I have been using this tape with various makes of paints for a year in our new build house. I have never had a problem with it pulling off surfaces. I only wish I’d had it to help with previous projects. It’s a great product.

Unlike other reviewers I have never had a problem with this taking existing paint off, and I’ve even used it on wallpaper with success. I don’t leave it too long after applying the second coat of emulsion and pull it off slowly at a 45 degree angle. Results in nice straight lines.
Amazing tape as long as you prep

I read the instructions, done the prep work and got amazing results. Can't understand why so many bad reviews. Probably applied to a badly prepped surface.
Really good product

Absolutely brilliant product when used correctly which needs to include preparation and using good quality paint that you are masking over the top of.Ensure loose paint is always removed and no overlaying of paint is present prior to masking over. Use the correct width of tape based on any over painting that you may do(steady hand for borrow tape) I have used on both emulation for walls and water based dulux paint for wood and no paint has been removed when pulling tape off. Best to pull tape at 45 degrees in the direction you are pulling and if needed pre score along the line lightly either a not too sharp knife.Pull the tape relatively slowly (your not waxing your legs) and I use the tape again the opposite side for other tasks during the same job ie skirting board/ laminate masking.
All in all really good product when used correctly, wished it was a subtle years ago when I first started DIY
Causes more work than it saves

Only suitable for very strong surfaces. Used it on the ceiling in a new house and it pulled off the emulsion when I removed it. Gave up using it on any painted walls or ceilings and limited my use to tiles and laminate flooring where I thought it would be safe but it pulled the surface off the edging strip on my laminate flooring which I am now having to replace.
Caused more work and cost - better to use ordinary masking tape.
