3M™ VHB™ Tape GPH-160GF is a 0.062 in (1.6 mm) thick gray double-sided acrylic foam tape with a red polyethylene film liner. The conformable foam provides good contact between substrates even when they are slightly mismatched.
Can replace traditional mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives in challenging, high temperature applications
Assembly of components before powder coat or liquid paint processes
High operating temperature applications
Stiffener to panel
Panel to frame
Gray, 62 mil (1.6 mm), acrylic adhesive with a conformable, acrylic foam core.
Fast and easy-to-use permanent bonding method provides high strength and long-term durability
Can replace mechanical fasteners (rivets, welding, screws) or liquid adhesives in appropriate applications
Excellent high temperature resistance (short term 450˚F) allows for bonding prior to powder coat or liquid painting processes
Using tapes could eliminate drilling, grinding, refinishing, screwing, welding
Virtually invisible fastening helps keep surfaces smooth; no unsightly rivet heads or weld marks
Closed-cell construction allows both bonding and sealing
Allows the use of thinner, lighter weight and dissimilar materials
Pressure sensitive adhesive bonds on contact to provide immediate handling strength
