3M™ VHB™ Metal Fabrication Tapes

Secure and seal metal products with a bond that lasts.

  • Time, speed and efficiency are crucial to industrial and mechanical engineers in the metalworking industry. 3M™ VHB™ Tape is a high-strength alternative to riveting and welding, which lack both speed and resolve. It requires no finishing, withstands extremely high temperatures, and attaches all kinds of metallic substrates, including powder-coated and painted ones.

What Makes 3M™ VHB™ Tape Superior?

  • 3m vhb waterproof tapes offer the best qualities of both a viscous liquid and an elastic solid for your metal assembly

    Proven High-Performance Bonding

    Achieve strong, durable bonds, even when substrates aren’t flat. Do without the mess and disruption of welding, riveting, or other attachment methods — a long-lasting bond is as quick and simple as applying 3M™ VHB™ Tape!

    Streamline Metalworking Processes and Boost Productivity

    Reduce labour costs, preparation work and finishing from the process, such as weld grinding and sealing individual penetrations from screws, nuts and bolts. The easy application of 3M™ VHB™ Tape saves you time on the assembly ground, and increases efficiency as it also requires minimal training.

    The Strong Complement to Mechanical Fasteners

    Lab-tested and proven in the real world, 3M™ VHB™ Tape is a high-strength alternative to traditional rivets, bolts, screws and welds. The tape distributes stress over the entire bonded area, eliminating stress caused by mechanical fasteners. 

3M™ VHB™ Tape Product Families

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

  • 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape 4412N is a highly conformable single-side acrylic tape with a high performance ionomer backing. 2.0 mm thick. Creates water tight seals over numerous substrates. Conforms over contours, edges, rivets, and screw heads. Paintable and good outdoor durability.

  • 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes are durable, high-performance two-sided acrylic foam tapes for the bonding of glass panels into curtain wall, commercial window and door systems and skylight/canopy systems. These tapes offer significant value to contract glazers and glazing system manufacturers.

  • 3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes utilise multi-purpose acrylic adhesive on both sides of a conformable, foam core. The combination of strength and conformability is specifically designed for good adhesion to metals, glass and other medium to high surface energy materials. Applications for this tape include architectural cladding and as an alternative to structural silicone and spacer tapes/gaskets.
