For tape applications requiring resistance to most chemicals used in electroplating and anodizing processes, use 3M™ Electroplating/Anodizing Tape 484. This tan, conformable tape features an abrasion-resistant backing ideal for use with plating chemicals, anodizing chemicals, milling, etching, and peening operations.
We've engineered 3M™ Electroplating/Anodizing Tape 484 to withstand intense and difficult conditions associated with electroplating and anodizing processes. Offering lower adhesion than 3M™ Electroplating Tape 470, it is ideal for more delicate surfaces. It's 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. This tape will hold up while operating at temperatures of up to 170°F/76°C. When you're finished, the tape removes cleanly from most surfaces. In addition, the backing accepts marker ink and is printable using a thermal transfer process, making customization relatively easy when needed.
