A 3M™ Hand Tape Applicator can help improve the placement of 3M™ VHB™ Tape in a number of different applications. Typical applications where these tools have been identified to provide significant value to installers/operators include: panel-to-post and panel-to-frame (transportation, signage, structural glazing, elevator, etc.), stiffener bonding (architectural panel, appliance, signage, HVAC, elevator, etc.) and other applications. The 3M™ Hand Tape Applicator is available in standard sizes (1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4", 7/8”, 1” and 1-1/8”) and can be customized to accommodate the customer’s application (inset tape, centering of tape, straddle applicators, etc.).
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 windows, 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.
