3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is a conformable colored tape constructed with a vinyl backing and a rubber adhesive. It is ideal for a variety of marking, coding and general purpose applications. This tape is designed to resist wear, scrapes and weathering for long-lasting performance. 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is available in 9 distinctive colors, and transparent.
Maintains vivid color even when exposed to heavy abrasion and solvents
Conformable with dead stretch properties that make it ideal for use on curved and irregular surfaces
Rubber adhesive provides good adhesion to a variety of materials
Clean removal from many surfaces which helps reduce clean-up and labor costs
Good solvent resistance for application protection and longer product life
Conforms to Irregular Surfaces, Removes Cleanly
Our 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is designed to conform to an irregular, curved and convex surfaces. Combined with dead stretch properties, this tape performs well in taping, wrapping and sealing applications. The rubber adhesive provides good adhesion and excellent holding strength on many surfaces. The combination of the backing and adhesive properties help to prevent edge lifting, keeping the tape in place. Once finished, the tape removes cleanly from most surfaces to help reduce clean-up and labor costs. Conformability, instant adhesion and clean removal also make 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 a fine choice for general purpose paint masking purposes and decorating.
Lane and safety marking applications
Corrosion sensitive applications
Canister and storage container sealing
Bundling and reinforcing
Temporary surface protection
Bright Colors in Difficult Applications
3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 features high abrasion resistance. This tape excels in lane marking and coding applications as it maintains its color when exposed to abrasion, wear and solvents. These features, combined with easy removal properties, often makes 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 a faster, more versatile and less costly option than painting. Using tape for lane marking instead of painting also eliminates the need to ventilate paint solvents from an open area. Because 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 has low leachable halogens and sulfur they can be used in corrosion sensitive applications like those found in the nuclear and stainless steel industries.
