The result: Very sharp paint lines!On which surfaces can I apply FrogTape® Multi-Surface?FrogTape® Multi-Surface can be used on cured painted walls and trim, glass, metal and more.If using masking tape on wallpaper, we recommend FrogTape® Delicate Surface Masking Tape.What is the difference between dry time and cured time?FrogTape® Multi-Surface should only be applied to cured surfaces. In relation to paint, "cured" does not mean the same thing as "dry". The curing of paint takes place on a chemical level and is not just the evaporation of liquid from the paint. A cured paint will be a solid state throughout, no just dry to the touch. An emulsion paint may feel dry within hours after painting but factors such as humidity, paint colour, and the number of coats will impact how long it takes it to actually cure, sometimes up to a few weeks. Most of the curing process usually occurs within 3 days but we recommend testing FrogTape® Multi-Surface in an inconspicuous area if you have concerns about your paint being cured.How long can I leave the tape on my surface before I start painting?FrogTape® Multi-Surface can be applied up to 21 days before you paint.It is UV resistant and can be applied up to 7 days if in direct sunlight.Why is FrogTape® not sticking to my surface?This can be due to the surface being dusty or due to humidity levels in your room.This Frog Tape is a unique Painters Masking Tape for Multi surfaces. Designed for use on cured painted walls, wood trim, metal and glass. Before painting you can leave in place for up to 21 days if not in direct sunlight. But once painted we would advise to remove immediately (as you would for any masking tape). The results will amaze you - giving you the sharpest lines possible. This is down to Frog Tapes uniqueness in that it is the only masking tape with Paintblock Technology. The super absorbent polymer reacts with the moisture in the paint to create a microbarrier - the result a professional straight line every time. The sharpest lines possible, making touch ups a thing of the past. It will save you time and money.

Preparation and Usage
How should I apply FrogTape®?Step 1: Clean and dry the surface.Step 2: Apply FrogTape® in small sections. Do no stretch the tape.Step 3: Use a flat tool to secure FrogTape to the surface.When and how should I remove FrogTape?Remove immediately after painting. Do not wait for the paint to dry completely. Leaning masking tape in place for too long may make it difficult to remove and my cause damage to the surface. If paint is dry, gently score the edges of the tape with a razor before removing. Remove slowly, folding the tape almost all the way onto itself.If the tape begins to lift or pull off the surface underneath, this probably means you have masked on a poorly bonded surface. Try using a hair dryer.Heat softens the tape's adhesive.My surface is textured - How should I use FrogTape®?Textured surfaces require specialised techniques for sealing the tape to help achieve a clean line.We recommend you test before use.Step 1: Apply tape on wall adjacent to the one you will be painting.Step 2: Firmly secure the tape by pushing it down with your fingers into each "nook and cranny".Step 3: Secure the tape by pressing it down with a flat tool.Step 4: Using the original colour of the wall adjacent to the one to be painted, apply a very thin coat of paint along the edge of the tape. This will activate PaintBlock and will seal the edge of the tape.Let the paint dry to the touch.Step 5: Using the colour you want to paint your accent wall with, apply a coat of paint along the edge tape.Step 6: Paint the rest of your wall.Step 7: Run a cutter lightly along the edge of the tape in the corner.Step 8: Remove slowly, folding the tape almost all the way onto itself.ImportantSurfaces and substrates do vary, so it is important to test before use on all surfaces, including those with texture, for complete compatibility with your substrate and coating. FrogTape® was designed for use with emulsion and water based paint, the use of some solvent-based coatings may change the characters of this tape. Use only on clean, dry surfaces. Allow paint to cure (dry) for at least 3 days before applying FrogTape® Multi-Surface.Take extra care when applying FrogTape® to ceilings.
