3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 is a versatile tape that provides long-lasting floor marking, sharp paint lines, surface protection, and reliable seals in complex situations across a variety of industries. Engineered with unique stretch properties, this tape conforms to rough, irregular, curved, and convex surfaces without lifting. It uses a rubber adhesive that bonds immediately and removes cleanly on a wide variety of substrates. Made for high performance, the vibrant backing resists abrasion, moisture, and solvents. Conformability, instant adhesion, and clean removal all make 3M™ Vinyl Tape 471 an exceptional choice for general-purpose surface protection, floor marking, hazard identification, paint masking, and decorating.

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
  • Decorating

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.
