How Are Ceramic Pictures Secured?
of our customers wonder how these ceramic pictures are secured to the memorial or surface of their
choosing. Whether ordered as a stand alone ceramic picture or with
a frame they are shipped with a unique adhesive bonding tape called VHB Tape which is manufactured by the 3M company.
Tough applications with proven performance
over 20 years, 3M VHB Tape has been making a name for itself among
design and manufacturing engineers. Now imagine where you can go
in a world without rivets, screws, and welding. Your designs would
be sleeker: seamless. Major equipment could be eliminated: labor
and materials could cost less. And the finished product, overall,
could be lighter, quieter, and more efficient. Best of all, you
would be freed from the restraints of working with mechanical fasteners.
You could design projects the way you want. You could join dissimilar
materials and set new standards for strength and aesthetics. Impossible?
Hardly, you can dream it, design it, and produce it - just the way
you want it - by replacing your mechanical fasteners with 3M VHB
tape. Flexible, durable, versatile, and strong. 3M VHB tape will
allow you to conceive projects you care about... and achieve results
you’ve dreamed about.
What makes 3M VHB Tape so extraordinary?
first thing you notice about 3M VHB tape is the sheer beauty it
affords. Your completed projects look better than they did on paper:
there are no visual interruptions for screws, rivets, welding, or
any type of fastener. But beauty is not the only advantage.
VHB tape consistently outperforms traditional fasteners in these
and Durability: 3M VHB tape’s all acrylic construction provides
strength and durability in extreme applications. VHB tape resists
stress, fatigue, vibration, heat, cold, temperature cycling, moisture,
solvents, and UV light. Unlike mechanical fasteners which concentrate
stress, 3M VHB tape provides a continuous bond - distributing stress
along the entire surface.
and Seals: 3M VHB tape’s foam is 100 percent closed cell; as it
bonds it creates a durable shield. Liquids can be sealed in or out.
And a protective barrier is formed which resists stress and fatigue.
An important property of 3M VHB tape is viscoelasticity. Visco-
for viscous flow of 3M VHB into the microstructure of the substrates
that are being bonded and -elasticity for the elastic nature of
3M VHB tape. Viscoelastic materials have the unique ability for
energy absorption and stress relaxation, both of which are important
for dynamic strength and vibration damping.
