3M VHB Acrylic Foam Tape

3M VHB Acrylic Foam Tape is white closed cell acrylic foam with high-strength, long-aging acrylic adhesive on both sides. Both sides have excellent immediate tack and VHB foam tape features the highest peel strengths available in a pressure sensitive system. Available in 25 mils and 45 mils with a treated paper liner. Primary applications are industrial assembly as an alternative to mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives ie instead of welds, screws, or rivets. The totally unique acrylic foam adds a new dimension to conformability without increasing the thickness.
