3M™ VHB Tape

3M VHB Tape

Bonding product parts with precision, ease, reliability, and strength requires an approach that breaks the barriers of traditional construction elements. 3M VHB Tapes open up a world of possibilities – eliminating rivets, screws, bolts, and welds – and improving design construction, aesthetics and productivity. With unmatched strength, these tapes increase the overall durability and reliability of every product bond. Experience the strength and reliability of 3M VHB Tapes.

Invisible bond

Enhance your design appearance with virtually invisible bonding - a game-changing approach for your design concepts. Explore new possibilities and use new, innovative materials to improve the look of your products while optimizing performance, preventing bi-metallic corrosion and streamlining your production processes.

A durable difference

With a bond that’s built to withstand the rigors of exposure, 3M VHB Tapes resist hot, cold and cycling temperatures, UV light, moisture, and solvents. They seal against environmental conditions and damp vibration to reduce metallic wear-and-tear.

3M VHB Surface Preparation and Application Steps

3M VHB Surface Preparation and Application Steps

Proper preparation of a surface prior to the application of 3M VHB Tape is a key factor in ensuring maximum bond strength. Many failures can be attributed to poor surface preparation. Note: These cleaner solutions contain greater than 250 g/l of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Please consult your local Air Quality Regulations to be sure the cleaner is compliant. When using solvents, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use when handling such materials.

  • To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be well unified, clean and dry. Typical surface cleaning solvents are IPA/water mixture (rubbing alcohol or heptane (Steps A and B in diagram).
  • Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure develops better adhesive contact and helps improve bond strength (Steps C and D in the diagram). Generally, this means that the tape should experience at least 15 psi (100 kPa) in roll down or platen pressure
  • After application, the bond strength will increase as the adhesive flows onto the surface. At room temperature, approximately 50% of the ultimate strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours and 100% after 72 hours. In some cases, bond strength can be increased and ultimate bond strength can be achieved more quickly by exposure of the bond to elevated temperatures (e.g. 66C for 1 hour)
