Very High Bond Tape (VHB Tape)

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

Features of 3M Double-Sided VHB Tapes

VHB Tape is easy to install and avoids lengthy clean-up and messy liquid adhesives. These double-sided tapes offer instant bonding strength while simultaneously providing a secure seal. VHB also provides moderate vibration and shock absorption. While other fastening solutions rely on focused points of contact, VHB's viscoelasticity properties allow relative movement of parts for thermal expansion and contraction. Very High Bond Tapes are also resistant to UV rays and saltwater, making them an ideal bonding solution for outdoor projects.

VHB Tape Industrial Uses

Because VHB Tape demonstrates remarkable bonding power and durability, it is utilized extensively in industrial environments, including transportation, metalworking, and construction. VHB's acrylic is a durable chemistry with excellent long-term aging resistance that can withstand powder coating and liquid painting treatments that produce bursts of heat. Unlike riveting and welding, VHB tape requires no finishing, making it a simple solution with long-lasting results.

Additional uses for VHB tape include:
  • Panel to frame applications
  • Signage and commercial display applications
  • Stiffener to panel applications
  • LCD, lens, and touch panel bonding
  • Decorative material attachment applications
