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.

- 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.
- 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 Film
Skived PTFE film sheets are manufactured from virgin PTFE resins which are molded, sintered, and skived to the appropriate thickness.
- 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
- High Modulus PTFE Tape
High modulus PTFE tape has less elongation and greater tensile strength than plain skived PTFE tape.
