3M™ VHB Tape

3M™ VHB™ Tapes, or Very High Bond Tapes, are a family of double-sided foam tapes made from high-performance acrylic adhesives. Ideal for consumer and commercial industrial applications, VHB Tapes provide a long-lasting, durable bond and can be used in numerous settings. Because of VHB tape's exceptional bonding properties, it can be used to replace traditional permanent fasteners like screws, rivets, and spot welds for many applications. If you need a reliable, easy-to-use bonding solution, 3M VHB Tapes are a versatile alternative to conventional fastening for many interior and exterior projects.

3M Double-Sided VHB Tapes Features and Benefits

3M VHB tapes are engineered to deliver outstanding bonding performance, ideal for applications that require secure attaching, joining, and mounting. The strength, durability, and elasticity of VHB tapes are far superior to conventional double-sided foam tapes. VHB Tapes are compatible with a wide range of materials and are easy to install, avoiding messy liquid adhesives. VHB tapes also provide moderate vibration and shock absorption while acting as a stiffener, helping protect and reinforce the bonded materials.

While other fastening solutions rely on focused points of contact, VHB tape's viscoelasticity properties allow relative movement of parts for thermal expansion and contraction. Very High Bond Tape is resistant to UV rays and saltwater, making it a reliable bonding solution for outdoor projects.
