masking tape from thetapeworks.comThe secret to the performance of good masking tape is a property called “creping”. A “creped” tape has minute irregular folds in the tape that allow it to be stretched as it is applied.

In order to properly apply creped tape, it must be pushed down with enough force to unfold the creping.
