Highlights
  • Metalized surface provides some of the advantages of a metal tape without the associated weight
  • Mirror-like finish gives the tape high visibility where it is needed and maintains its bright appearance for up to 3 months
  • Thin, high strength polyester film meets low caliper requirements which won't interfere with most machinery processes
  • Liner is convenient for die-cutting and applications to large surface areas, or applications where there is a narrow gap
  • Abrasion resistance protects surface from abrasion and rough handling
  • Pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive for clarity and long-term holding

3M™ Metalized Film Tape 8437 is comprised of a relatively thin polyester backing with a metalized coating on both side of the film providing a mirror-like finish with low emissivity and a versatile, long lasting acrylic adhesive. A silicone coated release liner helps with ease of handling and allows for large area applications and die-cutting custom shapes.

High Visibility and Low Emissivity
Our 3M™ Metalized Film Tape 8437 (PDF, 290 Kb) is generally used for splicing and web applications. The backing is a thin, high tensile strength polyester with a metalized coating on both sides. The metalized surface gives many of the advantages of metal tape without the associated weight. This backing provides some conductivity and maintains a bright, mirror-like appearance. It also meets low-caliper requirements to ensure it won't interfere with most machinery. The tape can withstand a wide temperature range from -60°F/-50°C to 300°F/150°C. A pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive grabs on contact and holds securely. 3M™ Metalized Film Tape 8437 is mounted on a liner to allow for large area applications and die-cutting
