UHMW Polyethylene Tape

3M™ UHMW polyethylene tapes are ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications

Image of 3M's UHMW Polyethylene Tape 3M UHMW polyethylene tapes are film coated with a rubber adhesive which provides an excellent abrasion resistant surface. These tapes feature a unique combination of properties that make them ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications. UHMW polyethylene tapes are film coated with an acrylic adhesive to help control squeaks and rattles due to vibration or wear of metal and plastic materials.

The effectiveness of 3M UHMW-PE film tape lies in its ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) backing. UHMW-PE is a thermoplastic that has a unique combination of properties, such as exceptional hardness and low surface energy. The ultra-high molecular weight of this tape significantly reduces friction to create an effective solution for anti-stick and easy-release requirements. The abrasion resistance of UHMW-PE is greater than PTFE and increases as the molecular weight increases.

The extraordinary durability and versatility of UHMW-PE are used by designers and engineers in many industries worldwide. UHMW-PE based products offer a host of exceptional attributes that include high abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction and one of the highest impact strength ratings of any thermoplastic. These attributes make them ideal for tough impact wear or sliding applications. The low coefficient of friction characteristic is surpassed only by PTFE; however, UHMW-PE tape has superior abrasion resistance. 3M's exceptional science and engineering of products provide long-lasting performance and successful solutions.
