4. Automotive Masking Paper

Before starting a paint body job, painters should use Automotive Masking Paper to protect portions of the vehicle, like windows, tires, or mirrors. Masking paper ensures a concise paint job. Additionally, it prevents paint overspray and spills in unwanted areas of the vehicle.

Trimaco offers the following masking paper options to best suit your painting needs, especially when wet sanding, priming, and finishing your vehicle:
– Poly-Gold Plastic Coated Masking Paper: High-quality masking paper with a coating that will not delaminate. Ideal for wet sanding.
– White Masking Paper: Prevents bleed-through, and is great for wet sanding, priming, and finishing.
– Poly-Blue Coated Masking Paper: Composed of newsprint paper with a laminate.
– Green Masking Paper: Ideal for priming and finishing coats (available in 30#, 35#, and 40#).

5. Heavy Duty SuperTuff® Tack Back

Heavy Duty SuperTuff Tack Back gives you superior leak-resistant protection that stays where you place it. The floor protection roll consists of two layers—absorbent fiber made from a blend of post-consumer and post-industrial recycled PET and a PET film protector sheet with an aqueous pressure-sensitive adhesive.

The tacky backing allows for the protection of vertical and horizontal working surfaces, such as floors or countertops. Plus, it’s easy to use and remove from hard surfaces. This heavy-duty surface protector can stand up to forklifts and high traffic for an extended period of time, and therefore is ideal for a walk-off mat to prevent tracking paint, mud, water, or soil into the job site. Reduce messy clean-ups by protecting your job site and materials with SuperTuff Tack Back.

Available in 36″ wide by 25′, 50′, and 100′ lengths.
