Benefits of a Double Sided Tape

Our 3M Product Services


• Polyester film carrier provides dimensional stability to foams and other substrates to make tape easier to handle during slitting and die-cutting
• Excellent bond to low surface energy substrates including powder coatings and plastics such as polypropylene (PP)
• High adhesion to metals and high surface energy materials, making it suitable for bonding dissimilar substrates
• Adhesive provides excellent holding power and anti-lifting properties


• Excellent chemical resistance and shear and peel strength even at elevated temperatures
• Designed for short term temperature exposure up to 450°F (232°C) and long term 300°F (149°C)
• Adhesive is fiber reinforced for roll stability in narrow widths and to resist oozing
• Low odor for improved working environment


3M™ VHB™ Tape demonstrates high strength and long-lasting bonds. It is composed of a special acrylic foam that provides viscoelasticity and greater cohesive strength for demanding applications.
Specific benefits of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes include: • Fatigue resistance
• Gap filling between substrates
• Accommodation of different thermal expansion rates
• Vibration damping


Thin bonding enables the attachment of different substrates or composites using a strong but very thin tape to keep the overall profile as thin as possible.
Specific benefits of 3M™ Double Sided Tapes for Thin Bonding include: • Low profile in the finished product
• Attach foam or fabric
• Conformable to irregular surfaces
• Clear tapes for display panels and graphics
