I've been looking for a fast and low cost way to permanently mark PVC pipe. It must survive the harsh UV rays here in Arizona. Marking with label makers barely last a year. "Permanent marker" might last two years. Yet that damn Purple Primer used when cementing the pipes together never goes away. Ah ha! Why not use this stuff to mark the pipe!

Nice Idea Rick. Might try some of that Frog Tape. Most of the local big boxes have it. Used it recently and have to say it works better than the 3m for thinned coatings. Not sure but the esters in the Primer may be getting to the adhesive on the tape.
Rick and PJs,
I use Stucco Tape for some of the tough masking applications and it might hold up to the Purple Prime solvent effect (that is why the purple stuff sticks so well due to etching into the PVC surface). Thanks for tip on Frog Tape. I have been using a higher quality painters tape from 3M called 3M Yellow masking tape. It works great with high solvent content paints and enamels.
Thanks Paul for the tip on the Yellow Tape. Haven't seen it before at the store...but saw amazon has it.
I am wondering if you couldn't simply have heavy vinyl stencils made with a wide enough border to prevent the brush from marking outside the box so to speak.
If they were thick enough to retain their shape when removed they could be reused several times just reapply a little 3m vinyl adhesive when needed
Just a thought.
Never try to tell me it can't be done
