Where to find VHB tape in Edmonton

I'm mounting 2 solar panels on my Bigfoot trailer but can not find the 3m VHB 4991 1 inch tape that other people have been using. Does anyone know where in Edmonton I can find this product.


Thanks

I could not find anywhere local that had this specific tape in stock. I was able to find a web site that sells it for less than half the price that I could order it locally though.

$40
Digi-Key - 3M9848-ND (Manufacturer - 1-5-4991)

I would look to an auto body supply store.
The place dealers and body shops buy supplies?

I also could not find VHB tape in Edmonton, and ended up buying it from a distributor in Toronto. It only took a day or so to get it, but they were full rolls so I now have lots left. I used the 4950 VHB tape in the 1/2 inch size, from this distributor: 3M VHB Tapes | Canadian Distributor | Toll Free 1-877-877-0873 | Buy Direct & Save | Serving Canada and USA | NHS

I attached my solar panel, which is a fairly heavy 40 watt PWX400 model, using 4 L-shaped aluminum brackets, each about 6 inches long and 1 inch wide, attached to the aluminum frame of the solar panel. The L-shaped brackets were attached to the trailer roof only with the VHB tape. I used "No More Nails" clear VHB tape to attach the panel wiring to my trailer body. However the "No More Nails" tape was rated only at 5 pounds per square inch adhesion while the 4950 VHB tape was about 50 pounds per square inch. Both have been perfect over the 5000 or so kilometres I have travelled this summer.

I ended up getting 2 rolls of the 4991 tape from the web site listed above. I have a whole roll left over that I did not end up using.
