3M™ VHB™ Tapes for Appliances

3M™ VHB™ Tapes have helped many appliance manufacturers all over the world deliver a sleek modern design with high process efficiency.

  • 3M™ VHB™ Tapes are used to assemble a wide variety of appliances, including washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, ovens, and more. They offer appliance manufacturers a distinct bonding advantage by spreading stress loads across the entire length of the joint, permanently adhering materials with a powerful bond. Their moisture resistance and excellent load distribution qualities help increase the toughness and longevity of appliances, and their easy application speeds up the design and assembly process.

What Makes 3M™ VHB™ Tape Superior?

    Adherence of Dissimilar Materials

    Bond product parts with precision, ease, and reliability. 3M™ VHB™ Tape maintains a stronger holding power that builds strength over time with its higher surface-to-surface contact when bonding different materials like glass and metal.

  • 3m vhb tape is a heat-resistant, double sided adhesive tape that produces a waterproof bond for glass and metal surfaces on appliances like ovens

    Design Flexibility and Aesthetics

    Keep appliance surfaces smooth and clean. 3M™ VHB™ Tape eliminates unsightly rivets, protruding bolts, screw heads, and surface markings with virtually invisible fastening. The tape can also be precision die-cut to fit any shape, size, or profile, maximising design flexibility while minimising assembly time.

    Lightweight and Durable Appliances

    Manufacturers are using more plastic materials and thinner metals to build lightweight and durable appliances. Welding and fastening weaken substrates and require a minimum thickness to retain integrity. With 3M™ VHB™ Tape, lighter and thinner materials can be used to create durable bonds that last. The tape can also fill irregularities and gaps between surfaces, sealing against water and debris. 

3M™ VHB™ Tape Product Families

  • A highly comfortable tape that excels in attaching plastic and metal emblems to powder-coat paints.

  • A general purpose adhesive with 3M™ VHB™ Tape performance, designed for a wide range of general bonding needs.

  • These tapes are designed to withstand the high-temperature bake cycles associated with powder coat or liquid paint processes used to finish metal assemblies.
