Overview Very high bond acrylic tapes create an instant, permanent pressure sensitive bond between a wide variety of substrates such as metals, glass, and plastics.

Very high bond tapes are formulated to withstand a wide range of weathering and temperature conditions without losing adhesion. Like structural adhesives, very high bond tapes can replace rivets or mechanical fasteners.

Along with excellent moisture and weather resistance very high bond acrylic tapes:

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Dampen vibration
  • Easier to work with than liquid adhesives
