Our versatile 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is commonly used for marking hazards and aisles, color-coding, paint masking, decorative trim, splicing, and more. We manufacture our tape using a tough vinyl backing with rubber adhesive,making a useful tape that aperesists scrapes, wear, and weathering for long lasting use.
Applies instantly and is ready to use immediately with no mess or drying time
Vivid color is locked into the vinyl for permanent high visibility
Ideal for masking, wrapping or sealing curved or irregular surfaces
Resists abrasion and most common solvents for long service life
This tape maintains vivid color throughout, even when exposed to abrasion and solvents. It sticks on contact to a wide variety of surfaces for fast application with no dripping, drying, or cleanup necessary, and removes cleanly, leaving no sticky residue. 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is highly conformable, making it easy to apply to curved areas as well as rough or uneven surfaces and is available in a range of distinctive colors.
Vinyl tapes are used to clearly mark lanes, corridors and hazardous or no-go areas in factories, warehouses, and hospitals. Using vinyl tape for aisle, floor, and lane marking instead of painting eliminates the need to ventilate paint solvents and since vinyl tapes can be removed quickly and cleanly, they are also a faster, more versatile, and less costly option than painting. Our rugged tapes are also used in automotive maintenance and repair, construction, marine, commercial vehicle, and other industries.
