3M™ VHB™ Tape

Can tape really replace mechanical fasteners?

Yes. High-strength bonding tape is a proven alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners.

Unlike screws or rivets – which join materials at a single point – high-strength bonding tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint. Once materials are joined with 3M™ VHB™ Tape a virtually indestructible "weld" is created.

Skyscrapers, cell phones, refrigerators … all rely on high-strength bonding tape to complete one or more steps in the assembly process.
