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.

  • Truck
  • A beverage truck and trailer manufacturer put 3M™ VHB™ Tape to the test against traditional fasteners and adhesives.

    After 15 years worth of wear and tear, 3M™ VHB™ Tape was the only technology left standing.

  • Tractor Trailer
  • Data shows the cushioning and isolating effect of 3M™ VHB™ Tape helps resist constant vibration that tractor trailers experience on the road - effects that can lead rivets, welds, and adhesives to crack, break, or fail.
