Extremely strong, conformable, versatile and UV resistant makes the 3M™ 4910 VHB™ tape great for bonding a range of substrates.
3M VHB double sided tape bonds to a wide variety of surfaces, including:
- Some plastics
- Sealed woods
Popular applications of the 3M 4910 tape include - joining transparent materials, panel to frame, name plates, logos and signage.
3M double-sided foam tapes provide high adhesion and a long-term, permanent assembly solution.
Replacing Traditional Fastening Methods
The 3M VHB tape is quickly replacing more traditional fastening methods such as welding, screws, bolts and rivets.
It offers a range of benefits such as - spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint, no weld marks or heat spots, it doesn't damage the surface and keeps wastage to a minimum. It also helps aid productivity, moving on to the next production stage quickly.
WHAT DOES VHB STAND FOR?
Very High Bond
WHAT IS 3M™ VHB™ TAPE USED FOR?
3M™ VHB™ tape is used to bond, seal and attach substrates including - metals, plastics and glass. VHB tapes are often used to replace mechanical fastening methods such as screws, rivets, welding etc. due to their high performance.
WHAT IS THE IDEAL APPLICATION TEMPERATURE FOR VHB TAPE?
Ideal application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C).
Pressure sensitive adhesives use viscous flow to achieve substrate contact area.
Minimum suggested application temperatures: • 50°F (10°C): 3M™ VHB™ Tapes 5952 and RP families. • 60°F (15°C): 3M™ VHB™ Tape 4941 family.
Note: Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below these suggested minimums is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory. To obtain good performance with all 3M™ VHB™ Tapes, it is important to ensure that the surfaces are dry and free of condensed moisture.
BEFORE SELECTING A VHB TAPE, WHAT FACTORS SHOULD YOU CONSIDER?
If you haven't previously used a VHB tape before for this specific application. You should consider the following before purchasing - what substrates are being bonded, the environment in which it will be used, the application, the temperature it will be in and weight of the load it needs to hold.
