Deltec Masking Tape Review

By Ross Ratt

Hello!

Here’s a little Deltec Masking Tape review I’ve done for the Decorators Forum

Ok so out of the box it’s lovely looking stuff.

This is Washi rice paper instead of standard crepe paper masking tape which I’m told is the cutting edge in masking tape science.

Pros

  • Sturdy (tears easily but seems to hold together well, no split tears to the tape)
  • Easily identifiable (coloured tape as regards to properties)
  • Great stickiness (no flue residue)

Cons

  • Cost (I’ve only put this in because it’s not the cheapest, but it is cheap compared to some higher brand kit so on a par. I don’t think it would put me off.)

I started off with the extreme as I’m working outside in the sun. (Red tape)

It’s lovely and sticky, nice clean lines, it peels off well, Its tougher to peel with no fingernails but that’s because it sticks so well. No bleed through with paint slapped all over it. Left it on in the sun for a couple of days, No residue or glue left behind, and it comes off in one piece which is always a treat.

The original (Gold) performs well interior and exterior all round good stuff, much as I would expect from quality tape, can only give it an excellent review, clean lines, no bleed.

(Also, this stuff is amazing for sticking wet paint tape to recently dried walls, doesn’t damage the paint and again no residue.)

The sensitive tape (purple)

Interior only

This stuff is excellent, it’s low tack but keeps a clean edge, sensitive surfaces so fresh paint and wallpaper (haven’t had a chance to use it on wallpaper but it is lovely on fresh paint.)

Overall, it’s a bit more expensive but it is clearly top quality stuff.
