3M™ VHB™ Acrylic Foam Tape 4950F
- Fast and easy-to-use permanent bonding method provides high strength and long-term durability.
- Pressure sensitive adhesive bonds on contact to provide immediate handling strength.
- Virtually invisible fastening keeps surfaces smooth.
- White, 1.1 mm, general purpose adhesive on both sides of firm type foam bonds to many high surface energy substrates.
- Can replace mechanical fasteners (rivets, welding, screws) or liquid adhesives: Eliminate drilling, grinding, refinishing, screwing, welding and clean-up.
- High dynamic stress absorption reduces vibration and impact stress.
- Creates a permanent seal against water, moisture and more.
- Allows the use of thinner, lighter weight and dissimilar materials.
3M VHB Tape 4950 replaces screws, rivets and studs to permanently adhere one substrate to another while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint. 3M VHB tape has general purpose adhesive on both sides of firm type foam. It is white, 1.1 mm thick and bonds to many high surface energy substrates.
The 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, galvanized 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, Stiffener to panel Dream, Design, Deliver with the 4950 Family of 3M VHB Tapes 3M VHB Tape 4950 belongs to the 4950 family of 3M VHB Tapes. This family has general purpose adhesive on both sides of firm type foam. This family is typically used on metal, glass and high surface energy plastic substrates. These unique tapes combine conformability with a strong, permanent bond. The result is 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. 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, 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.
