Automotive Masking: Our Top Picks

Get Help Choosing the Right Masking Solution

We prioritise providing exceptional solutions that offer the best possible results here at JTAPE. But we also understand that it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the choices available, which is why we’re dedicated to helping professionals make informed decisions on which masking solutions are best suited to the issues being faced.

A, B and C-post gaps can be some of the trickiest areas of a vehicle to mask off due to their curved surfaces and complex shapes. But thanks to the unique properties of our Advanced Foam Masking Tape, masking car apertures can be made simple. The offset adhesive prevents paint and clear coat contact which provides a feathered finish rather than built-up hard edges. Our masking solutions also apply to the inner side of the door rather than the car body, allowing for a clean paint application.

Working around body lines or spot repairs and paintwork, it can be tricky to blend old into new without the right automotive tape. The JTAPE range of Blending Tapes can provide a smart solution for these issues and offers the right amount of flexibility to mask off small repairs and body lines. The main advantage of using these tapes for this purpose is the blended edge finish which creates a high-quality finish with ease.

Rubber seals found around car boots, windows, doors and bonnets must be protected when work is being carried out on adjacent surfaces. For high-quality rubber seal protection that doesn’t waste time or materials and keeps the vehicle sufficiently watertight and weatherproof, our Duo Masking Tape is ideal. The offset adhesive and perforated sections make for easy application, while the easy lifting tab simplifies the removal process.

Achieving sharp, crisp edges in striping and lettering doesn’t mean your paint technicians and specialists need to have steady hands – instead, they can rely on our selection of Fine Line Tapes to get the job done. Our range contains different tape widths suitable for a variety of striping and lettering jobs. We also offer varying heat and temperature-resistant Fine Line Tapes to choose from depending on the baking and curing processes used in your painting booth.

Whether you’re attaching number plates or fixing emblems and badges, the tape used for the job needs to be strong and durable for all weather conditions. We’ve developed our selection of Mounting Tapes with this in mind to give professionals peace of mind that fixtures will remain in place over long periods. From our Grey Double Sided Acrylic Tape designed to hold internal and external fixings to Number Plate Pads specially manufactured to hold number plates in place in all weather conditions, we’ve got all your mounting needs covered within our product range.

Covering and protecting larger surfaces requires robust, tear-resistant solutions that you can be confident in. Our selection of Masking Films includes high quality materials with a range of different features and properties to protect surfaces typically found in a body shop. From Corona-treated films able to hold mist and spray to breathable film with moisture-absorbent properties perfect for reducing ghost marking when masking over damp surfaces, our JTAPE Masking Films allow you to cover large surfaces with no extra thought needed.

Paint Supplier and OEM Partnerships

We believe that paint supplier and OEM partnerships are an important part of being able to produce masking supplies best suited to the needs of those within the automotive sector. Because of this, we at JTAPE have spent over two decades forming and maintaining strong bonds with all major UK paint suppliers.

Our partnerships have been instrumental in facilitating the distribution of our products to reach leading OEMs like Aston Martin, McLaren, Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls-Royce, both directly and through an ever-expanding distribution network. From this, we gain a better understanding of body shop needs and how the industry is changing so we can keep developing our products as needed.
