Construction tape features and applications

During construction work and painting, liquids often get spilled on other surfaces like flooring, walls and furniture. These liquids will discolor the surface, and removing the liquid is time consuming. After the spilled liquid solidifies, removing it is difficult and may also damage the other surfaces. Repainting the damaged surface is an additional expensive. Hence most construction companies and painters are using masking tapes to cover surfaces during construction work so that they do not get damaged. The tapes can also be used for temporary marking. Some of the different types of tape construction, their specifications, features are listed below.

This saves a significant amount of time and money for the user, since no additional cleaning of the surface is required. The tape is extremely cohesive and can be used on both hard and soft surfaces.
