Adhesive Tapes

Tapes bonds metal before or after painting.

3M(TM) VHB(TM) tape families enable OEMs to join materials before or after powder-coating process. They provide seal, vibration damping, thermal expansion allowance, and bond differential substrates. Tapes can replace spot welds in metal assembly applications, prior to most paint systems, or replace rivets or screws by bonding to most powder coatings after painting process. Applications include...
