FrogTape Delicate Surface Painting Tape is a low adhesion painters tape designed for use on freshly painted surfaces (greater than 24 hours old), faux finishes, primed wallboard and primed wallpaper. It will remove cleanly from most surfaces for up to 60 days. FrogTape is the only tape treated with PaintBlock technology, a super-absorbent technology that reacts with latex paint and instantly forms a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. This results in super sharp paint lines and professional results on baseboards, crown moldings, door and window frames and more. Each roll is 1.88-Inch wide and 60-Yard long. The plastic canister FrogTape comes in keeps it from being damaged (such as the edges being nicked), and keeps dirt and debris off the tape. You can also re-use the empty canister for storage of nuts and bolts, screws, or nails. It is also recyclable.
What Makes FrogTape Brand Painter's Tape Unique?

FrogTape is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock Technology. PaintBlock is a super-absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. The result: Very sharp paint lines and less time spent on touch-ups. FrogTape is also available in a convenient storage canister. The canister protects the tape edges from being nicked or damaged and keeps the tape free of dirt and debris.
No special prep work needed, other than a clean, dust free surface that is dry.
Tips For Best Results Using FrogTape
Clean the surface to be masked with a mild detergent solution. Make sure the paint surface is dust-free and dry. For accurate placement, adhere FrogTape in short sections to avoid stretching the tape. Make sure FrogTape is flush to the edge that you will be painting. Using a putty knife, or 5-in-1 tool, press the tape you laid to burnish it to the surface you are masking. Remove painting tape immediately after you are finished painting.
