Apply this acrylic adhesive to the broadest range of substrates for improved cushioning and damping.

30+ Years of Real-world Applications

Achieve vibration damping with 3M™ VHB™ Tape bonding the frames of rugged vehicles.

For all types of transport vehicles containing all kinds of cargo, 3M vibration damping and bonding materials can make the ride smoother. Aluminum panels bonded with 3M™ VHB™ Tape to the frames of rugged vehicles endure harsh conditions over many years. 3M™ VHB™ Tape, used to bond stainless steel, anti-chafing strips to the exterior of aluminum aircraft wings, reduces in-flight vibration. And, replacing bolts and screws with 3M™ VHB™ Tape for horse-trailer assembly reduces noise, vibration and stress to the animals. Experience proves that 3M™ VHB™ Tapes:

  • Absorb energy and relax internal stresses
  • Protect adhesive bonds on substrates
  • Endure rapid temperature extremes
  • Stand up to constant weathering
  • Demonstrate increased bond strength over time
  • Become more resilient in high humidity or water exposure
  • Bond securely to aluminum, glass, PVC and painted metal

Stronger Bonds with Vibration Damping and Noise Control Benefits

Save time, money, labor across diverse and demanding applications.

Replacing mechanical fasteners with 3M™ VHB™ Tape creates cleaner, smoother appearances while delivering equivalent strength and durability to support static and dynamic loads. 3M's VHB-brand product line uses acrylic, closed-cell foam with shock-absorbing properties perfect for specialty vehicles, electronics, appliances, metal works and specialized construction projects. Easy-to-use 3M™ VHB™ Tapes save time, money, and labor by eliminating drying time and fixturing as well as processing steps such as drilling, screwing, welding, clean-up, and refinishing.
