Dream, Design, Deliver with 3M™ VHB™ Tape RP+040GF. This gray 0.4mm (16 mil) tape features a multi-purpose acrylic adhesive with a conformable foam core. It can replace rivets, welds and screws. The fast and easy-to-use permanent bonding method provides high strength and long-term durability. It offers design flexibility with its viscoelasticity and powerful ability to bond a variety of surfaces, with temperature resistance of 230°C (450°F) for up to 4 hours.
No-fuss permanent bonding for everyday applications Our 3M™ VHB™ RP+ Tapes consist 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 and ABS. These bonding tapes provide excellent shear strength, conformability, adhesion and temperature resistance. They are commonly used in applications across a variety of industries including transportation, appliances, construction, sign and display and general industrial. 3M™ VHB™ Tape reliably bonds a variety of materials with strength and speed for permanent applications. Recommended Applications Decorative material and trim Nameplates and logos Panel to frame Stiffener to panel Dream, Design, Deliver with the RP+ Family of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes The RP+ family of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes utilizes modified acrylic adhesive on both sides of a conformable, adhesive foam core. The combination of strength, conformability and adhesion makes this family one of the most capable and well-rounded 3M™ VHB™ Tapes. It is specifically designed for good adhesion to high and medium surface energy plastics, metals and glass. Applications for this tape include stiffener attachment to panels, signage and decorative muntin bar attachment to windows. An Unconventional Foam Tape We invented 3M™ VHB™ Tapes in 1980 as the first of their kind. These unique tapes combine conformability with a strong, permanent bond. The result is a family of extraordinarily strong tapes that adhere to a broad range of substrates. 3M™ VHB™ Tape is a proven alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners. Skyscrapers, cell phones, electronic highway signs, refrigerators, architectural windows and more all rely on this specialty bonding tape for one or more steps in the assembly, mounting, fastening and sealing process. This trusted and reliable tape offers a consistent bond, outstanding durability and excellent solvent and moisture resistance. 3M stands by all of its products and is there to provide you with design guidance and technical support when you need it. Proven Reliability from 3M™ VHB™ Tapes 3M™ VHB™ Tape offers a durable bond in a way that mechanical fasteners can't. This tape enhances the appearance of finished goods by eliminating rivets and screws while providing immediate handling strength. In most cases, fastening with 3M™ VHB™ Tape is a quicker process than drilling, fastening, or using liquid adhesive. Our versatile line of tapes can be used indoors or outdoors in a variety of applications, including window, door and sign assembly, construction and countless other industrial applications. Chemically resistant as well as UV and temperature stable, 3M™ VHB™ Tape can withstand the heat of Dubai to the cold of Canada. The unique acrylic chemistry is extremely durable and resistant to change over time, making this a long-lasting and powerful tape you can trust. Bringing Better Ideas to the Surface through Science and Innovation In our 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division, we apply the science of adhesion to deliver innovative solutions that improve the design and manufacturing processes of companies around the world.
