UHMW Polyethylene Tape

Model # 5421

3M5421 is a 6.7 mil. ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene film with a rubber adhesive which provides an excellent abrasion resistant surface. The liner makes tape ideal for fabricating or die-cutting into various lengths and shapes. UHMW polyethylene is a thermoplastic that has a unique combination of properties which make it ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications. Within its operational temperature range, UHMW polyethylene tape can provide the following advantages: (A) Outstanding abrasion resistance will outwear many types of PTFE and other materials in sliding applications. (B) Low coefficient of friction exceed only by the PTFE’s. (C) Self-lubricating can often be used where lubrication is not possible because of contamination. (D) Sound damping high energy absorption capacity helps reduce noise levels in machinery and equipment. To obtain best tape performance, use within 12 months from date of manufacture and store under normal conditions of 60°F to 80°F and 40% to 60% relative humidity in the original carton.
