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.

  • Made in the USA: Oshkosh, WI
  • Materials: Polyurethane gel/bead on the edges of masking paper
  • 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

Great for scale modeling

When masking a line on a surface already painted it's not only important to have a clean line (Snot does that), it's vital that the removal of the mask does not remove the paint on the surface it's stuck to. This tape is gentle and leaves the finish in place. For example, I just sprayed a line of color onto a brass part that already had a coat of paint on it. The line was perfect and the tape came off leaving all the first coat intact.

For that application needing just a single line in a small space, cut the tape in half longitudinally. You use half as much tape and you can get into those small spaces.

Great Stuff.

I didn't mind spending more for this product because it WORKS!! Avoiding the bleed is so important to a clean paint job. And although I really dislike the name of the product, I will continue to buy for all my painting needs.More > < Less

This product worked great. It’s easy to use, remove and the lines were so straight! The only issue I had was that it says it’s reusable, but when I tried to reuse it (after 1 use) it didn’t stick.More > < Less

About 'SnotTape

Paint Straight

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.
