3M RP25 VHB Tape is a double-sided permanent assembly tape which bonds high and medium surface energy substrates. Provides handling convenience, cushioning, damping, and impact resistance. RP25 comes on a paper release liner and RP25(F) comes on a polyethylene film release liner. This newer RP family of 3M VHB tapes has an all acrylic construction which gives the tape extraordinary strength, conformability and versatility. The composition of 3M VHB RP resists UV and weather damage, making it a great solution for outdoor applications. It bonds to a wide variety of surfaces, including: glass; metal; many plastics; composites; sealed wood; and painted surfaces. Rough, porous or fibered materials such as wood, particleboard, cement, etc., have an open surface and require sealing to provide a unified surface for tape bonding. Common sealing materials would include paint, varnish or other hard surface coatings.
3M VHB Tape provides the convenience and simplicity of a tape fastener and are ideal for use in many interior and exterior structural bonding applications. In many situations, they can replace rivets, spot welds, liquid adhesives and other permanent fasteners. 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 (see http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Adhesives/Tapes/Brands/3M-VHB-Tape/ for videos showcasing its properties). The acrylic chemistry provides outstanding durability performance. The tapes have excellent durability and excellent solvent and moisture resistance.
The color name grey can also be spelled as gray.

VHB is the best! With that being said, this supplier needs to get their act together. Wrapping adhesives in plastic (saran) wrap, IS NOT acceptable. The cling wrap is thin and sticks to the sides of the roll and creates a huge mess trying to get all of the cling wrap off. Additionally there was no date code and the roll was not in a moisture bag or a bag of any kind. ALL ADHESIVES ARE MOISTURE SENSITIVE AND HAVE SHELF LIFE. Will be buying VHB from a different supplier next time. My roll had deformed and looked like it was exposed to too much heat
This tape does what it suppose to. Don't expect crazy stickiness but, on the other hand, it can be readjusted of needed. It is foamy and stretchy, so, bring sharp knife for better precision when you will cut it.

This stuff is amazing. I'm not sure what else there is to say. 3M pulled off some real wizardry with this VHB stuff.
I use this for hobby applications, including quadcopters -- attaching flight controllers, cameras, etc. Recently, lost a small drone in a tree in my yard. It came out of the tree in a windstorm after a month of Pacific Northwest weather. The tiny piece of VHB tape used to hold a camera on top of the drone was still solid.
I've also used this tape to help my son put window louvers on his car. Clean and dry the glass really well before use, and this stuff ain't coming off.
Anywhere, any time you need to permanently affix something, this is the stuff.
