Changes deliver enhanced combination of sustainability, adhesion and clean removability
HICKORY, N.C. (April 2020) – Shurtape Technologies, LLC, a leading manufacturer and marketer of pressure-sensitive tapes, has revamped its popular Shurtape® brand CP 27® 14-Day ShurRELEASE® Blue Painter’s Tape. Now available at distributors nationwide, CP 27 features a new solventless adhesive system and a premium backing paper, which together deliver a winning combination of sustainability, adhesion and clean removability. This results in a painter’s tape with enhanced feel, flexibility and paint line performance – making it one of the best performing blue painter’s tapes in the industry.
A Leader in Performance and Quality, Reimagined
CP 27 is a premium grade, medium adhesion blue painter’s tape, trusted for years by contractors, maintenance managers and more around the country. It is primarily used for interior and exterior masking and can be safely applied to multiple surfaces, including painted walls, glass, vinyl, metal and wood.
In order to improve the sustainability and environmental impact of CP 27, Shurtape engineers removed the solvents used to process the tape’s synthetic rubber-based adhesive. They also sourced backing paper from a manufacturing partner known for its commitment to responsible forest management. Together, these critical changes make CP 27 one of the most environmentally friendly tapes on the market.
Plus, sustainability does not come at the price of performance. The advanced new adhesive formula found in CP 27 delivers excellent adhesion to prevent lifting and minimize paint bleed, while allowing the tape to remove cleanly from surfaces without damage for up to 14 days.
CP 27 also features a new fine structured crepe (FSC) paper backing. This new backing imparts a smooth, consistent feel during the application process. In addition, it makes the tape more flexible and responsive, improving the accuracy and reliability of application and delivering the paint lines expected by the industry.
“These changes are part of a proactive approach we take to tape design,” said John Sullivan, product manager, paint and masking tapes, for Shurtape Technologies, LLC. “As paint formulas change, we take measures to ensure our products continue to provide the performance customers have come to expect, while maintaining sustainable manufacturing processes.”
The revamped CP 27 is available in a range of standard widths, including 18mm, 24mm, 36mm, 48mm and 72mm. Find more information about CP 27® 14-Day ShurRELEASE® Blue Painter’s Tape at Shurtape.com/products/CP-027. To learn more about Shurtape brand, visit Shurtape.com.
