Automotive process and design engineers are familiar with traditional joining methods like mechanical fasteners in their assembly process. Unfortunately, they are prone to metal distortion and weakness during heavy loads and cause metal fatigue with the added weight. For panel-to-frame vehicle assembly, 3M™ VHB™ Tape provides the strength you need while enabling lightweight, high-performance vehicles that last on the open roads despite constant exposure to harsh weather conditions, moisture, and UV light.
Count on 3M™ VHB™ Tape to keep your vehicle durable. The tape forms a protective barrier against moisture and contaminants, and is highly resistant to heat, UV light as well as chemical attacks.
3M™ VHB™ Tape features viscoelastic properties that absorb energy and reduce constant vibration for a smoother and more comfortable ride. The tape enables designers and engineers to choose different, lighter materials and combine them in new and innovative ways for lightweight assemblies.
Unlike rivets and screws that can leave unsightly marks and cause corrosion, the virtually invisible fastening of 3M™ VHB™ Tape prevents bi-metallic corrosion and beautifies the appearance of your vehicles.
The 3M™ VHB™ 4941 product 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 utilises modified acrylic adhesive on both sides of a highly conformable adhesive foam core, providing adhesion to the broadest range of substrates, including most powder coated paints.
The RP family utilises modified acrylic adhesive on both sides of a very conformable, adhesive foam core. The combination of strength and adhesion makes this family one of the most capable and well-rounded tapes. It is specifically designed for good adhesion to high, medium, and low surface energy such as plastics, paints, metals, and glass.
