UHMW Squeak Reduction Polyethylene Tape
WOD UHMW-20A Polyethylene Film Tape is a 20 mil ultra high molecular weight polyethylene film 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.
Used to protect surfaces from abrasion, WOD UHMW-20A is a thin caliper general purpose polyethylene tape that creates a "slip plane" effect to allow contact without wear. This tape features outstanding chemical resistance and a unique combination of properties that make it ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications.
WOD UHMW-20A Film Tape is often used in general industrial applications to help control squeaks and rattles due to vibration or wear of metal and plastic materials. This UHMW-20A (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) film tape provides excellent chemical resistance and abrasion resistance that helps ensure a long wear life. WOD UHMW-20A Film Tape is mounted on a liner, making it easy to die-cut to meet the demands of specific applications. It is ideal for applications requiring increased chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction and the movement of parts and/or materials. This slick surface tape is primarily used in aerospace, automotive, printing and MRO industries.
Outwears Teflon™ many times and is a good replacement when high temperature resistance is not a requirement. Applications include: rub strips on conveyors; bearings and sliding surfaces; chutes and hopper liners; dead plates; wear pads; guide rails; tool tables and fences; furniture and drawer slides/runners. UHMW polyethylene tape is used primarily in automotive and mechanical applications. Meets automotive specs: Chrysler MS-CH612, Ford ESB-M3G123-B, GM 6419M. Wound on a white paper liner. Made in the U.S.
The Science Behind
The effectiveness of WOD UHMW-20A Film Tape lies in its Ultra-High Molecular Weight polyethylene (UHMW-20A) backing. UHMW-20A 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-20A is greater than PTFE and increases as the molecular weight increases.
The extraordinary durability and versatility of UHMW-20A is used by designers and engineers in many industries worldwide. UHMW-20A 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-20A tape has superior abrasion resistance. Our exceptional science and engineering of products provide long-lasting performance and successful solutions.
