This vinyl tape is both moisture resistant and non-corrosive to help safeguard surfaces. Its flexible, conformable nature makes 3M™ Vinyl Tape 472 suitable for a variety of applications. Smooth unwind makes the tape easy to apply and its black color helps it stand out for good visibility. For best results, we recommend applying the tape to a clean, dry surface at temperatures between 60 to 80°F (16 to 27°C).

The black pigmented rubber adhesive used on our 3M™ Vinyl Tape 472 can stain some surfaces. Testing is recommended to determine suitability for the application. This heavy-duty tape resists most common solvents, but care should be taken to avoid ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and esters, found in lacquer thinners, degreasers and paint strippers which may cause the vinyl backing to swell or curl.
