3M 471 Vinyl Tape

Solve a variety of challenges, including floor and safety marking, color coding, and industrial applications with our durable 3M Vinyl Tape 471. Designed to resist wear, scrapes, and moisture, this long-lasting tape is available in an array of vivid colors, as well as transparent.

Conforms to Irregular Surfaces, Removes Cleanly
3M Vinyl Tape 471 is a versatile tape that provides long-lasting floor and safety marking, sharp paint lines on complex jobs and reliable seals or repairs in a variety of industries. Designed with unique stretch properties, this tape conforms to rough, irregular, curved and convex surfaces while remaining stretched and without lifting after application. The rubber adhesive offers quick stick and excellent holding strength on many substrates.

The tape removes cleanly in one piece from most surfaces to help reduce clean-up and labor costs. Conformability, instant adhesion and clean removal all make 3M Vinyl Tape 471 an exceptional choice for temporary surface protection, general-purpose paint masking and decorating.
Recommended Applications

Lane and safety marking applications
Temporary surface protection
Anodizing and electroplating
Fine line paint masking
Color coding
Canister and storage container sealing
Bundling and reinforcing

Bright Colors in Difficult Applications
3M Vinyl Tape 471 features high abrasion resistance to excel in lane marking and coding applications. It maintains its color when exposed to abrasion, wear and many solvents. Using 3M Vinyl Tape 471 is a faster, more versatile and less costly option than painting, which often requires ventilation and time-consuming prep and clean up processes. Because 3M Vinyl Tape 471 has low leachable halogens and sulfur, it can be used in corrosion sensitive applications.
