3M™ Vinyl Tape 477 is a versatile, transparent vinyl tape designed to provide heavy-duty defense in areas requiring abrasion resistance and chemical resistance. The unique stretch properties enable tape to remain stretched to conform to uneven surfaces without lifting and retracting. Offering good initial adhesion and holding strength, this tape will also remove cleanly from most surfaces.
Transparent backing provides substrate visibility
Thick backing provides protection in applications requiring abrasion resistance
Unique stretch properties enable tape to remain stretched to conform to uneven surfaces without lifting and retracting
Clean removal from many surfaces which helps reduce clean-up and labor costs
Good solvent resistance for application protection and longer product life
Transparent, Abrasion Resistant Protection 3M™ Vinyl Tape 477 (PDF, 24 Kb) is a thick, transparent vinyl tape that combines clarity, conformability and durability to provide high abrasion resistance. The rubber adhesive aggressively adheres to a variety of surfaces. This combination of the backing and adhesive properties help to prevent edge lifting, keeping the tape securely in place. Because of the thicker backing, this tape is ideal for applications such as protecting signage from dirt and abrasion to prolong its life and readability. 3M™ Vinyl Tape 477 tape resists most common solvents, but care should be taken to avoid using on highly plasticized materials, as well as, ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and esters.
