3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5425 features an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene backing coated with a special acrylic adhesive that is resistant to oil and many solvents. It can be used for many tough impact wear or sliding applications and bonds best to high surface energy materials.
High solvent and oil resistant acrylic adhesive bonds best to high surface energy materials
Low coefficient of friction for “slip plane” effect between surfaces
Outstanding abrasion resistance helps protect surfaces from wear
Help reduce squeaks, rattles and other noises that occur with movement
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 5425 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. Liner makes it ideal for fabricating or die-cutting into various lengths and shapes.
Abrasion protection for rubber fuel cells
Gaskets exposed to many corrosive chemicals
Spiral wrap wire harness to resist hydraulic fluids
Dissimilar metal separation to help prevent wear and chemical corrosion
Excellent for wear surfaces where transparency is needed
Guide rails and chutes requiring a more durable, solvent resistant slide surface
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.
