45 Mil Very High Bond Strength Broad Range Adhesive
VHB Tape 4952 is a soft, extra conformable, double-sided, pressure-sensitive, closed-cell acrylic foam tape with a polyethylene film liner.
The foam carrier used provides the highest level of conformability to irregular surfaces, while maintaining high internal strength.
It is especially suitable for applications where one, or both, substrates are flexible, although it also works well with rigid substrates
With a modified acrylic adhesive, 5952 bonds to many high surface energy (adhesive friendly) substrates - such as metals, glass, painted/sealed wood or concrete, painted or powder-coated surfaces
It also bonds to certain medium surface energy plastics such as rigid PVC, polystyrene, ABS, acrylics, and polycarbonates.
Do not use on platicized vinyl
Among 3M's VHB tapes, 4952 adheres to the broadest range of substrates.
VHB Tapes provide the convenience and simplicity of a fastener in tape form, and are ideal for use in many interior and exterior bonding applications.
They form instant permanent bonds with no drying time, no mess, and are a convenient and proven alternative to screws, rivets, and other mechanical fasteners.

Heavy on the technical side...
3M&trade VHB Tapes are high-strength, structural bonding tapes.
They are a proven and convenient alternative to screws, rivets, welds, and other mechanical fasteners.
Unlike screws or rivets - which join materials at a single point - high-strength bonding tape permanently adheres one substrate to another while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint.
The tape's flexibility allows it to compensate for differential thermal expansion between dissimilar materials so they can be bonded with confidence.
Once materials are joined with VHB&trade Tape a virtually indestructible "weld" is created.
Very High Bonding tapes are comprised of closed cell foam impregnated with pressure sensitive adhesive on both sides.
Skyscrapers, cell phones, electronic highway signs, refrigerators, marine electronics, architecturalwindows, recreational vehicles and trailers all of these rely on specialty bonding tape for one ormore steps in the assembly, mounting, fastening and sealing process.
