Very High Bond (VHB) 3M Structural Tapes
3M VHB: Double Sided:
3M VHB tape have been used by designers across industries around the world. 3M VHB tape bond, seal and attach metal, plastic and glass assemblies while replacing traditional mechanical fasteners and adhesives such as screws, rivets and welds. All VHB tapes provide good adhesion to most metals, glass and high surface energy plastics.
The 3M VHB Tapes are a family of double-sided foam tapes that are made from high performance acrylic adhesives. Due to the tapes being able to form bonds of exceptional strength and greater durability, it is no wonder why so many people are switching to 3M VHB tape. Have a look at our comprehensive guide to VHB tapes for more information.
