3M™ Vinyl Tape 477

3M (TM) 471 Transp Vinyl Tape
3M (TM) 471 Transp Vinyl Tape
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
  • Removes cleanly without leaving adhesive residue

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.
