™ Automotive Acrylic Attachment Tapes 

 
3M™ Acrylic Attachment Tapes are OEM approved and are stronger, higher performing, higher stress handling
products than other automotive attachment tapes. Typical applications include body side moldings, rocker panel moldings, claddings, wheel flares, bumper trim and other exterior and interior automotive trim attachments.
 
Benefits
 
• Overall cost improvements on production assembly 
• removes oxidization and noise concerns related to manuall fasteners
• Superior adhesion build rate to automotive substrates
• More conformable core gives excellent wet-out (tape contact) 
• Black, high-strength core maintains a thin, consistent bond line
• Easy liner release for faster run rates

Acrylic Attachment Tapes

 
3M VHB Tape is a high strength, double-sided  acrylic adhesive tape. The pressure-sensitive (PSA) creates an instant bond without any drying time required, The polymer of 3M VHB Tape is comprised of carbon-carbon chemical bonds that are highly resistant to energy. With less durable foams, exposure to heat, UV rays or chemicals can cause mechanical properties to breakdown. with 3M VHB Tape, the materials actually build strength over time, providing stronger, long lasting bond. 3M VHB tapes commonly replace manual fasteners in a wide variety of applications.
