Dream, design, deliver with our 3M VHB Tape GPH-160GF, a grey, 1.6 mm thick, multi-purpose acrylic adhesive with a conformable foam core that is also resistant to high temperature. This fast and easy to use permanent bonding method provides good strength and durability. It can replace rivets, welds and screws, and offers design flexibility with its viscoelasticity. It can bond to a variety of high and medium surface energy substrates even at lower temperatures.
Convenience meets extreme bonding power 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 aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel, many composites and plastics, acrylic, polycarbonate, ABS, and painted or sealed wood. Our bonding tapes provide excellent shear strength, conformability, surface adhesion and temperature resistance. They are commonly used in applications across a variety of markets including transportation, appliance, electronics, sign and display, and general industrial. Reliably bonds a variety of materials with strength and speed for permanent applications. Recommended applications: Decorative material and trim, nameplates and logos, electronic displays, panel to frame, and stiffener to panel. Dream, design, deliver with the GPH family of 3M VHB tapes The GPH family of 3M VHB tapes utilises modified acrylic adhesive on both sides of a conformable, adhesive foam core. The unique feature combination of high temperature resistance, multi material bonding and high initial tackiness with a conformable foam core makes this family one of the most capable and well-rounded 3M VHB tapes. Its high temperature performance enables bonding of materials in applications with high long term (up to +150 degrees C) as well as short term (up to +230 degrees C) operating temperatures. It is specifically designed for being capable for bonding prior to heat cured processes such as liquid or pre powder coat paint processing. It is typically used on metal substrates such as aluminium, galvanised steel and stainless steel. Applications for this tape include stiffener and panel attachment, including assembly before paint ovens as well as decorative material and trim. Further, its capability to bond to a wide variety of substrates makes it a good fit for multi material bonding. Those substrates have a high or medium surface energy including many metals (e. g. stainless steel) and plastics (e. g. Polyamide, PMMA, ABS). 3M VHB Tape GPH-160GF is 1.6mm thick, grey and has a 3M branded red siliconised polyethylene film. An unconventional foam tape 3M invented 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, mobile 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 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. This versatile line of tapes can be used indoors or outdoors in a variety of applications, including window, door and sign assembly, electronics, 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.
