3M VHB tapes have proven to be durable enough to withstand the physcial restraints of road mileage and even the high speeds of NASCAR racing.
3M VHB Tapes have been proven in thousands of buildings worldwide since 1990. As an alternative to structural silicone and spacer tapes/gaskets VBH tapes immediately handle strength results faster.
