3M Select ConverterHighBond structural tapes – or 3M™ VHB™ (Very High Bond) tape – can replace bolts, rivets, spot welds, screws, nails and liquid adhesives in countless applications. HighBond tapes are a proven alternative to mechanical fasteners for a wide variety of industries. Very HighBond tape offers mess-free, convenient application to save you time, labor and money. Our very HighBond tapes offer an affordable, comparable alternative to expensive mechanical fasteners.

HighBond double-sided foam tapes offer improved elasticity and durability when compared to other conventional double-sided foam tape products. The signature acrylic core lends numerous benefits to virtually any application. Their exceptional performance stems from the acrylic core’s capability to perform as an elastic solid with viscoelastic properties. 

High Performance Tapes & AdhesivesHighBond Structural Tape is suitable for a broad range of permanent applications. For example, the level of versatility offered by this tape makes it ideal for use in construction applications where it is used to provide adhesion for building components. This solution offers many advantages, including tolerance of a broad temperature range without causing stress to bonded parts, and load/stress distribution across the full length of the bond. HighBond tape also allows for permanent, instantaneous structural bonding, shock absorption, and waterproofing.

This double-sided adhesive tape adheres to a variety of substrate types, including (but not limited to), glass, metal, plastic, as well as painted and powder coated surfaces. 


Advantages of HighBond Structural Tape

HighBond Structural Tape offers a range of advantages over competitive solutions. Some of these include:

  • Strength and durability. Other structural bonds—and even mechanical fasteners such as rivets and bolts—break down after extended wear and tear. These fewer durable solutions can be aggravating and costly for the organizations relying upon them, but HighBond Structural Tape does not break down after extended use.
  • Fast installation. The HighBond family of products allows for quick and simple installation. Alternative means of bonding, like welding, often prove time-consuming and require a specialized skillset. 
  • Reduced labor costs. With very minimal training, anyone can utilize HighBond products without devoting hours to installation. This decrease in required labor hours translates into measurable cost savings. While other adhesive options may also not require a skilled installation team, they frequently call for some sort of additional work such as drilling holes or curing adhesives. HighBond products feature simple installation and cleanup without any necessary secondary labor. 
  • Vibration dampening. These tapes offer supreme vibration dampening capabilities that measurably reduce the noise and vibration between bonded parts. Minimizing vibration ultimately contributes to longer service life for parts and components. 
  • Impact resistances. The foam used in HighBond Structural Tapes easily compresses to help mitigate the damage between substrates on impact.
  • Versatility. HighBond Structural Tape can be used on flat or curved surfaces and may be die cut into any size, shape, or profile.
  • Aesthetically pleasing. These double-sided foam tapes provide a fastening solution that is virtually invisible, making them ideal for applications requiring smooth surfaces or a clean appearance.
  • Provides corrosion resistance. HighBond Structural Tape can be used to fasten two dissimilar materials together. The separation provided by the foam tape helps to prevent galvanic corrosion caused by connecting different types of metal.
