Dream, Design, Deliver with 3M™ VHB™ Tape 4908. It is a clear, 0.8 mm thick, general purpose acrylic adhesive on both sides of a firm, foam core. It can replace rivets, welds and screws. The fast and easy to use permanent bonding method provides high strength and long-term durability. It offers design flexibility with its viscoelasticity and powerful ability to bond to a variety of surfaces. It is colourless making it ideal for bonding transparent materials or for applications where a coloured bond line is unacceptable.

3M™ VHB™ Tape 4908P is in the 4910 family of 3M VHB tapes. It uses a general purpose adhesive and is commonly used in applications to join transparent material or where clear or colourless tape is preferred. Our tape is specifically designed for good adhesion to metal, glass and plastics, such as polycarbonate, and acrylic.

Recommended applications: Joining transparent material, mount backlit translucent signs, edge-bond resin filled glass, metal, glass and high surface energy (HSE) substrates, decorative material and trim, nameplates and logos, panel to frame, and stiffener to panel.

An unconventional foam tape
3M invented VHB Tapes 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.
