3M™ VHB™ Structural Metal Cladding Tape W20F is a white, 2 mm thick, high performance double-sided pressure sensitive acrylic foam tape. It’s ideal for bonding architectural metal panels.
3M™ VHB™ Structural Metal Cladding Tape W20F is our high performance double-coated pressure sensitive acrylic foam tape. It is used to attach metal sheets to metal frames in façade curtain wall systems, replacing commonly used mechanical fasteners, gaskets or structural silicone sealants. Application performance and test results demonstrate the outstanding durability and temperature performance of 3M™ VHB™ Tape acrylic foam chemistry. Each 3M VHB structural metal cladding tape application will be reviewed on a project specific basis. Application guidelines will be based upon adhesion test results generated by 3M Technical Service. These project specific application guidelines will be provided to the customer and must be followed during the bonding process. An unconventional foam tape 3M VHB Tapes were invented 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.
