Details

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

Disappointed

by

I'm sorry, this tape kept peeling out and won't stick in some areas. I've stop using it. 'SnotTape's Response: Hi Donna, We are sorry to hearorry to hear that the tape wasn't sticking in some areas. If the tape isn't sticking, the more sticky Multi-Surface is recommended for your project.More > < Less

Treated walls not so good

by

I had a rough treated wall and still had some bleed through. It is reusable, so that statement is accurate.

'Snotty'

Maybe I used it incorrectly, but It did not work very well. The direction, while good, were horribly organized!! Bits of info were scattered all over the place--some on the box, some on the direction section. I haven't tried it again since having found ALL of the directions. Will give it one last try sometime.More > < Less

Wanted it to Work

by

I wanted this tape to work. I painted the ceiling in my bathroom, and it was perfect. I used the Snot Tape to protect my white ceiling from the gray that I was painting the walls. Didn't work, it pulled off the white tape and the gray paint. No better than what you can buy at Home Depot or Lowes.

Hi Michelle, We are so sorry to hear you had a poor experience. When masking on ceiling paint, we usually recommend our less sticky Specialty Surfaces tape. If you used that tape and still had issues, please reach out to [email protected]

What’s the secret to painting in a straight line?

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.
