3M introduced Scotch® Greener Masking Tapes made with recycled material and renewable resources for basic and performance painting.

The new tapes are made with 56% renewable resources, including paper backing made with 30% post-consumer recycled content and adhesive made with natural, regenerating latex harvested from rubber trees, the company says.

Also, the tapes are manufactured using solvent-free and water-based processes. The tape core contains 87% post-consumer recycled fiber and the shipping cartons are made with 100% recycled fiber, the company says.

The tapes are available in two varieties: Scotch Greener Masking Tape for Basic Painting 2025 and Scotch Greener Masking Tape for Performance Painting 2050.

The basic painting tape features high adhesion and is “ideal for use on surfaces such as vinyl, carpet and wood,” the company says. The performance painting tape features a thicker backing and medium-high adhesion, making it a “good choice for woodwork, wood cabinets and trim.”

The tapes can be used towards LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification credits for green building projects, the company says.

The products are available at Walmart, Target, Sears/Kmart, Walgreens, and paint and hardware stores.
