3M™ VHB™ Tape 4952 is a 45.0 mil thick firm, double-sided, pressure-sensitive, closed-cell acrylic foam tape with a paper liner. 3M™ VHB™ Tape eliminates the need for rivets, bolts, screws and welds. It helps provide handling convenience, cushioning, damping, and impact resistance.

3M™ VHB™ Tape is comprised of closed-cell foam with pressure sensitive adhesive on two sides. This unique combination offers benefits that screws, rivets, welds and other types of mechanical fasteners just can’t match. In many situations, they can replace other permanent fasteners. They are made with acrylic foam which is viscoelastic in nature. This gives the foam energy absorbing and stress relaxing properties which helps provide these tapes with their unique characteristics. The acrylic chemistry helps provide outstanding durability performance. 3M™ VHB™ Tape 4952 utilizes a low surface energy adhesive on a firm foam and performs best on smooth, glossy surfaces such as polypropylene and powder paints. Abrasion may reduce the bond strength.
