3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 9324 is a black UHMW polyethylene film tape with an acrylic adhesive. It is commonly used to control squeaks and rattles due to vibration or wear of metal and plastic parts. 3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 9324 is a black colored version of 3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 5430.
UHMW polyethylene backing provides highly effective solution to noise and vibration
Excellent adhesion to many painted metal and plastic surfaces
Abrasion resistant backing provides long wear life and will outwear most PTFE tapes in sliding applications
High-tack acrylic adhesive provides strong initial bond for fast results and less down time
Low coefficient of friction for applications requiring slick surface
Helping Make Life a bit More Peaceful
3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 9324 is often used in the automotive industry to help control squeaks and rattles due to vibration or wear of metal and plastic materials. This 6.5 mil UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) film tape provides excellent chemical and abrasion resistance, a low coefficient of friction, and is self-lubricating to help ensure a long wear life. The film backing not only reduces friction, but helps with sound management, squeak and rattle prevention and noise reduction. 3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 9324 is mounted on a 55 lb. densified kraft paper liner, making it easy to die-cut to meet the demands of specific applications.

Noise reduction between rim fascia and painted metal
Noise reduction on doors
Industrial sliding or wear applications requiring very high adhesion
The Science Behind Our Tape
The effectiveness of 3M™ Squeak Reduction Tape 9324 lies in its Ultra-High Molecular Weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) backing. UHMW-PE 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, among other applications. The abrasion resistance of UHMW-PE is greater than PTFE and increases as the molecular weight increases.
The extraordinary durability and versatility of UHMW-PE is used by designers and engineers in many industries worldwide. UHMW-PE 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 characteristics is surpassed only by PTFE; however, UHMW-PE tape has superior abrasion resistance. For anti-stick/release applications, UHMW-PE tapes provide an easy-to-clean surface for many coating or bonding applications involving various inks, glues or sealantsAcross many industries, UHMW-PE tape helps protect plastic and metal chutes, guide rails and containers from wear. The low coefficient of friction quality combined with its abrasion resistance can provide an effective solution for many noise and vibration issues. Our exceptional science and engineering products provide long-lasting performance and successful solutions.
