Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene Tape. 3 mil, 5 mil, 10 mil, 15 mil and 20 mil with an aggressive acrylic adhesive. Its high chemical and abrasion resistance and extremely low coefficient of friction makes this a versatile engineering material for many severe service applications. Materials slide freely over tape surface with no slip/stick tendency. High impact strength and shock absorbing properties. Outwears TeflonTM and is a good replacement when high temperature resistance is not a requirement. Rub strips on conveyors, bearings and sliding surfaces, chutes and hopper liners, dead plates, wear pads, guide rails, furniture and drawer slides. Used primarily in automotive and mechanical applications. UHMW-3A, 5A, 10A, & 15A meets automotive specs: Chrysler MS-CH612, Ford ESB-M3G123-B, GM 6419M. UHMW-3A, 5A, 10A, & 15A are wound on a 4 mil white paper liner; UHMW-20A is wound on a blue poly liner. 3” plastic core. FILM COLOR: Natural transparent.
