Product Description

Think tough and think straight when you think Scotch 2460 Ultimate Paint Edge Masking Tape. This ultra-thin, ultra-smooth tape is ideal for creating the long, straight, smooth paint lines you need for the highest quality finished products. It features unique acrylic adhesive technology for good, instant adhesion that is temperature-resistant and capable of withstanding paint bake operations of up to 300°F. This adhesive also peels off cleanly, without leaving residue. The ultra-thin backing of this masking tape produces a low paint ridge for sharp and smooth paint lines, yet is strong enough to pull through paint and caulk without ripping.

The adhesive of Scotch Ultimate Paint Edge Masking Tape 2460 maintains good holding power that resists lifting and curling. This tape is also resistant to solvent and moisture, preventing paint bleedthrough. In addition, the thin, yet strong, smooth flat-back paper is easily torn by hand. Paint anchors well to this tape backing, reducing possibility of paint flaking debris, and the translucent backing aids in seeing when the tape has been properly rubbed down to give the best paint lines. This tape easily unwinds from the roll and uses a water-based adhesive, ideal for customers seeking out environmentally preferable solutions.

Used across many industries and applications including identification and color coding, holding, masking of straight lines from latex or solvent based paints, or protecting various items during painting and construction. A brand of 3M.

Features & Benefits

  • Acrylic adhesive offers good, instant adhesion.
  • Temperature-resistant, capable of withstanding paint bake operations of up to 300°F.
  • Peels off cleanly, without leaving adhesive residue.
  • Ultra-thin backing provides a low paint ridge for sharp, smooth paint lines.

Country of Origin: Japan.

Application Instructions

TAPE APPLICATION TIPS: For ideal paint results make sure the surface is clean, dry and dust-free so that the tape sticks properly. Next, apply the tape onto the surface while pressing down firmly as you go. And lastly, let the tape set for about 30 to 60 minutes before painting.
TAPE REMOVAL TIPS: Wait until the paint is dry to the touch before removing the tape. Lift it up by slowly pulling it back on itself, then removing at a 45-degree angle.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

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
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
