Low Friction UHMW Tape | Andrew Roberts Inc

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.

UHMW Tape

UHMW tape is available in widths up to 24″.

 

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.

  • PTFE Belts

    PTFE belts and belting materials are available for applications that require superior release characteristics, and thermal stability

     

  • 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

     

  • Skived PTFE Tape

    These tapes are used widely on printing and duplicating machinery to help paper slide while remaining resistant to chemicals and ink.

     

  • 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.
