Tape UHMWPE polyethylene 1/2 in. x 12 in.

#626-5068-99

Peel and stick UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) tape 1/2 in. x 12 in. section.

UHMWPE is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It is resistant to corrosive chemicals except oxidizing acids; has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction; is self-lubricating; and is highly resistant to abrasion, in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel.

Its coefficient of friction is significantly lower than that of nylon and acetal, and is comparable to that of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, Teflon), but UHMWPE has better abrasion resistance than PTFE.
