MHP paper has a high wet strength and has been specifically manufactured for paint masking, is porosity tested and is tightly bonded with little or no fibre contamination. It gives excellent resistance to base coats, clear coats and urethanes. MHP paper also offers enhanced hold out to ultra-high solids and is excellent for water-based paints.
MHP use 50gsm paper for their Kraft Masking paper as in their opinion, anything thinner substantially increases the risk of bleed.
Please note that a 1 metre square of 50gsm MHP masking paper contains:
- 10% more paper than a 45gsm paper - that’s 10% more protection
- 20% more paper than a 40gsm paper - that’s 20% more protection
From our market research, competitors will charge more for a 40gsm.
