3M™ UHMW Film Tape 5421
3M™ UHMW Film Tape 5421
3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5421 is a general purpose polyethylene tape used to protect surfaces from abrasion and creates a "slip plane" effect to allow contact without wear. This tape features a unique combination of properties that make it ideal for many tough impact wear or sliding applications.
  • Outstanding abrasion resistance helps protect surfaces from wear
  • Low coefficient of friction for “slip plane” effect between surfaces
  • Can help reduce squeaks, rattles and other noises that occur with movement
  • Used in applications where lubrication is not possible because of contamination
  • Liner makes it ideal for fabricating or die-cutting into various lengths and shapes

An Effective Solution for Many Noise and Vibration Problems
Our 3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5421 helps protect plastic and metal chutes, guide rails and containers from wear and can reduce squeaks, rattles and other noises that occur with movement of touching surfaces. The tape’s low coefficient of friction, combined with good abrasion resistance, offers an effective solution for many noise and vibration problems. The backing provides an easy clean up surface for many coating or bonding applications involving various inks, glues or sealants while the liner makes it ideal for fabricating or die-cutting into various lengths and shapes.

Recommended Applications

  • Conveyor flat guide rails
  • Spray booth liners
  • Discharge chutes
  • Tank and bin liners
  • Drawer and cabinet slides
  • Feed and grain chutes
  • Protecting aluminum sheets on stretch forming presses

3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape’s outstanding abrasion resistance helps it outwear many types of PTFE and other materials in sliding applications. And because of the tape's inherent slick backside, it can often be used where lubrication is not possible because of contamination. This slick surface tape is primarily used in Aerospace, Automotive, Printing, and MRO industries.
