3M™ VHB™ Tape 4918 is a clear, 2.0mm thick, acrylic VHB tape. It is colourless making it ideal for bonding transparent materials or for applications where a colored bond line is unacceptable.
3M™ VHB™ Tape 4918 is a fast and easy-to-apply permanent bond that replaces screws, rivets and studs in appropriate applications. Virtually invisible when completed, this bond requires no drilling, grinding, refinishing or clean-up while at the same time spreading the stress load evenly across the joint rather than stressing several different points. The pressure sensitive adhesive creates a permanent and nearly indestructible bond on contact with no drying time and seals against water, moisture, salt and more.
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 broad range of substrates including aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, composites, plastics, acrylic, polycarbonate, ABS and painted or sealed wood and concrete. These tapes provide excellent shear strength, conformability, surface adhesion and temperature resistance. They are commonly used in applications across a variety of markets including transportation, appliances, electronics, construction, sign and display and general industrial. This tape reliably bonds a variety of materials with strength and speed for permanent applications.
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. 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.
