3M5423 is an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene film coated with a rubber adhesive which provides an excellent abrasion resistant surface. 5423 tape is a thick caliper UHMW polyethylene tape for extended service life as a protective surface against extreme wear. 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 exceeded 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.
