3M™ VHB Tape

3M™ VHB™ Tapes, or Very High Bond Tapes, are thin, double-sided foam tapes with pressure-sensitive adhesive. VHB Tape provides a long-lasting, durable bond and can be used in a wide range of commercial and industrial settings. Because of VHB tape's exceptional bonding properties, it is often used to replace traditional permanent fasteners like screws, rivets, and spot welds in industrial applications.
