Bond composites and LSE plastics with no need for a primer.
3M™ VHB™ Tape GPH’s high temperature resistance allows it to be bonded prior to high heat powder coat or liquid painting processes. This reduces the number of “touches,” leading to a more streamlined manufacturing process.
Who knew tape could change the lives of industrial and design engineers for the better, forever?
3M™ VHB™ Tapes have opened a world of new possibilities. These high-strength, double-sided acrylic foam tapes are proven alternatives to traditional fastening methods — replacing rivets, screws, bolts and welds. With over 30 years of proven performance and industry innovation, 3M™ VHB™ Tape has the strength it takes to meet the most demanding bonding applications and realise your design vision.
Eliminate the barriers standing between you and a picture-perfect final product with this amazingly strong fastener that's designed to go unseen.
3M™ VHB™ Tape distributes dynamic or static stress over the entire surface of the design, resulting in impact resistance and damp vibration to reduce metallic wear-and-tear. The tape creates both an exceptionally tight seal and a long-lasting bond that get stronger over time, eliminating the need for mechanical fasteners – for good.
Bonds made with 3M™ VHB™ Tape can withstand temperature fluctuations from -40°C up to 66°C, UV light, moisture, and solvents. Its viscoelastic properties help absorb energy and form a protective barrier against moisture, dirt, and chemicals.
3M™ VHB™ Tape requires zero cure time and is easy to use and apply, eliminating welding and grinding required to prepare welds for finishing. The tapes bond and seal on contact, assemble easily, and can be cut to precise shapes and sizes for custom applications.
3M™ VHB™ Tape can help you deliver high-quality, high-impact designs with unlimited potential. It bonds to dissimilar materials, prevents bi-metallic corrosion, and creates a smooth and clean finish with no trace of pocks or punctures.
3M™ VHB™ Tape lets you confidently design vehicles that can withstand extreme conditions on the open road. Eliminate the added weight of mechanical fasteners and keep sides smooth for decals while damping vibration for a quieter ride.
Boost productivity on the assembly floor with the efficiency of tape. 3M™ VHB™ Tape bonds and seals in one step, simplifying the bonding process—even for hard-to-bond sheet metals. The application is quick and simple as compared to riveting and welding, which lack both speed and resolve and are vulnerable to corrosion.
Architects rely on the strength, speed and quality of 3M™ VHB™ Tape to eliminate time-consuming labour and increase application efficiency. The tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while distributing the stress load across the entire length of the joint for a long-lasting bond.
3M™ VHB™ Tape meets the high standards of the electronics industry by providing top-notch design flexibility with its viscoelastic properties that provide shock and vibration resistance. It's been used to bond everything from high-definition television screens to moisture-sealed nautical navigational systems.
3M™ VHB™ Tapes hold indoor and outdoor signage without the work of screws and the mess and curing time of liquid adhesives. They seal against environmental conditions and damp vibration to reduce metallic wear-and-tear.
Trust in 3M™ VHB™ Tape to enhance your appliance’s aesthetic with virtually invisible bonding. For easy assembly of home appliances, the tape maintains a stronger holding power with its higher surface-to-surface contact when bonding different materials like glass and metal.
This tape family has superior high-temperature performance, making it often suitable for assembly prior to powder coat or liquid paint processes involving a paint bake cycle and applications with high operating temperatures. Ideal for stiffeners applied to architectural metal panels, elevator door panels, equipment enclosures, metal cabinets, appliance, signage etc.
Engineered with a uniquely thin form, 3M™ VHB™ Thin Foam Tapes go where thicker foam tapes simply can’t.Common applications include LCD, OLED, lens and touch-panel bonding, logo attachment and point-of-purchase/display construction.
3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes are durable, high performance double-sided acrylic foam tapes for the bonding of glass panels into curtain wall, commercial window and door systems and skylight/canopy systems. These tapes offer significant value to contract glazers and glazing system manufacturers.
