At Sydney Town Hall and Melbourne Cricket Ground, Tenacious K740 is used as a 72mm wide floor liner under cable runs before they themselves are secured to the K740 liner using 48 or 72mm gaffer cloth tape.
Tenacious K740 has been designed for industrial painting and masking applications first and foremost. By accident, it was discovered the tape was useful as a protection tape in heritage and delicate situations. Perfect for protecting surfaces during short and long term poster hanging.
As a masking tape, it can be used for stencil work on smooth surfaces as it is translucent and allows accurate cutting, weeding easily. It allows sharp well-defined edges with no bleed even using solvent-heavy paints. Can be written on with pencil, Sharpie, ballpoint pen. The finish of the rice paper does not repel paints, so when stripped away results in a clean edge.
