COLOR CODE YOUR TOOLS

To help organize and track stainless steel tools within different work areas or on their way between sterile processing and work area, we offer Color Coding for our stainless steel tools. Our identification tape offers effective organization and identification of your stainless steel tools.

Our marking tape is easy to use and economical. It stays where it is put, even through repeated sterilization cycles. The tape is a vinyl tape and is latex free. The adhesive is rubber. It adheres securely to our stainless steel tools. It resists chipping, flaking, peeling and cracking through repeated sterilization cycles.

Note: While the tape resists many common solvents, they should not be exposed to ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons and esters found in lacquer thinner, degreasers, paint strippers, etc. This may cause the backing to swell or curl.
 

Autoclave compatible and highly visible color coding tape allows you to code your tools per process or division.

3M #471 Tape is available in (6mm) and 1/8(3mm) widths.

Seven (7) color are available and they can be combined.

For more information on the 3M #471 tape please read the following Technical Bulletin:
