Takes paint off walls!
My professionally painted walls looked great - until I tried this tape when painting the trim. The walls were fully cured (2 1/2 months) and the tape was on less than 24 hours. I now have walls that will need serious touch-ups. So frustrated

    New look but same great tape!
    I routinely purchase this 3M/Scotch brand delicate surface tape from Home Depot to use for all sorts of painting and other projects. Having used generic and Frog brand painting tapes in the past with terrible results, I don't even bother looking at other brands of tapes and instead head straight for the trusted 3M branded rolls. The delicate surface tape is designed for making very sharp paint lines on surfaces that may be damaged by using regular masking tape or the regular 3M blue painters tape. However, instead of having multiple rolls for multiple reasons, I have found no reason at all to use anything other than this model 2080 tape for all of my projects. PACKAGING: Very basic, just a simple plastic wrapping. There isn't a lot of information printed on the roll of tape as this product is mostly understood how it's to be used. QUALITY: 3M is a trusted name and generally is the 'cadillac' of whatever it is you are shopping for. The cost is usually a bit more but you do get what you pay for and I am happy to pay extra to get the quality I receive from this tape. Delicate surface or not, I take time and make sure it is adhered properly with sharp mitered corners where appropriate and then I ready for painting. One tip that will serve you well is to go around the perimeter of the tape with your brush and just barely wet the edge of it with paint. Do not goop a large amount of paint along the edges of this or any tape and expect it to hold the paint back. It won't. So take your time and barely wet it and then after about a half hour of dry time, you can come back and paint along it with the full amount of paint that's appropriate for your project. The reason you barely wet it the first time is so that you allow the paint to bond with the edge of the tape and not seep under it. This is how you get such crisp lines when you pull the tape off. Pull the tape off when appropriate (there are multiple helpful articles under the Info and Guides section of this webpage) and at the proper angle. If the paint begins to come off with the tape, there are ways to deal with that such as using a razor blade to cut the bond or consider not gooping up large amounts of paint up to and on top of the tape - or buy better quality paint. RECOMMENDATION: Consider using the delicate surface tape for all of your projects in which you desire crisp paint lines. It is the thinnest of the painters tapes on the market, yet has great adhesion and release properties. It's well worth the extra cost to get a better result. PRO's: Great adhesion, can be left on the surface for up to 60 days, comes in multiple widths, seals out paint if you 'prime' it first. Con's: It is more costly than other tapes and depending on the surface, may not adhere as well as regular painters tape.

    Pulled Paint Off.
    It was easy to put the tape on, getting it off without ripping the paint off of the walls was another story. I am going to have to go around and not only fix where the paint was pulled off but were the paint went underneath of the tape. I pressed to seal it, clearly it didn’t work. I definitely would not recommend this tape to anyone as you are going to spend more time fixing the issues that it creates than not. Walls were prepped and left to dry for 48 hours, The label said it had to be at least 24 hours.. Clearly it did not matter

      Great Quality Easy to Use
      Love this tape! We accidentally left a portion of the tape on after painting for a week and I was so worried it would peel off the paint. I gently removed it and it came off beautifully! This tape is easily removed but also easily applied - even readjustable if need be. Highly recommended.

        Pulled the Ceiling Paint Off
        Painted part of my kitchen yesterday and when I pulled the tape off this morning I had a lot of paint from the ceiling pulled off by the tape. This is the delicate tape so I’m wondering about the roll of general tape (2005) I bought. Not happy!!

          Yes I received my package with my painters tape inside a different color burgundy Delicate Surface... but it still is 3M a good brand to buy when you need something to work.

            The blue tape kept pulling off the paint. I normally did not have that problem but I assume the differences in the wall were the key. So, I accidentally saw this one on the shelf and said let me try it. It certainly did the trick. Pulled off easily without pulling the paint at all.

            Perfect on freshly painted walls
            I used this on a freshly painted wall to add metallic vertical stripes. The tape sealed out excess paint and I was left with perfectly crisp lines all the way across, and no peeling.

              RUINED WALLPAPER!
              Used on a bedroom remodel. Was going to leave the existing wallpaper but as you can see from pictures, the tape that had been there less than 24 hours pealed off the wallpaper that was I under it. This is a costly repair as now the wall has to be refinished!! This tape does not do what it says it will, DO NOT USE IT ON WALLPAPER!!

                Perfect for delicate surfaces
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Scotch Painters Tape has always been a quality product that has many uses in our household. This version for delicate surfaces is amazing! It does exactly what painters tape is meant to do, but is even more gentle to the surface it's applied to. Removes easily, cleanly and completely without disturbing or marring the surface and leaves a super clean line that I have come to expect from Scotch Painters Tape. Perfection as always from Scotch and 3M!

                    Great for newly painted walls
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this from 3M in exchange for an honest review and it came just in time. I haven't had time to get curtains yet and it's very cold (20 degrees F) and I need to cover my windows. The room is newly painted so I'm using the tape to help secure pillow cases to windows until I can figure out what kind of window treatments I want. The tape is very thin (it's actually see through) but very sticky. It holds well, but I'm not sure it will hold up with the temperature like other 3M products.

                      We used this tape on our brand new cabinets. It took some of the finish off when I went to remove the tape after the paint was dry to the touch.

                          Was Not Impressed
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was sent this as a free roll to try and luckily I had some furniture that I was wanting to paint. I used the tape to tape off the area I wanted to paint. Part of the desk was stained and part I wanted to paint. I had laid down my first strip of tape and when I pulled the tape off to re position it, I noticed that the stain was on the tape. The stain is over a year old, so it wasn't like I did it a couple of days ago. It made me nervous and I switched back to the other tape I use. I thought if it pulled this up in just a quick second or two, I cannot imagine what it would pull up is stuck there for a day or two.

                            I do custom prop painting that requires a tape that covers fine lines but yet doesnt cause patterns, leave residue, or pull off existing paint. This is the best masking tape for short term paint and repaint.

                              Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are sorry to hear of the trouble. There are several cleaning options (test first in discrete area): a citrus-based cleaner, a hydrocarbon solvent or turpentine, or a toluene-based adhesive cleaner. Use a cheesecloth or loose nap fabric rags to allow adhesive residue to embed into the fabric. After using cleaners, rinse surface with large amounts of clean water. If the adhesive is highly cured, scraping may be required to break up the adhesive to remove it. We would like to gather more details about your experience.

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We use this tape recently on a fresh wood floor finish that we had to recoat one bad area. We used it along with the 3m plastic to crate a barrier on the floor where we were pulling the new finish. It was very gentle and left no residue It pulled off very easy.

                                    I bought this product because of its reputation. I put the tape all around my windows, door frames and the ceiling. When I pulled off the tape two days later, some of the tape came off in pieces and the tape pulled the paint off of the ceiling. The ceiling paint was only about five years old. I am very disappointed in this product.

                                      It's a good product, but I still prefer the Original version instead. As with any type of blue tape, the trick to getting really sharp edges is that you have rub it down and press it down with your fingers well. If you don't take the time to press it down well, then there is a chance the paint can seep under it.

                                      I could not be more dissatisfied with this tape. After spending thousands of dollars, months of my time, and almost two hundred on paint alone, this tape single-handedly made my project look terrible. Some sections of it worked great, and left a crisp edge, but its the sections that did not work that made it terrible. It bled through, pealed up existing paint, and would break off into multiple pieces while trying to remove. Even though I used a utility knife to trim along the edge to allow a seamless removal, this tape pealed up paint, primer, and even got down to the drywall in some sections. After being on the wall only a few hours, it was stickier than any other tape. Now I will have to spend another $200 and repaint the whole room again, thanks to ScotchBlue "Delicate" surface Painter's tape. At least this time I paint I will be smarter and use a different brand of tape.

                                        Sticks just enough to peel paint off delicate surfaces, but not enough to stop the paint from bleeding through under the edge. This tape feels like wax paper and sticks as well as a post-it note.

                                        Disaster!
                                        I always buy cheap painter's tape at the dollar store but this one time I needed the tape to work perfectly. While it's always a big risk to use tape on a painted surface, I was fooled by the 'delicate surface' description. I ended up ruining my project with this expensive tape. The adhesive is too strong!

                                        Don't even bother!
                                        You'll end up with bleed through if you've got any texture at all on your wall. Edge-lock is anything but that! Now I have another project- touching up my other paint where I had bleed through after my accent wall was complete.
