In 1923, when Richard Drew joined 3M as an engineer, the company made only sandpaper. Drew was testing one of the 3M’s sandpapers at a local auto body ship when he noticed that workers found it difficult to make clean dividing lines on two-color paint jobs. This inspired Drew to look for a solution, despite direct orders from 3M’s president to devote his attention solely to sandpaper. Luckily, for 3M, he didn’t listen. In 1925, Drew invented the first masking tape, a 2-inch-wide tan paper with a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing. Five years later he invented Scotch cellophane tape.
