UHMW Tape (Polyolefin – 370 Series)

UHMW Tape (Polyolefin – 370 Series) for applications involving surface wear


UHMW Tape (Polyolefin – 370 Series)

 DuraStick® UHMW-PE Tape Series is natural (opaque) in color and is produced from an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. These tapes are manufactured by applying a rubber adhesive* to an UHMW-PE film and are excellent for applications involving surface wear. Additionally, their excellent anti-stick, reduced friction and noise-reduction properties make them ideal for mechanical applications such as chute linings, conveyor systems and guide rail applications.

* Acrylic adhesive is available upon special request.

DuraStick® UHMW-PE Tape Characteristics

DuraStick® PTFE Coated Tapes are engineered to retain the distinctive properties of PTFE; however, by adding a glass fabric to the matrix, AFC is able to obtain the added benefits of dimensional stability, durability, excellent tensile strength, and extremely low elongation (<1%). The addition of an adhesive on one side eliminates the need for mechanical fastening. These tapes have received USDA approval for food processing and handling, and are FDA compliant (21 CFR177.1550). Tapes with silicone adhesive operate over a wide temperature range, -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 260°C), while tapes with acrylic adhesive operate over a narrower range of temperatures, -40°F to 350°F (-40°C to 177°C).
