3M Scotch 226 Solvent Resistant Masking Tape is a black polyethylene film reinforced with a saturated crepe paper used for outdoor masking applications as well as hot air leveling of printed circuit boards. Other uses include sealing, holding, bundling, reinforcing, identifying, tabbing, wrapping, paint masking, splicing and protecting. The polyethylene backing is resistant to many solvents, water solutions and emulsions and paint strippers of both the wax-base type and the mild caustic solution solvent-emulsion type. The tape offers several features and benefits such as its heavy thickness crepe paper backing is good for paint lines; its natural rubber adhesive offers good instant adhesion; and it is an easy tear, pressure sensitive tape which is conformable. It also offers clean removal properties on most opaque surfaces for up to three months of outdoor exposure and its saturated crepe paper layer reinforces the tape to control stretch. Industries the tape can be used in include transportation, aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle, RV, bus, truck, ship yards, military, metal working, furniture, electronics, solar, trailer manufacturing and woodworking.
