Adhesive Tapes and Professional Solutions for Painters

In the professional painter sector, painters have been replying on our high quality adhesives for many years. Since the very start, we have been in close contact with painters in order to fully understand their exact needs. We have used our close connections within the trade to develop innovative ideas and have turned adhesive tapes into an indispensable tool for professionals.

We are motivated every day, as has always been the case, to continually improve our range of adhesive tapes and develop new innovations that will make your work easier and provide all you need to get things done more efficiently.

Whether you need Kip Masking Tape, Protective Film, WASHI-TEC® or Paper Maskers, we have the right product for you.

User Tips

Consider the nature of the surface, purpose of use, and duration of use!

Consider the surface and purpose and choose the corresponding adhesive tape for the situation.

These factors massively influence the requirements for adhesive tapes and covering materials. For painters, this means checking in advance what a particular adhesive tape is suitable for, and what it is not suitable for. “Almost right” is dangerous. An essential factor is the adhesive coating on the back!

We would be happy to advise you if you have any questions. There are many cases and factors to be considered, but there is also the perfect adhesive tape for every case!

In many situations, delicate surfaces (e.g. wallpaper or surfaces with textured plaster) simply need to be protected from getting dirty. In such cases, an easily removable adhesive tape (WASHI-TEC® Wallpaper) is more than sufficient. The Washi backing flexibly conforms to the surface contours and the special adhesive guarantees problem-free removal from delicate surfaces.


Quality definitely has priority!

Quality definitely has priority!
… and pays off.

The same applies to professional craftsmen: Adhesive tapes and coverings simply have to work well. The price of a professional adhesive tape is not the main concern. As a professional, you can’t easily go wrong using brand-name products and following the basic instructions for their use.
