2480S: The Ultimate Edge Masking Tape

The 3M line of iconic Blue Painter’s Tapes including ScotchBlue™ 2090 and ScotchBlue™ 2080 has been long renowned for its durability, dependability, clean removal and sharp paint lines. Unwilling to let its masking tape lineup stagnate, 3M added its Ultimate Paint Edge series in recent years which includes the green colored 2480S masking tape that delivers comparable performance to  ScotchBlue™ 2090 and ScotchBlue™ 2080 at a significantly lower price point.

ScotchBlue™ 2090 is a crepe tape with a medium strength acrylic adhesive more specialized for extra durability and adhesion. This tape should be used with latex paints that are not ketone-based and will withstand up to 14 days in sun exposure while still allowing for residue free removal. ScotchBlue™ 2080 is a flatback tape with a comparatively lower strength acrylic adhesive to 2090 but allows for a longer period of 60 days in sun while still allowing clean removal. 2080 can be used with both solvent and latex paints that are not ketone-based.

The green colored 2480S arrives as a flatback tape with a low strength acrylic adhesive in the the vein of ScotchBlue™ 2080. Consequently 2480S retains much of the adhesion and durability experienced with 2080 and matches the 60 day window for clean removal in sunlight.  2480S also adds the ability to mask latex and solvent paint including those that are ketone-based.

Consider 2480S for your next masking project. This new offering will provide several attributes found in ScotchBlue™ 2090 or ScotchBlue™ 2080 at nearly half the price. Check to see if 2480S will accommodate your needs and start saving today!
