5 Days Popular Tape for Varnishing
An "old school" tape with a strong following, this green tape is sometimes mistaken for the better performing 233+. 256 Green Masking Tape is a flatback (not crepe) tape has no stretch, and doesn't lose its shape when applied over a long, continuous line. Note, however, that this limits the tape's ability to make a perfect seal where it has to curve.
256's thick carrier provides ultraviolet (UV) stability and adhesive transfer resistance up to five days from application.
This tape has been a long-time favorite with traditional varnishers.
