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.
Our UHMW tape is also FDA compliant and suitable for temperatures up to 225°F (107°C) The tape is supplied with a high tack acrylic, or natural rubber adhesive on one side.

You may also need:
- PFA Film
PFA film (Perfluoroalkoxy) offers the highest performance properties of PTFE combined with the transparency and fabrication options of meltable fluoropolymers.
- M-Boss PTFE Fabric
M-Boss PTFE fabric, when installed on heat sealers embosses a readily visible heat seal on bags and films. Lasts longer than porous grade fabric
- PTFE Zone Tape
PTFE zone tape is primarily used in applications where it is not desirable for adhesive to come in contact with a heating element.
- Extruded Oriented High Modulus PTFE Tape
Extruded oriented high modulus PTFE tape. Known as “the orange tape”, 2285 is the ideal tape for protecting extrusion and laminating equipment.
- Skived PTFE Tape
These tapes are used widely on printing and duplicating machinery to help paper slide while remaining resistant to chemicals and ink.
