  • Did you know that 3M™ VHB™ Tape was used to bond 401,202kg (884,500 lbs) of steel panels to the stiffeners on the Walt Disney Concert Hall? This is the kind of strength and durability that 3M™ VHB™ Tape is known for. With unmatched strength and performance excellence for both indoor and outdoor applications, 3M™ VHB™ Tape eliminates rivets, screws, bolts, and welds, improving design construction and aesthetics and boosting productivity.

What Makes 3M™ VHB™ Tape Superior?

  • Simplifies Assembly Process

    Eliminate unnecessary steps and achieve a fast and easy assembly in your construction project when you use 3M™ VHB™ Tape. PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) bonds on contact with no drying time or fixturing. Now you can bond a huge variety of building materials with minimal surface preparation. Whether you’re bonding glass, wood, metal, steel, or concrete, you can achieve greater design flexibility with this adhesive tape.

  • Provides Undeniable Structural Strength

    3M™ VHB™ Tape outperforms and outlasts mechanical fasteners and provides a cleaner and more durable design. The tape gets its extreme strength and durability from the way it's built. It consists of a viscoelastic acrylic adhesive which has the properties of behaving like a viscous liquid and an elastic solid. It distributes loads over a wider area, balances different levels of expansion and contraction between substrates, and is good at absorbing dynamic load levels.

  • 3m vhb double sided heavy duty tapes offer the best properties of both a viscous liquid and an elastic solid and easily bond dissimilar materials like glass and wood for greater design flexibility

    Beautiful Interiors and Exteriors

    Rivets and screws leave unsightly marks that can impact your designs. 3M™ VHB™ Tape is available in transparent options, giving an aesthetically pleasing finish with no trace of pocks or punctures. Virtually invisible fastening keeps surfaces smooth and clean, enhancing design and appearance.
