3M 218 Fine Line Masking Tape

3M 218 Fine Line masking tape is great for paint striping. This tape stretches for smooth curves and tears easily. Not for extended outdoor use of more than one day. Finest color separation available. Paint sharp, precise lines with clean edges. Resists sticking to or pulling up new paint.

3M 218 Fine Line tape is moisture and solvent resistant. It reduces paint buildup on edges. 218 pulls up clean; leaves no residue.

This tape is used by professional teak installers as a bond break liner underneath teak deck caulking with polysulfide caulk beads. Using a bond breaker compensates for expansion and contraction between wood and caulk.

Available in Fine Line Tape in various widths, and Fine Line Paint Striping Tape with pull-out slits ideal for multi-color striping.

Comments about 3M 218 Fine Line Masking Tape:

We have used this for years - bought a new supply for a project and the adhesive on the new stuff is awesome to say the least. It lifts every finish we have put it on - including well cured several years old 2-part paint and varnish. It has caused lost weeks and time repairing the damage. We have now tested it alongside every other tape we have - including gorilla tape and none removes finish like this one.

Good lines but leaves adhesive reside

Pros

  • Good lines
  • Stretchable tape

Cons

  • Residue

Best Uses

    Comments about 3M 218 Fine Line Masking Tape:

    Used the tape to do boot stripe lines. Went on well. I really liked the slight stretch I could get. That really helped keep the tape going on slightly curved surface. No need to break tape and restart in order to keep with desired line.

    But I am extremely unhappy with this tape. It left residue on areas where it had had some sunlight. Now I have to figure out how to remove residue without damaging the stripes I worked so hard for.

    This means A LOT more work for me.

        • Detailing trim

        Comments about 3M 218 Fine Line Masking Tape:

        Used this to tape off the trim on a wooden sailboat. It performed as well or better than advertised. Clean, sharp lines when removed after both primer and enamel had been applied. Only one area where a little superficial wood pulled up. Just flexible enough for the gentle curves needed.
