3M™ VHB™ high-strength bonding tape is a proven alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners.

With Gleicher Manufacturing Corporation, 3M bonding tape can be sized, shaped, and mass-produced for a wide range of project needs.

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.

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

Working with these 3M products, Gleicher Manufacturing is able to tailor the specific shape of any and all of these bonding applications to the needs of specific customer needs.
