INTRODUCTION:-

I am the owner of JOSEPH ELWICK PAINTING & DECORATING, which is a small business based in greater Manchester covering greater mancheaster and surrounding areas. I am also a keen vlogger and you will find me @Joeprodecor on youtube.

I have been kindly asked to try out a free sample of Tesa Precision masking tape(commonly known as tesa yellow) and to give an honest review based on my experiences, which I will do as follows. The tape was tested on site using a couple of different methods as follows:-

· Taping the tops of skirting boards on a job in which I was asked to paint the walls only, to achieve a crisp line whilst protecting the skirting boards from paint splatter.

· Taping wooden flooring on a job I was asked to paint the skirting boards only, to achieve a crisp line at the bottom of the skirting boards whilst protecting the flooring from paint splatter and brush marks(please see video below)

First impressions of the Tesa Precision:-

The tape itself I would describe as a medium tack, general purpose precision masking tape, and it feels like a premium product when using. The tape is made of a type of rice paper which is very strong considering the thickness and is comparible to other leading brands. The tape was easily manipulated into position on both scenarios it was used in, and it adhered to the surface without issues as expected for a premium tape.

Results:-

With Tesa claiming that this tape can be left outside for up to 8 weeks, and left stuck internally for months without issues, I was obviously expecting great results after 1 day, and I was not disappointed as on removing the tape…I was left with a very crisp line with no bleed and no noticeable glue residue, I did not expect anything else from this premium product.

Conclusion:-

Tesa yellow masking tape is a quality product from a leading brand in masking tapes as a whole and it performs as it should for the price you pay. I would definitely recommend this tape, and other tesa tapes(especially the tesa pink-sensative) based on performance, but it is not widely available over the

counter nor the best value, as there are a couple of other brands of precision tape that are slightly cheaper for a comparible quality, so I think it is a case of which ever one is more easily accessible.

 

That was my Tesa Precision masking tape review, I hope you found it useful. For more information check out their website. Or head over to the Decorators Forum
