Topic tags/keywords: painters tape masking before gluing j-b weld glue squeeze out

I normally use 3M blue painters tape to mask off areas that I don’t want glue squeeze out to get on. This method has worked well for Titebond woodworkers glue. The other day I did the same procedure and then used J-B Weld glue and found that the tape lifted up and J-B Weld got under it.

I was wondering if there is something in J-B Weld that dissolves the adhesive that holds the tape to the wood?

I don’t know, but I’ve found the green tape to do a better job at sealing off edges.
