Product Description

Nitto P-703 High Temperature Masking Tape, a high-quality crepe paper masking tape, is designed for paint masking applications in high temperatures. Nitto P-703 (previously known as Permacel P-703) is commonly used for general purpose masking in addition to splicing and holding. It is especially useful with hard-to-hold surfaces like chemically treated fabric. This Nitto tape is resistant to alkyd and acrylic paint solvents, with fair resistance to highly active polyurethane paint solvents and ketones.

Nitto P-703 can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 degrees Celsius) for up to 1.5 hours without mass transfer or slivering when removed. It supports Kraft masking paint drapes at baking temperature.

Features & Benefits

  • Good high baking temperature properties.
  • Coated with natural rubber adhesive for high temperature paint masking.
  • Resistant to solvents and stains.
  • No odor.
  • Ages well; long shelf life.
  • Excellent tear strength.
  • Quick-stick and high-hold characteristics.
  • Good elongation with optimal conformability around corners and on uneven surfaces.
  • Smooth and thin; prevents paint build-up along edges.
  • Doesn't highlight on appliance finishes.

Product Applications

  • Paint masking in aerospace, automotive and housing markets.
  • General purpose masking to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 degrees Celsius).
  • Can be used on rough substrates like cinder block walls in schools.
Made in the U.S.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Special Order Policies & Footnotes:

Special Order Policies

  • Special orders are non-returnable (and non-cancelable if materials have been already ordered or cut before the cancellation request was received).
  • Special order sizes often ship direct from our supplier so will not arrive together with stocked products.

Special Order Minimums

  • Minimum requirements apply because a size may be non-stock.
  • Minimum Quantities: If a particular size has a minimum item requirement, please only order that size in multiples of that minimum (e.g. if the minimum is 12, then use multiples like 12, 24, 36, etc).

QUESTION: Permacel P-703A Tape: Does it meet DMS QPL 1861 and can I get certification stating this?
ANSWER: We've only sold standard P-703 (see and have never sold their solvent-resistant P-703A product (see Can find Nitto's datasheet for that product which lists standards it meets at that link. Thank you.

User Reviews

Nitto (Permacel) P-703 High Temperature Masking Tape
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
