3. Masking Paper

Mask off the surfaces of the boat with Trimaco’s Easy Mask® Masking Paper. Surface protection paper prevents overspray and can be easily used with most hand maskers. Trimaco offers a variety of options, depending on your jobsite needs.

  • Poly-Gold Plastic Coated Masking Paper: Designed to resist water-born cleaners, primers and paints. Gold Masking Paper is ideal for wet sanding projects
  • White Masking Paper: Chemically treated to prevent solvent primer and paint bleed through. White Masking Paper is great for wet sanding, priming and finishing vessel paint jobs.
  • Green Masking Paper: Ideal for priming and everyday jobs, Trimaco’s Green Masking Paper provides dependable bleed through protection.

4. Easy Mask® Premium Masking Film

Similar to masking off your surfaces with masking paper, also consider using Masking Film! Why choose masking film over paper? Premium masking film can easily conform to corners or rounded edges, is leak resistant and allows light into the vessel or ship.

Trimaco’s Premium Masking Film attracts overspray and clings to surfaces, keeping the masking film in place during the painting process. To use, simply load into a hand masker with blue painter’s tape. Make sure to apply pressure to the tape to ensure it is sticking to the masking film before masking surfaces.

Trimaco’s Premium Masking Film is available in various sizes, perfect for any size boat, or jobsite.
