The thickness of the masking tape is usually 0.17mm, and there are wrinkles on the side of the uncoated adhesive layer.

The thickness of washi tape is usually 0.08mm, the uncoated adhesive layer is smooth and flat at one time, the substrate is translucent and thin as cicada wings, the tape has poor tensile strength, but it is light, soft and compliant, and is easy to use on some substrate surfaces that require fine masking more.
