3M Announces South African Launch Of VHB Tape GPH Series


The 3M VHB Tape GPH series is a permanent bonding solution that can replace traditional mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives in challenging, high temperature applications. It uses a conformable, acrylic foam core to provide a good balance of strength and conformability.

The new series helps break the barriers of traditional construction elements. It adheres instantly with high initial tack on a broad range of substrates like: metal, glass, ABS plastics, rigid PVC, and polycarbonate. Application possibilities are almost endless, and users can design projects with total freedom.

The series has excellent temperature resistance and works under severe conditions. It combines high temperature resistance, and multi material bonding. Its strong bond to metals, combined with a short term temperature resistance of up to +230 degrees Celsius, make it ideal for permanent bonding even in tough high temperature applications like powder coat or liquid painting.

The soft foam provides excellent stress relaxation and gap filling. The conformability of 3M™ VHB™ Tape GPH allows for a more complete bond contact area when bonding rigid or irregular materials. With the new series, projects will move ahead quickly, improving productivity and giving users the competitive edge.

The Tapes are simple and easy to apply. The strong ‘quick stick’ technology creates high initial handling strength. 3M VHB Tapes save time, costs and space as there is no need for curing. The new series has increased initial tack over the existing range. The tapes bond on contact, making it easy to assemble, and can be cut to precise shapes and sizes for custom applications.

The product offers virtually invisible fastening that helps keep surfaces smooth and clean to enhance design and appearance. Whether its signs, POS, appliances, metal fabricated panels or many other applications, users can design and improve the durability of products while also enhancing the aesthetics.

The series sets a new benchmark for the most demanding markets, including metalworking, appliance, specialty vehicle and signage.
