3M™ VHB™ Tapes 

Very high bond tapes aid device assembly

The 3M™ family of VHB™Tapes are made of CLOSED CELL acrylic foam, and offer flexibility in applications with dynamic forces in exterior environments. The VHB™Tapes  acrylic foam chemistry provides outstanding durability for OEM applications.  While many applications can be satisfied with 3M 4941, 3M 4950, and 3M 5952, a review for your application will ensure the correct recommendation.

NEW - 3M™ VHB™ Tapes are now available for Thin Foam Applications.  Need a thinner bond line? Thinner VHB™ tapes dissapate stress and resist chemicals and moisture over long periods in outdoor and harsh conditions.

 Benefits of VHB™ tapes :

  • Easily die-cut - Precisely fit shapes and aid in assembly
  • Strength - Displace traditional fasteners like rivets, liquid adhesives, spot welds and other fasteners
  • Clean appearance - No unsightly rivets or spot welds
  • Seals - Tape runs the length of the bond line and seal. Excellent water and humidity resistance
  • Vibration resistant - Acrylic foam distributes stress over entire area, damp vibration
  • Durability - In continuous use for applications for more than 25 years
  • Seperates metals to reduce potential galvanic corrosion

        VHB™ Thin Foam Tapes Technical Facts:

  • Good for most normal outdoor applications from -40ºF - 200ºF (-10ºC - 94ºC)
  • Additional products available for higher temperature applications
  • Bond build is enhanced by higher temperatures. Min. tack is 50ºF (10ºC) or more
  • Foam softens in water, and maintains a strong bond. Submersion applications may require additional testing and validation
  • Solvents swell adhesives, not dissolve. Splash and incidental contact should be fine, solvent submersion is NOT recommended
