Double sided VHB® Tapes

VHB™ (Very High Bond) tapes, developed by the 3M™ company in 1980, can replace traditional mechanical fasteners such as rivets, nuts & bolts or welding.

 

The technology has been proven in sectors such as boiler-making, sheet metal work, road signage, domestic appliances, transport, building, etc.

 

VHB™ adhesive rolls differ from standard double-sided foam adhesive tapes.

The difference is that these tapes do not have a foam substrate; they consist exclusively of a viscoelastic acrylic adhesive (the acrylic core has the dual properties of behaving like a viscous liquid and an elastic solid) and a film release liner.

 

This unusual structure lets VHB™ tapes absorb mechanical stresses (shear, peel, tension… ), giving the tapes exceptional strength and durability.

 

The main properties of VHB™ are: conformability, instantaneous mounting, viscoelasticity, impact damping, sealing and aesthetic finish.

 

The wide range of VHB™ tapes offer solutions to all assembly problematic issues such as bonding during power-coated painting processes, the assembly of all types of materials (even those most difficult to bond), absolute transparency, fire resistance, etc.

 

In 2017, 3M® launched a new range: VHB® GPH (General Purpose High temperature) – this range combines the benefits of a versatile tape with retention of properties at elevated temperatures (230°C for short-term use and 150°C for long-term use)
