Since 1980, 3M VHB foam tape has set the standard for bonding tape. It is one of 3M’s most popular pressure sensitive adhesive product lines and it's used in many different applications including permanent and temporary bonding, medical device component attachment, automotive attachment, gasketing, and much more. VHB tapes can create bonds strong enough to replace screws, rivets, welding and other permanent bonding solutions.
Strouse converts VHB tape and other pressure sensitive adhesives to custom sizes, shapes, and formats. Unlike other specialty materials, VHB foam tape is a more rigid and durable product which makes it easier for converters to produce accurate finished parts that meet tight tolerance standards.
As a specialty adhesive tape converter, Strouse provides rolls of tape slit to custom widths or foam tape components cut to custom shapes and dimensions. Finished components can be provided in multiple formats including finished parts wound on a roll, on singular sheets of liner, or as individual pieces with a liner on both sides to protect any potentially exposed adhesive. These formats are designed to simplify your assembly process, so whether you apply 3M VHB adhesive tape components by hand or using machine automation, Strouse can design a solution that solves a functional need but is also customized to fit in with your existing processes.
We work on projects of all types from concepts drawn on a napkin to pre-designed components already spec'd into a project. Our diverse manufacturing capability allows us to provide you the material you need in the exact size, shape, and format required for your design and process while being able to scale for production in a cost-effective manner.
VHB foam tapes are used in many industries including automotive, medical and healthcare, electronics, specialty vehicle, construction, general industrial, appliance, aerospace and others. This material is often used to permanently bond to substrates without having to use traditional fasteners that often require puncturing which creates stress points - weakening durable materials. The conformable nature of VHB makes it easy to apply to curvatures and irregular surfaces.
Strouse is a 3M Preferred Converter and can source VHB foam tape directly from 3M at discounts due to the large bulk orders we often place. We have over 75,000 rolls of material and more than 2,000 individual materials in stock at any given time. If you're looking for a specific material, just ask, but here are some of the most popular VHB foam tapes:
Strouse die cuts and converts foam tape and flexible materials to solve many different adhesive applications. Our diverse manufacturing capability allows us to provide you the material you need in the exact size, shape, and format required for your design.
