what if this tape is on the wall for an extended time? Will it stain or mark the wall after 1 mon...

Are there (4 ) 4 packs in each case. Totaling 24 rolls.?

Asked by Master December 20, 2017

There are 4 rolls per case. This includes four cases. For a total of 16 rolls.

when you use the tape, after painting, how soon can u remove it?

Asked by William August 2, 2017

Hi William, Personally, I remove it right after the final coat of paint - while the paint is still wet. This is done so as to minimize pulling any paint off of the wall. Folks either swear by waiting until the paint is dry or pulling the tape while it's still wet. In any case, the rolls state to remove it within 60 days.

Is it good on trim

Asked by Panininibae28 April 26, 2017

I think this would work on trim, however, it is a bit lighter weight than some of the other tapes. You also may want a wider tape for your trim.

OK for finished wood surfaces such as hi fi speakers?

Asked by paltroon1 October 4, 2016

I wouldn’t guarantee it but it should work. Are you able to go completely around the speaker? If so for long term storage, try and reverse the tape, that is sticky side out, and wrap tight complete around Just a suggestion

Is it ok to put on wallpaper to paint molding without it taking the wallpaper down?

Asked by KimC January 23, 2016


Good for Reglazed Bath Tile??

Asked by GothamHandyWoman March 11, 2015

Yes, works well.

I need to know what the case price is on the .94mm and 1.41 3M 2080 tape. I think they come 4 sleeves to the case.

Asked by kim September 21, 2013

Each role was separate. I purchased two, and will return one. This did not work for me.

Can I use this tape on fresh paint?

Asked by Rainman February 17, 2012

Sure, why not -- it won't stick to any other surfaces for more than 3.5 minutes.

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!!

Scotch Brand
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.

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!
