AVON, Ohio, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- FrogTape® brand painter's tape with PaintBlock® Technology earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, one of America's most trusted consumer emblems and most recognized symbols of reliable products. The Seal also represents the Good Housekeeping consumer policy, which provides a two-year limited warranty for FrogTape. The limited warranty reflected by the Good Housekeeping Seal means that if a product bearing the seal is defective within the first two years of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace the product or refund the purchase price.

FrogTape is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock Technology. PaintBlock is 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. PaintBlock Technology allows users to create crisp, clean lines and eliminates the need for touch ups. To earn the Seal, engineers and scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI) reviewed FrogTape to ensure PaintBlock performed as promised and the tape met GHRI's standards of quality.

In addition, according to an article from the April 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping, Multi-Surface and Delicate-Surface FrogTape ranked first and second in a list of top painter's tapes. Good Housekeeping editors said FrogTape was the best of their test and was easy to handle, gave very clean lines and left no damage to their primed drywall.

FrogTape is available in a variety of widths to accommodate any application. The tape comes in a reusable plastic canister designed to protect the tape edges from damage. FrogTape can be purchased at all Walmart, Lowe's and Sherwin-Williams store locations and other fine paint and hardware retailers across the United States with a suggested retail price of $6 to $12 depending on the size of the tape.
