Dream, Design, Deliver with our 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tape G23F. It is a gray, 0.090 in. (2.3 mm), multi-purpose acrylic adhesive with a conformable foam core and film liner. It is commonly used for structural glazing. The fast and easy to use permanent bonding method provides high strength and long-term durability.
Convenience Meets Extreme Bonding Power
Our 3M™ VHB™ Tape consists of a durable acrylic adhesive with viscoelastic properties. This provides an extraordinarily strong double sided foam tape that adheres to a range of substrates, including aluminum, painted aluminum and glass. Our bonding tapes provide excellent strength, conformability, surface adhesion and temperature resistance. The 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tape family is used to attach glass panels to metal frames in curtain wall systems, commercial windows and doors, skylight and canopy systems replacing commonly used mechanical fasteners, gaskets and structural silicone sealants.
Attach glass panels to metal frames (structural glazing)
Dream, Design, Deliver with the 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tape Family
3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes utilize multi-purpose acrylic adhesive on both sides of a conformable, foam core. They are specifically designed for good adhesion to aluminum, painted aluminum, glass and other medium to high surface energy materials. Applications for these tapes include glazing and as an alternative to structural silicone and spacer tapes/gaskets.
An Unconventional Foam Tape
We invented 3M™ 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, cell 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 of 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. Fastening with 3M™ VHB™ Tape provides immediate handling strength and in most cases, is a quicker process than drilling, fastening, or using liquid adhesive. Our 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.
