  • NOT low tack, lifts paint even after cured.

    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    I thought I would give this film a try after talking with a few other artists. My surface was primed, base coated, top coated and cleared all using oil based enamel. I had a large area to mask for the next step in the process. I used a small amount of the frisket on an inconspicuous area to make sure that it would be ok. After leaving the film on the hidden area for about a minute I peeled it off without much problem. Feeling confident I covered the large area I needed masked. After about 5 minutes of having the film on the work I needed to reposition a 5 square inch area of it. When I attempted to lift the film it was extremely difficult to lift. After finally getting an edge up it ended pulling a large chunk of the cured paint off ruining the artwork. Even in 65 degree weather this stuff is extremely high tack way more so than the Scotch 233+ masking tape. Once I was done losing my mind (I had 50+ hours into the work) I experimented with different tapes trying to lift the paint off. Scotch 233+, 3M Fineline, Lowes masking tape, 3M Blue painters tape and even duct tape did not lift the paint off the work but the frisket did. All in all, this stuff is garbage. Tack increases over time and bonds tight to enamels. I immediately threw the rest of my roll in the garbage. *****UTRECHT RESPONSE***** We sincerely apologize for the issues you had with this frisket film.
