3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes

  • 3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes and 3M™ VHB™ Tape GPH-160 are high performance double-sided pressure sensitive acrylic foam tapes used in the fabrication of architectural panel systems, including aluminum composite material

    (ACM) panels and plate metal panels (aluminum and stainless steel). Stiffeners can be attached prior to liquid paint or powder coat processes involving a paint-bake cycle or post-paint. These tapes are a fast and easy-to-use permanent bonding method providing high strength and long-term durability since 1980. A high performance two-sided pressure sensitive acrylic foam tape used in the fabrication and attachment of architectural panel systems.

    Benefits include:

    •  Increased productivity – immediate handling strength reduces assembly and delivery time
    • Improved appearance over traditional fastening methods; the potential to eliminate screws, rivets and welding
    • Proven performance and durability in architectural panel applications since 1980
    • Less than 5% adhesive waste factor
    • Increased manufacturing efficiency through reduced touch points and streamlined processes

    Typical applications include attachment of:

    • Exterior architectural panels (metal, composites, glass, phenolic and plastics)
    • Building cladding
    • Panel stiffeners including bonding pre-paint baked cycles
    • Interior architectural panels
    • Decorative metal and trim
