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.

- 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
- 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
- Skived PTFE Film
Skived PTFE film sheets are manufactured from virgin PTFE resins which are molded, sintered, and skived to the appropriate thickness.
- PTFE Belts
PTFE belts and belting materials are available for applications that require superior release characteristics, and thermal stability
- PTFE Tape with Silicone Adhesive
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.
