3M™ VHB™ Tapes for Assembly Solutions

3MYes. High-strength bonding tape is a proven alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners. Gleicher Manufacturing can help design and convert these materials to help enhance design options, improve workability, increase production and lower cost. Let us help you streamline your next project with a customized solution.

Gleicher cuts 3M VHB Tapes

Unlike screws or rivets – which join materials at a single point – high-strength bonding tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint. Once materials are joined with 3M™ VHB™Tape a virtually indestructible "weld" is created.

Skyscrapers, cell phones, refrigerators …. all rely on high-strength bonding tape to complete one or more steps in the assembly process.

Extraordinary strength, conformability, versatility and UV- and weather-resistance makes 3M™ VHB™ Tape great for bonding:

  • Glass
  • Painted surfaces
  • Metal
  • Painted/sealed wood & concrete
  • Plastics
  • Outdoor & harsh environmental applications
  • Many more!
