Foam masking tape typically consists of an adhesive with a foam strip. They’re often easy to adjust if needs be, and suitable for panel apertures.

Foam masking tapes are typically used to mask door apertures, preventing overspray into the jambs of doors, boots and bonnets. This helps to eliminate hard paint lines at the aperture.

As there is no backing on any of our foam tapes, you can simply begin applying it inside the aperture. For example, when masking off the inside of the door or the jambs, you should open these and begin to apply the tape to either the body or the inside of the moving part, dependent on which foam tape you’re using. The door can be closed once you’ve pressed the adhesive down firmly. It’s also important to check that the foam is visible before painting to ensure that the surface is well-protected.

Foam masking tapes are most often used in car apertures. This includes the door jambs and seals, bonnet seals, and boot seals. Foam masking tapes can also be applied to A, B and C- post gaps to prevent paint from making contact in these areas.

Although our foam tapes are strong and won’t move during the painting and priming process, they are typically medium-tack. For high-tack tape solutions, see our mounting tapes or masking tapes.

Many of our foam tapes are temperature resistant up to around 90°C/194°F and can be used in most low-bake ovens without an issue. However, foam masking tapes shouldn’t be used in high-bake ovens because they weren’t designed for this purpose.

Many of our JTAPE foam tapes can simply be removed by stretching and pulling them away from the surface they’re attached to. Start at one end of the foam tape piece and pull it away at a slight angle to get a clean removal with no leftover residue on the car.
