Ordinary painter's blue tape is generally fine when the veneer joint lines up perfectly. However, you can often come across a joint line that just needs a little extra "pull" to hold tight. I tried countless blue tapes from every manufacturer I could find to get a removable tape that has some elasticity.
One day... out of the blue (so to speak), a box arrived from someone who came through on a promise he made to me months ago and here you have it. This clean-release tape has the ideal amount of stretch and a strong memory so that it pulls back perfectly and keeps unruly joints tight.
Apply this tape to the back side of the veneer joint. Then prepare the face side with regular brown kraft veneer tape. After the brown tape has set, remove the blue tape and press your panel without worry that the joint will separate.
Size: 11/16" x 180'
Always remove the blue tape by pulling it at a low angle from the veneer face
and at 45 degrees from the seam line as shown below.
