Polyester and vinyl tapes are the right solution for different application of bonding tapes that need small thickness, colour brightness, tensile strength and resistance to ageing and temperature.
Suitability: for different applications: masking in fine-line paint, sealing of containers, protection of surfaces and identification. In this sector the best performances are given by vinyl and polyethylene supports.
Clean removal: for applications where bonding residues must not remain on the surface after removal. In this field, our bonding systems have been successfully used for many years.
CColour codification: 3M 471 and 483 tapes are available in different colours; so they are the ideal to meet the needs of colour codification , identification and decoration.
Resistance to abrasion: the "full colour" concept used to produce 3M vinyl and polyethylene supports give to this products exceptional long life for many applications that need resistance to abrasion, like horizontal signs in corridors.
Resistance to chemical agents: thanks to their chemical resistance, our vinyl and polyethylene products are the ideal for different applications, as metal plating, which requires exposition/resistance to chemical agents
Masking in fine-line paint: 3M 471 blu tape with its excellent features of elongation of the vinyl support together with the strength of the gum-resin bonding system enables to this truck constructor to make masking in fine-line paint.
Colour codification and identification: the bright colours available with 3M 471 vinyl support together with the strong and the immediate bonding of the gum-resin bonding system meet a lot of needs of colour codification and "immediate" identification.
Horizontal signs of corridors and damage warning signs: the long life and resistance to abrasion of the �full colour� vinyl support of 3M 741 tape and the printing of the bonding side of 5702 tape meet the many needs of safety signs.
Metal plating: the resistance to chemical agents and conformity of the gum-resin bonding system of 3M 470 tape enable to efficacy make masking of non-plated areas of this helicopter blade.
Cap sealing: moulding features and resistance to UV rays of the black polyethylene support of 3M 483 tape together with the resistance to release bonding substance with low halogen content of the gum-resin bonding system enable perfect sealing of cap of metal piping of this nuclear plant.
Outdoor protection: moulding features and resistance to UV rays and to humidity of the polyethylene support together with the resistance to release bonding substance of the gum-resin bonding system enable 3M 481 black tape and 4811 white protection tape to perfectly seal this airmobile, for example.
