3M Introduces the VHB™ Tape LVO Family

Thomco is pleased to announce the expansion of our 3M tape solution options to include the VHBTM Tape LVO Family.

The VHBTM Tape LVO Family addresses two critical interior application concerns: odor and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This family of tapes is engineered to deliver a markedly lower odor profile, tested to the stringent VDA270 standard. This advancement ensures that engineers and manufacturers can no longer choose between performance and a pleasant working or living environment.

The 3M™ VHB™ Tape LVO Family boasts an 85% reduction in VOCs and an 80% reduction in fog emissions compared to common acrylic foam tapes. This significant reduction helps meet stringent regulatory requirements and aligns with broader sustainability goals.

Additionally, the 3M™ VHB™ Tape LVO Family has a black core and is designed to excel in bonding low surface energy (LSE) substrates, offering durability, strength, and versatility. It is also the first product in the 3M™ VHB™ portfolio to meet FDA regulatory requirements for indirect food contact applications per 21 CFR 175.105.

Common industrial areas for application include:

  • Appliances 
  • Architectural Applications 
  • Commercial and Residential Floor Covering 
  • Electronics
  • Food and Beverage Applications
  • Solar Panels
  • General Industrial 
  • Medical Devices
