Masking Products

Broadly, masking products are engineered to protect. Whether temperature, chemical, or impact resistance is required, masking products provide the boundary between a base material and unwanted damage.

Powder coating, corrosive finishing processes, temperature treating, custom shipping, and storage are just a few of the environments where high performance masking can make all the difference.

Some of the popular masking products in modern industries include:

  • Bottom, top, and rectangular cross bars
  • Caps
  • Corks
  • Plugs
  • Protective rectangles, discs and squares
  • Sheeting
  • Smart bars
  • Splines
  • Tape
  • Tubing and plugs

These products are often packaged in multi-component sets for projects that require more than one type of protection.
