3M 5952 Heavy Duty Mounting VHB Tape is black, double-coated VHB adhesive tape with an acrylic foam core. A modified acrylic adhesive is on both sides of very conformable foam which provides adhesion to the broadest range of substrates/surfaces, including most powder coated paints. Comes on a red film release liner.
3M VHB Tape provides the convenience and simplicity of a tape fastener and are ideal for use in many interior and exterior bonding applications. In many situations, they can replace rivets, spot welds, liquid adhesives and other permanent fasteners. Recommended to use 4 square inches of 5952 VHB tape for every 1 pound of load; although rough surfaces may require additional tape. These VHB tapes are made with acrylic foam which is viscoelastic in nature. This gives the foam energy absorbing and stress relaxing properties which provides these tapes with their unique characteristics. The acrylic chemistry provides outstanding durability performance and the tapes have excellent durability and excellent solvent and moisture resistance.

Make sure that you know exactly where you are going to place this tape because once it's down, it's down. They glue window glass into window frames on skyscrapers with this stuff. We use it to fasten parts together for products that we build. The surfaces must be clean and dry. They need not be glass smooth as the foam will take up a little surface imperfection. The last order never arrived but I was promptly refunded and ordered again.
Purchased to secure a piece of trim back onto a truck. Once you get the tape off, it is easy to apply. Getting the outside tape off was the hardest part. It also filled a gap so it was perfect for this application.
Extremely sticky. Can withstand considerable pulling force. I use this for semi permanent affixing metal parts.
