Balanced four-part construction includes flexible backing that applies easily around vehicle curves and contours and patented adhesive that sticks at a touch, stays put and removes without transfer for consistently outstanding paint lines.

Tape Color: Green


  • Premium paper backing resists breaking, lifting, and edge curl for ease of use and less material waste
  • Developed to provide high conformability with clean removal and sharp paint lines
  • Superior resistance to UV, moisture, and solvents compared to other paper tapes
  • Release coating minimizes unwind force, reducing wrinkling and paint blow-by

Built for Automotive Aftermarket Work Through and Through

Auto body professionals will recognize the familiar green color of Scotch™ Performance Green Masking Tape 233+. The distinctive green paper backing helps improve visibility for more accurate edge alignment and is highly conformable – it resists breaking even around complex contours of a vehicle, making for fast application and eliminating the need to apply additional tape. But the backing is only one part of 3M's tape design, balanced specifically for superior performance in auto body paint repair and maintenance.

The specially formulated adhesive bonds instantly, reducing rework on a variety of surfaces including EPDM. The adhesive resists water and chemicals, making it ideal for use with water or solvent based paint systems with no bleed-through, edge curl or lifting. A primer layer anchors the adhesive to the backing, virtually eliminating transfer to the vehicle surface. The tape removes clean without slivering, which can reduce labor costs.

Tape also resists temperatures up to 250ºF (121ºC) for up to 30 minutes, making it suitable for longer baking cycles. All of this is built into a very low-profile tape which won’t leave high edges that require extra buffing or rework.

Special Backsize Treatment for Outstanding Results

3M adds a release coating to the backing of Scotch™ Performance Green Masking Tape 233+ that gives it superior control during unwinding. This means that the tape is much less likely to wrinkle or pull away from the masking paper when used with a paper apron masker, even if the apron is pulled aggressively. This makes for a more accurate mask and eliminates paint blow-by.

Packaged to Help Make Your Shop More Profitable

Even the way 3M packagesScotch™ Performance Green Masking Tape 233+ helps save money and add value to auto body operations. Each 55-meter roll contains about 5 more inches of tape than lower-priced brands. Since 3M's tape resists slivering, there’s no need for the tab at the start of the roll which makes the tape usable from the very start. And include a coating on the inner core of the roll that releases the last wrap – commonly about 10 inches of tape that is unusable on lower-priced brands. The result is about 15 inches more tape per roll, or about 60 more feet of usable tape per case.

Decades of Science in Every Roll

The consistently sharp, uniform paint lines you get from Scotch™ Performance Masking Tape 233+ are the result of scientific development that began when 3M invented masking tape in 1925. Every layer of tape – the backing, the primer, the adhesive and the backing saturant – has been carefully designed and developed for superior performance in auto body aftermarket applications.

For over a century, 3M® has improved the daily lives of people around the world. From medical dressings that help wounds heal faster, and reflective materials that make roadways safer to helping OEMs improve fuel economy with lightweight solutions, and auto body specialists revolutionize the painting process, 3M touches virtually every part of your life, making the impossible possible. It provides corporate operations in 70 countries across the globe, creating technologies and products that advance every company, enhance every home and improve every life.
