this stuff is the best. No adhesive transfer, no creep back. You can mask around a dime with it. And stays where you put it.

|JoAnnBortles||I love the American tapes I use. Their AM tape, Aqua mask which is blue in color is my favorite. The OM, orange Mask is great also. The Aqua mask was designed for use with waterbased paint, but I use it for working with solvent base also.|

I guess when you use any tape it becomes second nature and you learn the characteristics and when changing or using something else its a learning curve! So to you that your tape works for your methods stay with the brand you like!LOL

|TucsonJay||3M green. Sticks great, and the 1/8th inch sticks better on curves than the plastic tapes.|

Not a big user but we go through 2-3 cases a month at plant in testing and at home I go through about a case a year of the 3/4".
About 3 years ago I was at a friends body shop out of town, we were after hours drinking a beer or so and he was taping a car, I offered to help, he had 3m, fought that stuff for 20 minutes and said, you tape and I will watch, I'm a pretty good and fast taper but I could not make the stuff work and I was looking like a beginner.

American Brand automotive in 3/4 and 1 3/4...turns tight corners , and sticks outstanding and to itself well.. Probably the one off brand or unknown thing I use they say it even cost less as if that's a factor..you'll never here anything bad about it cept things like "I never heard of it "
It truly is the Cadillac of tapes...
clicky --> American Tape PG272 2" Premium American Masking Tape 1 case of 24 - American Brand Masking Tape
The others including 3M's best, don't stick well, bleed under, lift at the wrong time, can't turn as tight a corner without ripping, harder to remove if left in sun or booth and go through a coulple heatcycles.. don't stick well to themselves and cost as if that's a factor..
