What masking tape is everyone using for Type AR coatings?


Long story short:

We used to use the St. Gobain M797 which was also known as Humiseal's
HT-500. Due to numerous manufacturer issues, we stopped using it.

One of our customers spec'd in the blue 3m painter's tape and we have been
using it successfully for a while. 

We have some new assemblies where the 3m adhesion is terrible and am now
back onto looking for a new tape, similar to what we all went through some 8
years ago.
