Safe low tack tape for lining paper on hardwood floors

Continuing the discussion from Quick drying fillers:

I have a top spec kitchen to paint all the skirtings and doors. Already done some work before for customer. I have advised for the edges to use lining paper taped down. What will the best low tack tape be for that. Cheers :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi folks whats the best low tack tape to use on laminate flooring with lining paper.Last year pulled a little bit of material of floor with a low tack tape how can you avoid this from happening.When taping i try to use as little tape as needed and overlap on lining paper.

If you put tape direct to the laminate floor and walk over it for any period of time it tends to bond more than expected.

Otherwise, in my experience, a laminate should take a mid tack tape like the blue 2090 without any repercussions for a good few days.

In general, the less tack the better but try and decide the right tack by trying and testing a small area before going for the whole floor.
