UHMW Tape (Ultra High Molecular Weight Tape) is a linear polymer with a pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive on one side. The UHMW film itself has a molecular weight 10 times that of conventional high density polyethylene resins. This allows for high abrasion resistance, outstanding impact strength, moderate chemical resistance, extreme slickness and superior sound dampening characteristics.
In addition, UHMW tape is more abrasion and puncture resistant than PTFE films. It is the ideal material for applications requiring high slip and durability.
The tape is supplied with a high tack acrylic, or natural rubber adhesive on one side.
