Paint Barrier

This reusable painters tape is not like the typical (often ineffective) kind. The edges are lined with a gel polyurethane adhesive that gets into the micro-grooves on surfaces, preventing paint from bleeding and seeping. The result is a sharp, smooth paint line. Choose the tape that works best for the job—Specialty Surface for unfinished, primed, or matte surfaces, or Multi-Surface for glossy or eggshell finishes, or anything that’s being re-painted.

  • Use: Make certain that surface is clean of dirt and dust prior to application. Always test in a hidden area first. For more details, please see user manual
  • Press down firmly and consistently on the edge for complete adhesion (or use a roller). Pull tape within 12 hours
  • Please note: The types of tape relate to the surface you are painting on, not the type of paint you are using
  • Specialty Surfaces (Primed/Flat/Delicate):Recommended for unfinished, primed, matte, and easily damaged high-energy surfaces. Also works well on stained woodwork, steel, glass, countertops, and other delicate surfaces
  • Multi-Surface (Eggshell/Satin/Semi-Gloss): Recommended for eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss low-energy surfaces. Also works on woodwork, concrete, and glossy surfaces
  • Ideal uses include: Between walls and ceilings, along wood trim, chair rails, or baseboards, around glass on doors or windows, or anywhere two colors meet
  • Features unique, polyurethane gel
  • Prevents paint bleeding
  • Reusable

Polyurethane gel/bead on the edges of masking paper



Dave Gruenwald created his own reusable painters tape after an epic struggle to paint his den. The dark red paint he used bled and seeped onto the white ceiling, and no matter what type of tape he used—and he tried just about all of them—he couldn’t get a clean line. Leaning on his engineering background, he came up with ‘SnotTape. What’s special about this Made in the USA tape is the gel polyurethane adhesive that lines both edges. It acts almost like a putty, filling in micro-grooves and gaps (that you probably can’t even see) on surfaces, preventing paint from sneakily seeping in. The result is a clean, crisp line. The gel also makes the tape flexible, so it’s easy to reposition and reuse. It works on many surfaces, from walls to furniture to bricks, and there are different tapes to best suit your project. Thanks to Dave’s struggle, the rest of us can paint sharp lines with less hassle.
