Choosing the Right Tape

How to Choose the Right Tape for Your Project

How to Choose the Right Tape for Your Project

Quality tape is an essential tool for many professional projects, small and large. Whether you're painting a room or creating graphics with vinyl transfers, you need to get the job done right. Choose a tape that's suited for the job — from indoor to outdoor, construction to maintenance needs and more.

Below, we'll go over the different types of tape to help you select the best for any future projects. Get answers to commonly asked questions and feel confident in your choice with these tips for what type of tape to use for your project.

Blue Painter's Tape

Blue painter's tape is the perfect type of tape to use when painting. With its clean removal adhesive, blue painter's tape will remain on your wall for the duration of your paint job and remove easily and residue-free for up to 21 days. Blue tape has the flexibility to tackle various projects and surpasses the quality of other painter's tapes on the market.

Shop Blue Painter's Tape

When to Use Blue Painter's Tape 

Job site construction, home renovation and flooring or tile installation are some of the top jobs that need blue painter's tape. Surfaces you can use blue painter's tape on include:

  • Walls
  • Trim
  • Tile
  • Hardwood floors
  • Woodwork
  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Glass

Blue painter's tape offers an ideal balance between lasting stick and clean removal for various jobs. Traditional masking tape is designed to be way stickier. As one of the stickiest types of tape, masking tape isn't suited for these applications as it could pull up the material underneath the tape when removed. Blue painter's tape is the ideal solution.

Many professional industries prefer the quality and versatility of blue painter's tape for their projects, including painting, construction, restoration, remodeling, flooring and sign making. Even retail, education and government industries have relied on blue painter's tape to complete projects and improve daily processes. 

Green Painter's Tape

Use green painter's tape to handle projects that require tape with a higher tack. Blue painter's tape is medium-tack, making it highly versatile. Sometimes, you'll encounter rough and uneven surfaces that rise above what blue tape can handle. Green painter's tape provides a high-tack solution tailored for uneven surfaces, rugged edges and outdoor areas. 

Green tape is manufactured to stay where you want it, especially on surfaces that seem to resist tapes with a lesser tack. This solution offers clean removal for 14 days after application. 

Shop Green Painter's Tape

When to Use Green Painter's Tape

Green painter's tape is better suited for rough, uneven surfaces due to its higher tack level. Like blue tape, green painter's tape is UV-resistant for effective use indoors and out.

If your project involves any of the following surfaces, you should consider green tape for quality results:

  • Rough wood
  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Stucco
  • Other exterior surfaces

Projects that require multiple layers of tape will also benefit from green painter's tape. Green tape is excellent for protecting floors with cardboard panels, too, ensuring they stay in place so you can focus on your work.

Red Stucco Tape

Protect surfaces during outdoor or indoor construction, remodeling, installation and maintenance with red stucco tape. Red stucco tape is a heavy-duty tape with reliable adhesive and high visibility. 

Red stucco tape is UV-resistant and weatherproof, so its 60-day wear time can withstand any sun and rain exposure during outdoor use. Red tape is formulated for minimum stretch and easy application.

Shop Red Stucco Tape

When to Use Red Stucco Tape

While red stucco tape is best used for stucco, it can easily apply to and remove cleanly from a range of surfaces for up to 60 days. Consider red stucco tape for various construction and installation projects where you need to protect the following surfaces:

  • Glass
  • Window frames
  • Door frames
  • Metalwork
  • Stonework
  • Brick
  • Tile

Red stucco tape serves many functions, from masking windows and doors against overspray to seaming heavy poly sheeting. Red tape is also ideal for holding, securing and bundling any pipe, conduit, rebar and other items involved in your projects.

The red color offers clear visibility to ensure you locate and remove all leftover tape at the end of a project. This quality is crucial for large jobs where you need to provide a clean, finished result — red tape makes the cleanup process quick and efficient.

Strapping Tape

Strapping tape is a general-purpose, tensilized MOPP tape ideal for bundling, color-coding, palletizing and unitizing. Most job sites use this tape to store and transport items safely. The high-strength adhesive ensures packages are protected and transit is smooth.

When to Use Strapping Tape

Tensilized polypropylene strapping tape is commonly used in warehousing, logistics and transport industries. You can use strapping tape to:

  • Secure and reinforce packages for transportation and storage.
  • Prevent boxes from shifting in transit.
  • Bundle, color-code, palletize and unitize items for shipment.

Greenhouse Tape

If your project requires durability and UV protection, greenhouse poly patch tape may be the perfect tape for the job. Greenhouse tape is an all-weather tape traditionally used for greenhouse repairs and other similar applications.
