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.

You may also need:
- High Modulus PTFE Tape
High modulus PTFE tape has less elongation and greater tensile strength than plain skived PTFE tape.
- PTFE Roll Coverings
Better than PTFE spray coating. Better than shrink-fit tubing, Non-stick PTFE roll coverings fight residue build-up on flat surface rolls
- PFA Film
PFA film (Perfluoroalkoxy) offers the highest performance properties of PTFE combined with the transparency and fabrication options of meltable fluoropolymers.
- Metal Detectable PTFE Tape
Metal detectable PTFE tape is ideal for food manufacturers who are packaging their products in poly bags. Tape that contaminates packaged food is detected
- Skived PTFE Film
Skived PTFE film sheets are manufactured from virgin PTFE resins which are molded, sintered, and skived to the appropriate thickness.
