Masking tape should be something which is quite familiar to all. Whether be it in home décor or arts and crafts, most of us would have used masking tape for different purposes.

It should not surprising that masking tape was developed as one of 3M’s many initial innovations. Having specialised in adhesives such as Scotch Tapes and Glue, one of the engineers at 3M, Richard Drew, noticed the problems car painters faced in painting two-tone cars, as the butcher paper used often resulted in paint-peeling. This led Richard to innovate and resulted in the development and eventual invention of the masking tape.
