VHB Tapes as Mechanical Fastener Alternative

3M™ VHB™ Tapes are easy-to-use and reliable in replacing screws, rivets, welds and other mechanical fasteners.

Vehicle engineers are tasked with assembling complex designs using weight-saving materials, such as:

  • aluminum
  • composites
  • thermoset polymers
  • traditional materials like steel and rubber

Fabrico uses 3M™ VHB™ Tapes for vehicle and transportation manufacturing applications because they are ideal for creating a virtually indestructible bond between dissimilar materials, including those subject to static and dynamic loads, shocks, and impacts. They also offer excellent waterproofing capabilities and accommodate material expansion and contraction.
