Bonding Tapes: A Proven Alternative to Screws, Rivets and Welds

When most people think of adhesive tapes their first thought is often of the sticky tape or foam bonding tape used in the office or at home, but industrial acrylic foam tapes are in a different league entirely.

VHB bonding tape is an all-acrylic, foamed, pressure-sensitive adhesive (not to be confused with the light-duty double-coated foam tapes) and is a proven high-strength alternative to screws, rivets, welds and other forms of mechanical fasteners. Its viscoelastic properties absorb shock and distribute stress evenly for bonding power that helps eliminate mechanical fastening in many jobs. 

Acrylic foam tape also offers the real advantage of instant bonding on contact with no drying time making it a faster and more cost effective option.

As well as eliminating operations such as drilling, grinding, refinishing, screwing and welding, acrylic foam tape offers a virtually invisible fastening that helps keep surfaces smooth and clean with no unsightly rivet heads, weld marks or screw heads to be seen.  It's no wonder the the popularity of acrylic foam tape continues to grow as new applications arise or new product innovations become available.
