Paint Chipping

Hi, first time posting! Painted the trim in my bathroom, sanded and cleaned the trim first then used BIN 2 for the primer, with 2 coats of latex paint. I started to paint my rad and put tape on the dried (approx a week curing time) trim and all coats came off with the tape. I'm pretty sure the original paint is latex as it comes away with acetone. Any ideas??

Welcome to the forums!

While I've never used the BIN2, it should have adhered well to either latex or oil base enamel. Did you do any sanding first? What cleaner did you use? did you rinse it off? Denatured alcohol is used to test latex paint, acetone can dissolve/soften oil base coatings.

Not all tapes are the same, but to quote the faq from frogtape.com:

"For application to fresh paint (at least 24 hours old), we recommend you use FrogTape® Delicate Surface. FrogTape® Multi-Surface should only be applied to cured surfaces. In relation to paint, “cured” does not mean the same thing as “dry”. The curing of paint takes place on a chemical level and is not just the evaporation of liquid from the paint. A cured paint will be a solid state throughout, not just dry to the touch. A latex paint may feel dry within hours after painting but factors such as humidity, paint color, and the number of coats will impact how long it takes it to actually cure. We recommend waiting at least 3 days and testing FrogTape® Multi-Surface in an inconspicuous area if you have concerns about your paint being cured."

Short answer, your multiple coats of paint were not fully cured and/or your tape had too much adhesive for the job.

FYI, the OP never came back after posting a year and a half ago.
