3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 is a vinyl backed tape with a rubber adhesive. It is resistant to most chemicals typically used in electroplating processes. With a conformable, abrasion resistant backing it's ideal for use with plating chemicals, electroplating nickel, electroless nickel, milling and etching in titanium and peening operations.
Excellent resistance to most chemicals used in typical electroplating operations
Resists most common solvents and works at temperatures up to 170°F/76°C
Abrasion, moisture and wear resistant to withstand rugged working conditions
Non-corrosive, flexible vinyl backing is conformable to adapt to irregular surfaces
Backing accepts marker ink and is printable in using thermal transfer processes for identification purposes
We've engineered our 3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 to withstand intense and difficult conditions associated with electroplating and anodizing processes. It's built on a vinyl backing that is non-corrosive and flexible, allowing it to conform to irregular or curved surfaces while remaining resistant to most common solvents as well as offering excellent resistance to chemicals used in electroplating. This tape will hold up while operating at temperatures of up to 170°F/76°C. In addition, the backing accepts marker ink and is printable using a thermal transfer process making customization and marking relatively easy when needed. When you're finished, the tape removes cleanly without unwanted residue.
