I bought a roll of 3M VHB 4905 (Digikey part number 3M10161-ND), and I noticed that the 3M VHB logo on the tape liner doesn’t seem to match the logo on 3M or Digikey’s product images.
Images from official sources show a logo that looks like: https://i.ibb.co/THsYJmw/vhb-site.jpg . The logo on the tape I received looks like https://i.ibb.co/q7ZMMbV/vhb-mine.jpg (that’s not my tape, just the logo font and style match).
I’ve been burned before with counterfeit 3M products with terrible adhesion, so I’d like to confirm: does Digikey receive 3M products directly from 3M for distribution, and no other sources? Was there a recent branding change that explains the mismatch?
Thanks in advance!
