3M™ RP62 VHB Tapes are double sided pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes for bonding a variety of substrates including many metals, plastic, composites, sealed wood and painted materials.
The all-acrylic construction gives 3M™ VHB RP extraordinary strength, conformability, and versatility.
The composition of 3M VHB RP resists UV and weather damage, making it a great solution for outdoor applications. This range of VHB tapes are 1.6mm thick and are capable of taking up any surface mismatch or the effects of differential expansion. Produces a strong waterproof bond on most surfaces.
For maximum bond strength the surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned with a 50:50 mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water. Ideal tape application is accomplished when temperature is between
21 °C and 38 °C and the bond can dwell for 72 hours. Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 10 °C is not recommended.
The dynamic shear properties of 3M™ RP62 VHB are appropriate to stainless steel applications and static shear qualities held the following weights for 10 000 minutes during testing:
- 22 °C: 1000 g/inch²
- 70 °C: 500 g/inch²
- 93 °C: 500 g/inch²
3M™ VHB RP bonds to a wide variety of surfaces including glass, metal, some plastics, composites, and sealed wood.
