Shop for UHMW Tapes. UHMW tapes consist of an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene film coated with a pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. They exhibit excellent abrasion resistance and a low coefficient of friction, making them an excellent bearing or wear surface. UHMW tapes are used anywhere you need a frictionless or nonstick surface such as guide rails to reduce noise levels in glass bottling plants or desk drawers to provide smooth, friction free drawer movement. Stocked materials typically ship in 2-5 business days. Can’t find what you need or require a custom width? Get a quote.
