UHMW – Ultra High Molecular Weight Tape

UHMW 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.

  • 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

     

  • PTFE Tape for Packaging Machinery

    PTFE tape for packaging machinery is manufactured by coating fiberglass cloth with PTFE, The material is then etched on one side which allows it to accept an adhesive system.

     

  • Skived PTFE Film

    Skived PTFE film sheets are manufactured from virgin PTFE resins which are molded, sintered, and skived to the appropriate thickness.

     

  • Laminated PTFE Fabric

    Laminated PTFE Fabric is used in a wide variety of industrial food processing applications, including contact belt grills

     

  • PFA Film

    PFA film (Perfluoroalkoxy) offers the highest performance properties of PTFE combined with the transparency and fabrication options of meltable fluoropolymers.
