When standard masking just won’t do.

Custom silicone masks are very beneficial in that they eliminate bridging, consistently create the same masking line every time, and are extremely durable and reusable. Hi-Tech provides design, engineering, and turnkey solutions for all projects and works to each client’s specifications. Our service is instrumental in many industries including automotive, underbody coatings, military, medical, aerospace, and agricultural.

CASE STUDIES

The Green Tape Killer

tape
3M invented masking tape in the mid 1920’s for use in the automotive business. Regular tape was pulling the paint off of cars that had been masked with butcher paper. Henry Ford was probably not happy. So 3M invented a gentler, easy to remove tape. It’s what house painters use today in all the various forms of tan, blue and green.

I don’t know who invented the green polyester masking tape used today in the coating industry but it’s everywhere. It seems to be the default method of masking any difficult spotface shape or irregular surface. The problem is, green tape is a one time use, piles up in the trash bin, leaves a sticky residue, never put on the same way twice and labor intensive to apply.

So what is the Green Tape Killer? On ferrous parts; stamped steel, powdered metal, iron castings and forgings, its’ custom designed silicone masks with high temperature magnets molded right into the part. Yep, we can do that.

Engineered custom magnet masks by Hi-Tech Flexible are easy on, easy off. Always consistent in shape and size and very long lasting. Want to eliminate your green tape problem? Give us a call. The Killer is always ready.

OUR CUSTOMERS

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

They are one of the first people we contact when launching new product and the level of professionalism and flexibility with very demanding timelines proves why they are the best at what they do in the industry.

Justin McMillenAssistant General Manager at The Crown Group

We have done a number of projects with Hi-Tech using their custom masking and have been pleased with the results. They are responsive, communicate well and are problem solvers. A good combination for a supplier.

Dale WasherProject Engineer at Dana Spicer

Quite frankly, we weren’t sure masking could be created for our Tier 1 customer’s product. Through collaboration with our engineering department, Hi-Tech created effective custom masking for our e-coat line that produced great results. Not only that but the masks were re-useable for many turns. “
