3M™ VHB™ Tapes are high-strength bonding tapes and a proven alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other mechanical fasteners.
Unlike screws or rivets – which join materials at a single point – high-strength bonding tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint. Once materials are joined with 3M™ VHB™ Tape a virtually indestructible “weld” is created.
Unique viscoelastic properties absorb shock and distribute stress evenly. This tape's flexibility compensates for differential thermal expansion between dissimilar materials, so they can be bonded with confidence.
3M™ VHB™ Tapes bond and seal aluminum, steel, glass, painted and powder-coated surfaces, and plastics such as acrylic and polycarbonate.
