Selective Masking or Precision Masking is the process of protecting areas from various coatings. Masking is also called a stop-off application. If a defined area of a part’s surface is to be void of a finish, selective masking will prevent that surface from exposure, stopping it from being finished or exposed. Masking may be employed in dry and wet processes, including Powder CoatingThermoplastic Coatings, Anodizing, Chem Film, Black OxideAbrasive Blasting and other finishing processes.

Fun Fact

Masking methods fall into permanent and temporary categories. Temporary masks include waxes, tapes, paints, etc. Permanent masks are designed to conform to a specific area and are made of materials that resist chemicals so they can be used over and over. Each method has advantages and disadvantages – no one method is suitable for all stop-off operations.

Did You Know?

Selective masking may be utilized to limit anodic coatings to specific areas or to apply multiple anodic coatings over the same part. For example, an aluminum part may be type II anodized in one area and type III anodized in another.
