ShurTech Tape Wins Sherwin-Williams Innovation Award

FrogTape® brand painter's tape has been awarded the 2010 Innovation Award by Sherwin-Williams, the nation's largest paint distributor.

FrogTape was selected based on several criteria, including its patented PaintBlock®Technology. FrogTape is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock Technology, a super-absorbent polymer that reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. The end result is sharp, clean paint lines. While DIY customers get the satisfaction of achieving professional results, contractors also benefit by spending less time prepping and touching up, leaving more time to take on more jobs.

FrogTape also met the criteria for the 2010 Innovation Award because of its high and consistent product quality levels, sales and service performance, and overall marketing support.

FrogTape brand painter's tape with PaintBlock Technology is available in a range of widths to accommodate any application. The tape comes in a reusable plastic canister designed to protect the tape edges from damage for consistent results. FrogTape can be purchased at Sherwin-Williams store locations across the U.S. with a suggested retail price of $6 to $12, depending on the size of the tape.
