When painting, this is our preferred product used to mask off surfaces that we want to protect from the paint that is being applied. It is competitively priced and we have never had a problem with it damaging or leaving residue on the surface we are trying to protect. We also use the wider 3" rolls to seal off areas that we do not want dust & dirt to penetrate, including door openings that have been covered with visqueen, and hardwood floors that have been covered with a heavy gauge paper. This tape keeps the dust & dirt from getting under the paper where it can scratch the finish on the floor. In this application however, the tape should be replaced every couple weeks to avoid the potential of tape residue sticking to the hardwood with heavy traffic. If any residue is left on the hardwood, it is relatively easy to get off using soapy water and a damp cloth.

This is the second time I've had a difficult time with your product, Scotch Blue Painter's Tape for Multi Surfaces #2090. I was painting my kitchen cabinets and used your tape on my kitchen walls, protecting them from the paint I was using on my cabinets. I went to pull off the tape and the paint came off the walls. One spot I could have dealt with but it happened continually leaving me with a new job of buying paint for my walls and painting my kitchen walls. I was told by several people not to leave the tape on the walls for very long. I made sure I didn't. I haven't had much luck with your product and will not recommend it to my family and friends. The completion time was doubled because of your product. I have learned after this job to cut in the trim freehand, using no tape. The only relevant evidence I had was the tape with my wall paint on it. My husband mistakenly threw it away, thinking it was garbage. I did learn by this complaint process that I should have taken pictures of the damage.

Horrible!

By debby

from Lutherville-Timonium, MD, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

We bought this tape, NOT a CHEAP tape, After outlining our walls, within 10 minutes the tape started falling off. Went back twice and pressed harder to adhere to wall. NO GOOD. Don't waste your money.

A Great Tool For Mixed Media Crafters

By cmalkah

Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

I purchased this a couple of months ago to use on my mixed media project. I like painting with chalk on glass, but did not get great results because of partially sealed edges. With the new Edge-Lockâ„¢, I no longer have that issue

    Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

    We use our "orange" Scotch Blue Painters Tape for Delicate Surfaces on everyday basis for all our interior painting jobs, especially for our IdeaPaint installations to cut the ceilings, corners, edges, doorframes etc. Simply said: Everywhere we want to achieve the low to medium tape's adhesion.

    took off the paint1

    Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

    I bought ScotchBlue Painters tape for freshly painted walls. I waited until the paint was thoroughly dry before using it, but upon removal, it also removed the paint. I then had to touch up all of the paint the it removed. That defeated the purpose of using the tape to avoid having to touch up, right?

      Doesn't work

      By ktlulu

      from Atlanta, GA, United States

      Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

      This product does not work.  I painted stripes on my son's bedroom wall several years ago with standard blue painter's tape and it came out perfect (blue & red picture).  He is moving to a new room and I wanted to replicate it without the red stripe and decided to upgrade to Edge Lock tape this time (blue & grey picture) -- it came out terrible!  Think I need to paint over it-- what a waste!!

      By semi pro

      from Clackamas, OR, United States

      Comments about 3M Scotch Blue Multi-Surface Painters Tape #2090:

      Used the 3M 2080 tape with edge lock, didn't work so well. Very disappointed to pay a premium price for what is supposed to be their best tape with very sub-par results. Application was on a rounded corner on a wall with 48 hour old newly applied Behr Marquee paint. First noticed it didn't seem to stick very well so used their technique of brushing it with a dry paint brush after rubbing my fingers along the entire edge. Removed tape after approx. 24 hours after painting, not only did it bleed but it also lifted off the new paint.
