I've been a Pro boat painter and varnisher for many years. Used 3M Blue tape for most of the years. It seems that the Blue is getting worse and worse. It leaves behind the adhesive and the requires extra work in detailing the boat. It is especially true on gel-coat and on sanded surfaces. If it is not detailed very thoroughly and carefully the dust and dirt will stick to the adhesive causing nasty looking tape width dark lines and irate calls from yacht owners. The extra time to detail is really a pain and unneeded extra expense for the owners or myself if it is a flat rate job. I'll be finding a new tape to use.

One of our two most used painter's tapes

By iPAINT

from Slovakia

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

We use our "orange" Scotch Blue Painters Tape for Delicate Surfaces on everyday basis for all our interior painting jobs, especially for our IdeaPaint installations to cut the ceilings, corners, edges, doorframes etc. Simply said: Everywhere we want to achieve the low to medium tape's adhesion.

took off the paint1

By marciemd

from Undisclosed

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

I bought ScotchBlue Painters tape for freshly painted walls. I waited until the paint was thoroughly dry before using it, but upon removal, it also removed the paint. I then had to touch up all of the paint the it removed. That defeated the purpose of using the tape to avoid having to touch up, right?

Doesn't work

By ktlulu

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

This product does not work.  I painted stripes on my son's bedroom wall several years ago with standard blue painter's tape and it came out perfect (blue & red picture).  He is moving to a new room and I wanted to replicate it without the red stripe and decided to upgrade to Edge Lock tape this time (blue & grey picture) -- it came out terrible!  Think I need to paint over it-- what a waste!!

3M 2080EL

By semi pro

from Clackamas, OR, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

Used the 3M 2080 tape with edge lock, didn't work so well. Very disappointed to pay a premium price for what is supposed to be their best tape with very sub-par results. Application was on a rounded corner on a wall with 48 hour old newly applied Behr Marquee paint. First noticed it didn't seem to stick very well so used their technique of brushing it with a dry paint brush after rubbing my fingers along the entire edge. Removed tape after approx. 24 hours after painting, not only did it bleed but it also lifted off the new paint.

HORRIBLE

By Abby

from Warwick, RI, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

I used it in my newly re done mudroom to paint the trim, excited to finally be finished I remove the tape and it ruined the paint on the wall I did a week before. Then I used it again on a furniture project and there's not even a straight line, edge lock does not work, look at that paint under the tape.... Ruined my wall and my furniture

Dont use

By Phil

from GA, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

I put this tape around the base boards on the floor, after just installing a new hardwood floor in my living room. Not only did the paint bleed through but the tape also peeled the paint right off the crown molding I had installed. I will never buy or use this product again.

3D printing!

By JimmyD

from New Mexico, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

This is a very good tape to use with 3D printing. It has no texture and the tape is smooth giving good results when printing on it. Just add a little Elmers disappearing purple glue to the tape on a heated bed and your prints will work like magic!

No more tape with partial adhesive strip

By Mike Rue

from Kenosha, WI

Comments about 3M Scotch 2080 Blue Painter's Tape:

I have always used the conventional painters tape that had approx. 1/2 inch adhesive and 1.5 inches of paper protector and often required 2 people to install it. The adhesive is lackluster. This tape (2080EL) went one with adhesive holding power so you do not need two people to tape (one to hold one end while the other positions the other end). The tape pulled off easily as well.
