    The technology

    3M™ VHB™ Tape is a high-strength, double-sided acrylic adhesive tape. The pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) creates an instant bond without any drying time required.

    The polymer of 3M™ VHB™ Tape is composed of carbon-carbon chemical bonds that are highly resistant to energy. Exposure to heat, UV rays or chemicals can cause mechanical properties with less durable foams to break down. With 3M™ VHB™ Tape, the materials actually get stronger over time, providing a stronger, long-lasting bond.
