3M™ Polyethylene Tape 483 White, 1 in x 36 yd 5.3 mil, 36 per case Bulk


We developed 3M™ Polyethylene Tape 483 as a high performance and versatile tape with a wide operational temperature range that remains flexible down to -20 degrees F. We manufacture this tape in a variety of colors using a polyethylene backing with a strong rubber adhesive.


Conformable Backing for a Variety of Applications
Our 3M™ Polyethylene Tape 483 stretches easily and is highly conformable for a tight seal over and around irregular surfaces. The smooth backing provides good solvent and alkali resistance. Coated with a rubber adhesive, this tape bonds well to many surfaces and typically removes cleanly. This resilient tape can be used in outdoor applications and temperatures as low -20°F/-29°C to 170°F/77°C. The black version of this tape will remove cleanly from most surfaces in outdoor applications from up to one year.
