Die-cut parts made from 3M VHB adhesive tapeMüller Ahlhorn
In addition to a variety of stamped parts and molded parts made of non-adhesive materials, such as. B. Nomex, Mylar, Hostaphan and Pertinax, the Dr. Dietrich Müller GmbH (Ahlhorn) also punched parts from adhesive materials. The converter uses 3M VHB adhesive tape.
The 3M VHB adhesive tapes are high-performance adhesive tapes which can replace mechanical fastenings such as screws, rivets, clips and spot welding in many applications. Good immediate adhesion, direct processing options, tension-free bonding of a wide variety of materials, high temperature resistance and application-optimized die-cut parts enable a more secure, reliable and high-performance connection.
The VHB core products offer optimal adaptability to the surface to be bonded, a feature that is characteristic of this patented 3M technology. This product group is the starting point for selecting the right VHB high-performance connection system.
Applications of 3M VHB tapes
The VHB material is suitable for the largest range of surfaces (glass, metal, powder coatings and many plastics (also EP GC 203 and Pertinax)). It is used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive industry: it is used to attach trim strips and emblems in the same way as antennas.
3M VHB adhesive tape for powder coating
Since powder coating is gaining acceptance in more and more industrial areas, it is necessary to manufacture self-adhesive stamped parts for this area as well. Until now, however, joining powder-coated materials was difficult and time-consuming. With the new 3M VHB adhesive tapes specially developed for powder-coated surfaces, materials can be connected quickly and securely.
In addition, there is no need for complex surface pretreatments, such as priming or roughening the surface to be bonded. Additional advantages of these new 3M adhesive tapes are the high instant adhesive strength and the optimal adaptability to the powder-coated surface to be bonded.
