The 3M Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape (D.A.R.T) is designed especially for use with door jambs, hoods, or deck lids. A door jamb is one of the two ‘upright parts of a door frame used to hang the door’. The tape can be used on other parts of a vehicle that need sealing.
One of the important features of this tape is its ability to create a soft edge to prevent tape lines in the jamb areas. So if you are looking for a product that will help reduce paint lines and reduce the time to finish a project, you should pick up this efficient tape. Always clean the surface with a cleaner and a rag before using the tape. This will increase the efficiency of the foam tape.
The 3M Soft Edge Foam Masking Tape (D.A.R.T) is available in three sizes: 12, 19, and 28 mm, which makes it compatible with differently sized jambs and other parts.
