Nitto Masking Tapes

Masking tape is a pressure-sensitive tape that is easy to adhere to and remove. Masking tape is used during painting to "mask" off areas that shouldn't be painted. It's designed to be easily removed without leaving any residue or damage to the surface it's been applied to.

Masking tapes are among Nitto's most popular products. Nitto masking tapes have a wide range of applications, including:

  • Painting and sealing
  • Paint baking in automobiles
  • Curing
  • ELEP masking for printed circuit boards
  • Heat-resistant plating masking

Nitto masking tapes are available in various widths and thicknesses and have been formulated to stick to rough and curved surfaces. Nitto uses rubber, silicone, and synthetic rubber adhesives.

In addition to masking tapes, Nitto provides a vast array of industrial tapes and adhesive products, including anti-corrosion tapes, cargo liner tapes, double-sided tapes, tapes for electronics, tapes for semiconductors, foam-based tapes, and surface protective films. 

Surface protective films are widely used in various industries, including entertainment, to enhance the longevity of electronic and optical equipment. In the aerospace sector, they are often used to shield specific aircraft parts from the detrimental effects of dust and debris.

Permacel is a division of Nitto based in the U.S. They produce more than 300 types of valuable tape in various applications.
