3M™ VHB™ Tapes: Strong Double-Sided Acrylic Foam Tapes

With 3M™ VHB™ Tapes, you can maintain consistency from sketch to construction, eliminating distracting, visible fasteners, like screws and bolts.
These strong double-sided acrylic foam tapes let you quickly and easily create a long-lasting bond that actually builds strength over time.
With the ability to join a variety of materials including aluminium, steel, glass, plastics and painted and powder-coated surfaces, they provide a resilient bonding solution for just about any application you can think of.

Choose the right 3M™ VHB™ Tape depending on your substrate or external condition.

* NOTE: Stronger and firmer 3M™ VHB™ Tapes may require a primer to adhere to lower surface energy substrates like paints and plastics and may also require a primer as an extra step. It’s important to consider the trade-off between strength and adhesion, depending on the application.

FAQ

Find the most frequently asked questions about 3M™ VHB™ Tapes.

  • What is 3M™ VHB™ Tape?

    3M™ VHB™ Tapes are a family of double-sided foam tapes made from high performance acrylic adhesives. These tapes form bonds of exceptional strength and have greater durability and elasticity than conventional double-sided foam tapes. The 3M™ VHB™ Tape product range includes tapes with different core constructions and a variety of adhesives. All 3M™ VHB™ Tapes use closed cell technology and provide outstanding environmental resistance and durability. The superior performance of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes means they can often be used to replace mechanical fasteners for joining a wide range of materials.

  • Very High Bond

  • The exceptional performance of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes comes from the properties of the acrylic core. The core has the dual properties of behaving like a very viscous liquid and an elastic solid. This is known as viscoelasticity. The “visco” properties allow the adhesive to flow into the microscopic irregularities of the surface to form a very strong bond. The elastic properties allow these tapes to absorb dynamic loads, accommodate differential expansion between surfaces and help distribute loads over the greatest possible area. The elastic properties are maintained between -40°C and +90°C.

  • It all depends. Different application = different meaning of strength. What needs to be bonded? What are the external conditions? Which forces will occur?

    Find the right product for your application

  • This depends on external factors such as UV exposure, outdoor weathering, moisture etc.

    Read a detailed report on 3M™ VHB™ durability

  • In shear (e.g. holding a sign or panel to a wall) the suggested amount of tape to hold up 1 kg is about 55cm2. For standard tape widths: Tape Length 12.7 cm – wide 430 mm, length 19.0 cm – wide 290 mm, length 25.4 cm – wide 215 mm. These amounts include a significant factor of safety to allow for the different properties of the tapes in the VHB range. These amounts can be reduced by up to 50 % depending on the type of tape if customer evaluation gives satisfactory results. Always test and evaluate the suitability of the chosen VHB Tape for your application.

  • 3M converter partners specialise in taking 3M products and transforming them to meet the specific form, shape, size or quantity your application requires. Plastics, composites, metals—virtually any combination of substrates can be bonded or attached together with the right converted 3M solution. You know your desired result. 3M converter partners can help you get there with solutions that make your product design a viable reality. 3M converter partners can help you think bigger, going beyond your original request to help you achieve additional valuable product characteristics you may not have considered. Many 3M converter partners can quickly create prototype solutions to provide to you to demonstrate product capabilities and support your design process. A converter can create strips, shapes, pads or rolls of die cut tapes to help create production efficiency or enable automation. It can be as simple as peel, stick and move on to your next operation.
