5 Feb, 2020 hitekadmin

When searching for an effective paint masking product, there are certain qualities you should look for. This is to confirm you get a high quality, even finish when painting your product of choice. We stock a range of valuable paint masking products at Hi-Tek Products, including paint masking dots and tape, to help you create the finish you desire. Here are our top qualities worth searching for in products for paint masking:


Ability to withstand high temperatures

A good paint masking product should be able to resist high temperatures. Especially when using paint in industries such as automotive, it is important that masking tape or dots will hold its structure when exposed to extreme heat. This is to ensure you maintain a clean cut finish. If you need tape for a hot product or process, view our range of high temperature masking tapes.

Seamless removal

It is important that paint masking products do not leave any residue that may tarnish your product. Leftover residue can negatively impact the appearance of your finished product, especially as it can be a tricky job to delicately remove.

Clean and effortless tearing

Paint masking tape should be easy to tear. Not only does this save time, but it also provides a much neater finish. A good masking tape will tear easily in clean lines, rather than pulling to create a jagged, messy edge.


For easy application, a good paint masking product should be flexible with the ability to adhere to any surface contours. When working with products with bends and curves, it is important that masking dots or tape do not lift or tear. This helps achieve a completely smooth, even finish.
