Rated 2 out of 5Â 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 1 out of 5Â by Ratface Dissapointed with 3M
I've been a Pro boat painter and varnisher for many years. Used 3M Blue tape for most of the years. It seems that the Blue is getting worse and worse. It leaves behind the adhesive and the requires extra work in detailing the boat. It is especially true on gel-coat and on sanded surfaces. If it is not detailed very thoroughly and carefully the dust and dirt will stick to the adhesive causing nasty looking tape width dark lines and irate calls from yacht owners. The extra time to detail is really a pain and unneeded extra expense for the owners or myself if it is a flat rate job. I'll be finding a new tape to use.

This tape was my life saver because it helped prevent making a mess. The edge lock cuts right thru the tape and when your done painting the tape comes right off without any problems. I will definitely keep this on hand.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by CAK2000 Tape does not adhere well
Used this to tape plastic to a smooth painted wood surface to protect a window from paint over-spray. We used this tape to protect the paint on the wood from damage. The surface was clean and dry and the tape was applied in 6-inch strips around the window. After an hour, the tape strips were peeling off and some were no longer adhering. Now, we have to re-tape the window (which is not an easy task from a high ladder!).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jejaro Beats any product out there....
I have used all types of types when dealing with trim work...
And usually end up with grumbling about how it removed some of the paint or how it seeped under the tape... But thats NOT a problem with Blue...I use it with all my trim work when painting...it locks out seeping and it doesn't pull off paint...Won't use anything else...
