Masking tape is often used to protect surfaces during machining processes, sandblasting, and manufacturing applications. Tape forms a barrier that will protect delicate surfaces from contaminants and damage. Some materials that thermal masking tape may need to protect include glass, ceramic, and metal.
Thermal masking tape comes in strip, liquid, and spray formulas. An adhesive that contains thermal properties can be used around high heat applications and flames. This type of tape is much more durable than paper or cellophane tape products.
