3M VHB tape is a speciality acrylic foam tape that offers excellent performance and reliability. VHB tape is a proven high-strength alternative to traditional fixing methods such as screwing and welding. The foamed acrylic adhesive permanently adheres one substrate to another, creating a virtually indestructible bond.
As well as bonding, VHB tape seals against moisture and other contaminants. It absorbs shock and impact and can accommodate contraction of dissimilar substrates, as well as conform to rough and uneven surfaces.
3M VHB tape is a trusted and proven solution that is easy to use. This foamed acrylic adhesive has been used in demanding applications for over 30 years and will continue to offer long term and cost effective solutions, for example, in building construction, signage, electronics and automotive applications.
