Vhb part number

7 posts in this topic

Still trying to decide either to use rivets on my skid house or VHB tape. My dilemma is I have the rivets already, but I want to look at what it would cost if I decide to change my mind. There seems to be a fair amount of part numbers out there for VHB, what are most of you using?

 

Also, I have 1.25 aluminum studs, do you recommend 1" width?

Look up VHB alternative. There is a company called High Bond Tapes that I bought from.  I used1" x 25 mil on the seams and 1" x 45 mil on everything else. I can't comment on the performance compared to 3M but can say that the High Bond stuff sticks well enough that you would deform/destroy the aluminum before pulling the pieces apart. They'll even send you samples if you want.

The best bet for the 3M VHB is the CV62 and CV45.  Others will work, but I haven't had quite as good of results.  If you spend some time on the famous search engine, you'll find the CV line of tapes for $47/roll.

 

I love the idea of some competition for 3M, though!  They must have felt like their tape was made of diamonds, and I have no doubt that High Bond tapes has helped get the cost of the CV line down, as it is about 50-60% cheaper in the last 5 years.

This is what I used. The stuff is very sticky. Plan ahead and make sure you have the sheeting where you want it because it's not coming off.

Clean install.

Just make sure you degrease material before assembly

When I built mine a 3M rep called me to see what I wanted to do. He told me to use the VHB 5952. I tried to pull two scape pieces apart with it and destroyed the metal but not the tape. For going to the wood studs I used 3M #760 sealant. I used the sealant to hold on my alum rock guard and that is all and it is all staying together great. I would use the same materials again if I build another house.

    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
