Help damp vibration that can cause weld points to shear, rivets to pull out or cracks to form in adhesive with 3M™ VHB™ Tape.

  • Defends against corrosion.

    Defends against corrosion

    Mechanical fasteners leave holes and gaps where moisture can creep in and cause corrosion. 3M™ VHB™ Tape creates smooth, clean bonds that reduce the risk of rust.

  • Disperses stress

    Disperses stress

    Mechanical fasteners create stress points that can be vulnerable to bends and breaks. 3M™ VHB™ Tape creates continuous bonds that help distribute stress across the length of the surface.

  • Dampens sound and vibration.

    Dampens sound and vibration

    Rivets and screws can be noisy. Waves of sound and motion bounce through the gaps amplifying sound and stress. 3M™ VHB™ Tape features viscoelastic properties that help absorb energy – and the impact on the bond.
