Renowned architect Moshe Safdie used 3M™ VHB™ Tapes in over 9,000 panels to provide the necessary structural support for Singapore's latest architectural wonder, Changi Jewel Building.
The metal cladding at the world’s tallest hotel, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, is held together with 3M™ VHB™ Tapes to cope with the very high temperature and strong desert winds.
The first purpose-built Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia used 3M™ VHB™ Tapes for high holding power and long-term reliability.
Who knew tape could change the lives of industrial and design engineers for the better, forever?
3M™ VHB™ Tapes have opened a world of new possibilities. These high-strength, double-sided acrylic foam tapes are proven alternatives to traditional fastening methods — replacing rivets, screws, bolts and welds. With 40 years of proven performance and industry innovation, 3M™ VHB™ Tape has the strength it takes to meet the most demanding bonding applications and realise your design vision.
Eliminate the barriers standing between you and a picture-perfect final product with this amazingly strong fastener that's designed to go unseen.
3M™ VHB™ Tape distributes dynamic or static stress over the entire surface of the design, resulting in impact resistance and damp vibration to reduce metallic wear-and-tear. This high-strength double-sided tape creates both an exceptionally tight seal and a long-lasting bond that get stronger over time, eliminating the need for mechanical fasteners – for good.
Bonds made with 3M™ VHB™ Tape can withstand temperature fluctuations from -40°C up to 66°C, UV light, moisture, and solvents. Its viscoelastic properties help absorb energy and form a protective barrier against moisture, dirt, and chemicals.
3M™ VHB™ Tape requires zero cure time and is easy to use and apply, eliminating welding and grinding required to prepare welds for finishing. The tapes bond and seal on contact, assemble easily, and can be cut to precise shapes and sizes for custom applications.
3M™ VHB™ Tape can help you deliver high-quality, high-impact designs with unlimited potential. It bonds to dissimilar materials, prevents bi-metallic corrosion, and creates a smooth and clean finish with no trace of pocks or punctures.
Boost productivity on the assembly floor with the efficiency of tape. 3M™ VHB™ Tape bonds and seals in one step, simplifying the bonding process—even for hard-to-bond sheet metals. The application is quick and simple as compared to riveting and welding, which lack both speed and resolve and are vulnerable to corrosion.
3M™ VHB™ Tapes hold indoor and outdoor signage without the work of screws and the mess and curing time of liquid adhesives. They seal against environmental conditions and damp vibration to reduce metallic wear-and-tear.
Architects rely on the strength, speed and quality of 3M™ VHB™ Tape to eliminate time-consuming labour and increase application efficiency. The tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while distributing the stress load across the entire length of the joint for a long-lasting bond.
3M™ VHB™ Tape lets you confidently design vehicles that can withstand extreme conditions on the open road. Eliminate the added weight of mechanical fasteners and keep sides smooth for decals while damping vibration for a quieter ride.
Trust in 3M™ VHB™ Tape to enhance your appliance’s aesthetic with virtually invisible bonding. For easy assembly of home appliances, the tape maintains a stronger holding power with its higher surface-to-surface contact when bonding different materials like glass and metal.
3M™ VHB™ Tape meets the high standards of the electronics industry by providing top-notch design flexibility with its viscoelastic properties that provide shock and vibration resistance. It's been used to bond everything from high-definition television screens to moisture-sealed nautical navigational systems.
This tape family utilises multi-purpose acrylic adhesive on both sides of a conformable adhesive foam core. The adhesive provides excellent adhesion to a broad range of high and medium surface energy substrates including metals, glass, and a wide variety of plastics, as well as plasticised vinyl.
This tape family has superior high-temperature performance, making it often suitable for assembly prior to powder coat or liquid paint processes involving a paint bake cycle and applications with high operating temperatures. Ideal for stiffeners applied to architectural metal panels, elevator door panels, equipment enclosures, metal cabinets, appliance, signage etc.
