Details
  • Translucent, abrasion-resistant backing helps protect surfaces from wear
  • Low coefficient of friction for “slip plane” effect between surfaces
  • Rubber adhesive provides good initial tack for immediate bonding to material surface
  • 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

Used to protect surfaces from abrasion, 3M™ UHMW Film Tape 5423 is a thick caliper general purpose polyethylene tape that 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.

3M™ UHMW Film Tape 5423 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 (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) film tape provides good chemical resistance and excellent abrasion resistance that helps ensure a long wear life. 3M™ UHMW Film Tape 5423 is mounted on a liner, making it easy to die-cut to meet the demands of specific applications. It is ideal for applications requiring 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.
