Product Details

3M™ Electroplating Tape 470L is a linered version of the 3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 and is designed to withstand intense and difficult conditions associated with electroplating and anodizing processes. Built on a flexible vinyl backing that conforms to irregular or curved surfaces, it is resistant to most common solvents and has excellent resistance to chemicals used in electroplating and anodizing.

Product Features

  • Operates at temperatures of up to 170°F/76°C
  • Liner allows for die-cutting or large area applications
  • Rubber adhesive provides excellent holding strength on many surfaces
  • Tape removes cleanly from most surfaces
  • Abrasion, moisture and wear resistant to withstand rugged working conditions
  • Backing accepts marker ink and is printable using a thermal transfer process, making customization relatively easy when needed
  • Prolonged exposure to elevated temperatures (above 250°F/121°C) and hot caustics may cause weakening of the adhesive bond
  • Care should be taken to avoid ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and esters, found in lacquer thinners, degreasers, paint strippers, etc., which may cause the backing to swell or curl
