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.

An Effective Solution for Many Noise and Vibration Problems
3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5425 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-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) film tape provides excellent chemical resistance and abrasion resistance that helps ensure a long wear life. 3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5425 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.

Recommended Applications
  • Conveyor guide rails and chutes
  • Spray booth liners
  • Tank and bin liners
  • Drawer and cabinet slides
  • Protecting aluminum sheets on stretch forming presses

The Science Behind Our Tape
The effectiveness of 3M™ UHMW-PE Film Tape 5421 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. 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 characteristic is surpassed only by PTFE; however, UHMW-PE tape has superior abrasion resistance. Our exceptional science and engineering of products provide long-lasting performance and successful solutions.
