Double side tape

Post by Ed Brock »



Help!!
Some where (on this site??) I saw some information about a 3M double sided tape. There were 3 letters in the name. I think. Something like D-M. H
Does anyone have any information on this??
Thanks Ed

You must be referring to 3M VHB. I use 4611 on all steel and plastic chromed trim and covers, only needs a bit.

Front crank cover



and side covers.

If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

X2

I think it's called Very High Bond.
You can increase adheasion using a prep or primer they sell.
Amazon sells it. I've used it, once stuck it is stuck.

Maybe they'll develop a EHB ort Extremely High Bond?

Thanks. Home depot! Great information.
We could get over the top with the acronyms. Maybe, TVB2WTEI. (the very best 2 way tape ever invented)

Yup, VHB is the stuff. I use it ALL the time - it basically stays put no matter what, and fastens things permanently - unless you want to remove it, in which case it is possible, with no goo or adhesive left behind. Love it!

I also use 3M Adhesion Promoter if I REALLY want something to stick. It increases the adhesion of the VHB tape.

Preparation is important: clean the surfaces to be bonded with rubbing alcohol first, to make sure there is no grease.

Requiring the comment that "we need a like button", I know I'm new to this site, but I found the like button. Just type in LIKE and push a button.
Happy Turkey Day folks.

That VHB tape is what came with the Innovv K2 cameras, right? How are they holding up? Did you use the adhesion promoter for those?

I don't recall if the K2 came with VHB tape or not (it's been a year since I installed it). I know it came with mechanical mounts.

In any case, yes, I used VHB to mount the cameras (either supplied VHB, or what I already had on-hand, I don't recall). Neither camera has budged since I installed them, and yes, I did use adhesion promoter (definitely did not come with the kit - I keep some on-hand).
