3M RP25 VHB Tape is a double-sided permanent assembly tape which bonds high and medium surface energy substrates. Provides handling convenience, cushioning, damping, and impact resistance. RP25 comes on a paper release liner and RP25(F) comes on a polyethylene film release liner. This newer RP family of 3M VHB tapes has an all acrylic construction which gives the tape extraordinary strength, conformability and versatility. The composition of 3M VHB RP resists UV and weather damage, making it a great solution for outdoor applications. It bonds to a wide variety of surfaces, including: glass; metal; many plastics; composites; sealed wood; and painted surfaces. Rough, porous or fibered materials such as wood, particleboard, cement, etc., have an open surface and require sealing to provide a unified surface for tape bonding. Common sealing materials would include paint, varnish or other hard surface coatings.
3M VHB Tape provides the convenience and simplicity of a tape fastener and are ideal for use in many interior and exterior structural bonding applications. In many situations, they can replace rivets, spot welds, liquid adhesives and other permanent fasteners. These VHB tapes are made with acrylic foam which is viscoelastic in nature. This gives the foam energy absorbing and stress relaxing properties which provides these tapes with their unique characteristics (see http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Adhesives/Tapes/Brands/3M-VHB-Tape/ for videos showcasing its properties). The acrylic chemistry provides outstanding durability performance. The tapes have excellent durability and excellent solvent and moisture resistance.The color name grey can also be spelled as gray.
