EUROPE'S FAVORITE TAPE FOR 3D PRINTING!
We've searched around the globe to find the best tape for printing with PLA and we found it in Italy. Sicad S.p.A has been creating adhesive tapes for over 40 years and their products are well known all across Europe, especially in the automotive industry.
After reading some great reviews we ordered a few rolls to test ourselves and we can safely say we'll never use another tape again. This tape is superior to other brands currently marketed for 3D Printing in the U.S.
Each roll of Eurocel Masking Tape contains 50 meters (55 yards) of blue UV resistant waterproof paper backed with an acrylic water based adhesive. A heated bed is not required when printing on this tape and although the tape is not technically temperature resistant, we have found that it performs very well at 50-60°C (120-140 Fahrenheit).
PRINT ADHESION & REUSING TAPE
PLA print adhesion to this tape is superb, yet you'll be able to remove the print with minimal effort.
Common belief is that re-taping the bed after each print is required with blue painter's tape. Not any longer! Eurocel masking tape can be used multiple times, making it one of the most cost-efficient bed coverings available.
Tip: Sometimes when you pull a print off that is sticking quite well, small airbubbles might form under the tape. But you can usually smooth these out pretty quickly and your bed is ready to print again with the same layer of Eurocel Blue Masking Tape. You can even get rid of more persistent bubbles if you have a heated bed. Simply heat the bed up to around 55°C. This will cause the tape to soften and shrink ever so slightly, magically removing any bubbles for a flat print surface.
