Highlights
  • Thick backing provides heavy duty protection and increased abrasion resistance
  • Aggressive rubber adhesive bonds to a variety of surfaces for long-term use, even in outdoor applications
  • Conformable backing makes vinyl tape ideal for use on curved and irregular surfaces
  • Unique stretch properties enable tape to remain stretched to conform to uneven surfaces without lifting and retracting
  • Good solvent resistance for application protection and longer product life

Heavy Duty, Abrasion Resistant Protection - 3M™ Vinyl Tape 472 has a thick backing that combines high abrasion resistance with the inherent conformability of a vinyl. Designed with unique stretch properties, this tape conforms to irregular, curved and convex surfaces while remaining stretched and without lifting after application. The rubber adhesive aggressively adheres to a variety of surfaces and maintains its bond for long periods of time, including up to one year in outdoor applications. This combination of the backing and adhesive properties help to keep the tape securely in place, even in rugged and outdoor conditions. Because of the thicker backing, this tape is ideal for protection in areas where heavy abrasion is anticipated, as well as sand blast and bead blast overspray protection. 3M™ Vinyl Tape 472 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.
