I have always been a engineering technology junkie....

many moons ago I worked with all the major tape manufacturers to change their bulk tape packaging from paper wrap to the "accordion" bulk shrink wrap and individual rolls shrink wrapped to better protect the tape edges (see pic)

there is a amazing amount of production machinery engineering and product materials design/testing for the different masking tapes (like the listings in that 3M link as a example) to attain specific application results "consistently" with a basically "unstable" (temp and time) finished tape product....

too bad they have to be so secretive,,,it would make a great "How It's Made" segment....
