More about the company

Consider the surface and purpose and choose the corresponding adhesive tape for the situation.

These factors massively influence the requirements for adhesive tapes and covering materials. For painters, this means checking in advance what a particular adhesive tape is suitable for, and what it is not suitable for. “Almost right” is dangerous. An essential factor is the adhesive coating on the back!

We would be happy to advise you if you have any questions. There are many cases and factors to be considered, but there is also the perfect adhesive tape for every case!

Easily removable tape is often sufficient!


In many situations, delicate surfaces (e.g. wallpaper or surfaces with textured plaster) simply need to be protected from getting dirty. In such cases, an easily removable adhesive tape (WASHI-TEC® Wallpaper) is more than sufficient. The Washi backing flexibly conforms to the surface contours and the special adhesive guarantees problem-free removal from delicate surfaces.


Quality definitely has priority!

... and pays off.

The same applies to professional craftsmen: Adhesive tapes and coverings simply have to work well. The price of a professional adhesive tape is not the main concern. As a professional, you can’t easily go wrong using brand-name products and following the basic instructions for their use. Penny pinching is definitely not the way to go.

Careful masking and covering

Let us help!

Careful masking and covering are also an expression of respect for the customer and his property. By taking protective measures and general taking great care, one signals to the customer a professional sense of responsibility. While amateurs only provisionally mask and cover with thin films or newspaper due to lack of motivation and expertise, you plan and act as a professional and also carry out – at a reasonable price – the necessary masking work, thus effectively reducing the risk of complaints and claims!

Kip® spoke with master painter Jörg Giesen

How important is masking in his day-to-day work?

Master painter Jörg Giesen, 52, explains:
“We mainly work for private customers. Masking is naturally particularly important in these cases, and the expense and effort are correspondingly high. Customers today have very high demands for perfection, down to the last detail. As painters, we should therefore not leave behind any traces that result in dissatisfied customers – even if they only become apparent upon closer inspection.”
