3M™ VHB™ Tape 4918F replaces screws, rivets and studs to permanently adhere 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. It offers design flexibility with its viscoelasticity and a powerful ability to bond to a variety of surfaces.

3M™ VHB™ Tape 4918F is a fast and easy-to-apply permanent bond that replaces screws, rivets, and studs in appropriate applications. Virtually invisible when completed, this bond requires no drilling, grinding, refinishing, or clean-up while at the same time spreading the stress load evenly across the joint rather than stressing several different points. The pressure sensitive adhesive creates a permanent and nearly indestructible bond on contact with no drying time and seals against water, moisture, salt, and more. 3M™ VHB™ Tape consists of a durable acrylic adhesive with viscoelastic properties. This provides an extraordinarily strong double-sided foam tape that adheres to a broad range of substrates including aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, composites, plastics, acrylic, polycarbonate, ABS, and painted or sealed wood and concrete. These tapes provide excellent shear strength, conformability, surface adhesion, and temperature resistance. They are commonly used in applications across a variety of markets including transportation, appliances, electronics, construction, sign and display, and general industrial. This tape reliably bonds a variety of materials with strength and speed for permanent applications.
