Tapes Not Sticking To Low VOC Paints?

Home Performance contractors keep telling me that the new Low VOC (volatile organic Painter's Tape compound) paints that some builders are using is making it hard to set up a Duct Blaster® or DucTester™.  It's hard enough setting up for a duct leakage test without then having to worry if the tape is going to stay where you put it.  That's one of the attributes of Vent Caps Systems that makes them invaluable for sealing duct systems.  Once they're up, they're up.  Vent Caps™ seal air vents whether they're dripping in condensation, freshly painted, or dirty as the dickens and they make the test results reliable and reproducible.  Energy Auditors and HERS Raters both have quality assurance providers double checking test results.  Having them match not only keep the auditor or rater out of the dog house, but consistent results lend credence to the home performance industry.

Have you had trouble with the tape sticking to these new paints?  Please comment below if this has been an issue for you in the field.
