge? No.
Normally I stick to my Frog tape, but since that requires the base paint to set for 3 days, I gave this tape a try. It adhered to the wall nicely and the edge looked like it was sealed to the wall quite well, but when I was done; well, you look at the pictures.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alvin Works for purpose intended
Works for purpose intended.... use it for marking off paint lines and trim lines of doors and window, ceilings and floors.... Nice crisp line when you're done. This delicate one does not lift paint as long as the paint has had time to dry. Don't put it on "almost dry" paint and expect it to avoid pulling up paint. Naturally, the cost of this product is stratospheric.

Great product - performs exactly to the advertised specifications. Delicate Surface tape went on easily and came off easily with no paint pull and the sharpest line I have every seen using any painters tape.
As specified, Delicate Surface painters tape should be used on previously painted or primed surfaces. The tape does not adhere well to unpainted or rough surfaces (but it is not designed for these surfaces).
For any job, buy Multi-Surface tape for rough or unpainted surfaces and Delicate Surface tape for the freshly painted surfaces and you will be impressed with your results.
I am very satisfied with this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by joepotterhomepainting Good but could be better
I'm a painter. I use TONS of tape and find that 2080L is NOT good on paper of veneer laminates as it is recommended for. USE caution if you use this tape on these kinds of surfaces. Problems is - all the other types act the same way on these surfaces. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Works better than Frog tape
I have used green Frog tape for some time to get crisp clean lines around a room. I prefer to tape everything if I am painting fresh drywall. Considering the time for three coats (one primer, two paint) it saves tons of time over cutting in by hand. (paint/primer in one can is a whole different topic!) I tried the delicate (yellow) Frog tape and it was terrible. Would not stick very well until I had at least the primer on to seal it down. So, I went out and bought 3M Blue tape with orange label. This tape worked awesome for me. It never allowed bleed through. I always make sure I have it down using a putty knife or my pinky finger. Pulls off cleanly and leaves a straight line. Yes sometimes a little of the wall paint did come with it, but that is easy to deal with and expected when sticking tape to it one day after application. I'm not a dummy and expect it to be perfect one day later. If you want no peel off, wait a week for the wall paint to 'cure' more. Paint needs about 30 days to dry completely on a molecular level. Bonus is, this tape is less expensive than the Frog tape! I am sold. Thanks for making a great product. 3M knows adhesives.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MamaSunshine Doesn't stick and bleeds
I taped off my walls to paint ceiling of a complete bath remodel. I finished and turned around and it was all falling off. I pressed hard and tried again, it kept falling off. Went straight to garbage. However it did stick to the tile around shower but when I pulled it off, it had bled through and looks terriable. It has caused me so much extra work. Will return what I have and will never buy again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
