3M Low Range Oil Quality Test Strips 1005

The 3M low range fryer oil quality test strips are a great way to measure the shortening breakdown in your fryer.

The 3M low range fryer oil quality test strips are a great way to measure the shortening breakdown in your fryer. Compared to standard test strips, the low range strips deliver accurate FFA (free fatty acid) concentration ratings from 1 to 2.5 percent, providing a more precise reading of early oil degradation. These test strips help save money by preventing premature dumping of fryer oil. Of course, it’s also important not to overuse your fryer oil, as that can result in poor food quality. These strips take the guesswork out of deciding when to change your oil so you can get the most out of your supply while maintaining consistent products. They’re food safe, and they work in operating temperatures of 325 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

To test your fryer oil, use tongs to hold the test strip by the long white end, and dip the test strip into hot oil so all of the blue bands are submerged. Hold the test strip in the oil for 5 seconds, then remove it and wait 30 seconds. Next, hold the strip to the light, compare it to the included evaluation guide, and follow the recommendations. To ensure proper functionality, these low range test strips should not be stored in humid conditions or in an area where they may be exposed to water or oil before use. Always keep test strip bottles tightly closed and store any bottles not in use in a refrigerator or freezer.




3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 Tan, 1 in x 36 yd 7.1 mil

Protects parts and surfaces during the electroplating process.

Protects parts and surfaces during the electroplating process.
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Conforms to irregular surfaces; clean removal
  • Handles temperatures to 121°C (250°F)
  • Vinyl backing with rubber adhesive
  • Sold by the Roll (no need to buy a whole case)


3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 is a vinyl backed tape with a rubber adhesive. It is resistant to most chemicals typically used in electroplating processes. With a conformable, abrasion resistant backing it’s ideal for use with plating chemicals, electroplating nickel, electroless nickel, milling and etching in titanium and peening operations.

Extended Description

Rugged Reliability

We’ve engineered our 3M™ Electroplating Tape 470 to withstand intense and difficult conditions associated with electroplating and anodizing processes. It’s built on a vinyl backing that is non-corrosive and flexible, allowing it to conform to irregular or curved surfaces while remaining resistant to most common solvents as well as offering excellent resistance to chemicals used in electroplating. This tape will hold up while operating at temperatures of up to 170°F/76°C. In addition, the backing accepts marker ink and is printable using a thermal transfer process making customization and marking relatively easy when needed. When you’re finished, the tape removes cleanly without unwanted residue.

Recommended Applications

Masking during electroplating operations, including both flat strip and overlapping masks
Masking during anodizing operations
Wrapping, patching, coated racks and masking irregular surfaces
Milling and etching in titanium
Peening operations
Sealing containers from water intrusion
