We developed 3M™ Vinyl Tape 477 for applications where abrasion resistance, transparency, conformability and moderate adhesion are needed. Our 7.2 mil tape is composed of a conformable, transparent vinyl backing with a versatile rubber adhesive and will resist most common solvents.
Transparent backing allows visibility and protection of surfaces
Thick backing makes it ideal for many applications which require abrasion protection
Transparency eliminates the need for color matching tapes
Conformability and dead stretch properties make it ideal for taping or sealing many curved and irregular surfaces
Its thick backing and moisture resistant attributes are also useful for protecting surfaces. The tape stretches, is conformable and also ideal for splicing flexible materials. Our rubber adhesive provides quick stick and removes cleanly. Best results are attained when applied to a clean, dry surface at temperatures between 60 to 80 degrees F/16 to 27 degrees C.
