The key here is surface energy, which determines how well ‘SnotTape will stick to your surface. It’s hard for things to stick to a low-energy surface, and a lot easier for things to stick to a high-energy surface.
Primed, Flat or Delicate Surfaces are high-energy surfaces in which things are easier to stick. This version of ‘SnotTape requires less powerful adhesive properties. So, it’s safe for use on glass, steel and aluminum, as well as older surfaces.
Eggshell, Satin, Semi-Gloss or High-Gloss Surfaces are low-energy, hard-to-stick-to surfaces — often touted as easy-to-clean. This version of ‘SnotTape has greater adhesive properties. You can also use this product on surfaces applied with washable or low level VOC interior paints.
“Put the tape on and it kept falling of the wall it just wouldn't stick on clean wall, freshly painted. On some places it took of the paint. Was looking forward to a good job now i have to fix more than expected.”
“A tape truly unlike any other. 'Snot Tape's gel barrier will stick to just about any surface imaginable, while also providing protection from paint bleed. No other tape on the market comes close to the adhesive and bleed prevention capabilities of 'Snot Tape. A priceless item that is practical to any and every residential painter.”
“I used this on a a tub surround area with uneven tiles (the name of which escapes me at the moment) at the ceiling line and it worked out great for me. I would suggest a slow pull to remove it, because when I purposely pulled it fast to see what would happen, the adhesive came off in little"balls" in just a couple of spots and was annoying to pick off. It wasn't enough to say I won't use it again.”
“We use snot tape on a difficult exterior brick ledge. Wow, we got a razor sharp line even in the mortar joints. I see this as a very versatile product to use in the most hard to mask rough surfaces. The bead of adhesive contours very well to porous brick and textured walls. I will use it again.”
“I retract my earlier comment. Yesterday I used what was left of the roll of tape for flat paint surfaces and it performed very badly. Every few feet it pulled off not only the paint but the drywall as well. I spent 4 hours fixing this mess. Would I use this product again? No freeking way.I would not even rate this product after this disaster *Editors Note, see comment from 'Snot Tape below”
