Slick Strips UHMW Adhesive Backed

SlickStrips.com - Our Plastic Sheet and Tape Reduces Friction on Sticky Surfaces

Slick Strips UHMW Sheet and Tape is a product line that we have been producing for over 25 years. Slick Strips reduce friction on all surfaces. Wherever you need to increase sliding action on metal, wood, concrete, tile, stone or other surfaces - you're going to love what Slick Strips do for you.

Brilliant! The idea is that you either put the "Slick Strip" on the ITEM or the SURFACE to create slickness. If you put the Slick Strip on BOTH, you get extreme slickness. It's also great as a protector, bumper, industrial cutting surface, wear protector, chute liner..... and is similar to the material on a ski or snowboard bottom (known as P-tex).

Slick Strip Features:
  • The highest abrasion resistance of any thermoplastic polymer 
  • Outstanding impact strength even at very low temperatures 
  • An excellent sliding material due to the low coefficient of friction 
  • Self-lubricating (non-caking and sticking) 

 

  • Sound dampening properties 
  • Good chemical and stress cracking resistance 
  • Easily machined 
  • FDA and USDA approved
  • The natural color is white, and colors are available, as well as printing on the surface. Additives can be for UV, oil filled, anti-stat for electronics, conductive for electrical apps, ceramic filling, etc etc.
Slick Strip Application :
  • Mounting is done via a pressure sensitive adhesive, velcro strips, or mechanical fasteners. It is available from business card thickness to 8" thick. Widths are from 1/2" to 24" in the thin guage, and up to 48"+ on thicker.
  • The natural color is white, and colors are available, as well as printing on the surface. Additives can be for UV, oil filled, anti-stat for electronics, conductive for electrical apps, ceramic filling, etc etc.

 

  • We can machine it, saw it, and even die-cut thinner pieces.
  • It's also great as a protector, bumper, industrial cutting surface, wear protector, chute liner..... and is similar to the material on a ski or snowboard bottom (known as P-tex).
  • We have lined the inside of cement mixers, lined gravel chutes in mining operations, put wear strips under moving chains, bumpers on the corners of storage facilities, and even created a dock bumper for aircraft carriers at North Island Naval Air Station in San Diego (this was 6" thick, 24" high, and well, as long as a carrier).

Slick Strip has a long list of properties that make it ideal for applications in a wide range of fields. It combines the greatest impact strength of any thermoplastic, with a low coefficient of friction and tremendous abrasion resistance. It is extremely stable in temperatures ranging from 220o F, down to cryogenic lows. It is an excellent electric insulator, and is easily machined, punched, sawed, and drilled.

The low coefficient of friction, tremendous abrasion resistance, and non-absorbing nature of Slick Strip makes for an outstanding running surface for snowboards and skis. Its impact resistance and machinability allow for Slick Strip to be used as tip fill and sidewalls, and the bondability and light weight makes for a great top sheet. Similar requirements are creating new opportunities for Slick Strip in the wakeboard and kite board industries.

Slick Strips can be supplied with an adhesive on one side for use as a buzz, squeak and rattle tape (BSR) in the automotive industry. These tapes are also used in the furniture, appliance and material handling industries. Slick Strip tapes and films can be die cut into washers, gaskets and various other wear parts for use in machinery components, and countless other anti-friction / anti-wear applications.

UHMWPE - Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is an extremely high abrasion resistant material. The molecular weights range between 3.1 to 5.67 million. UHMW resembles other polyethylenes in superficial characteristics such as texture, color, stiffness, weight and general apperance, but UHMW is superior in physical and mechanical strength. HDPE is not a substitute for UHMWPE - UHMW was designed specifically for wear guides and slides, as well as for bumpers and deflectors.

UHMW will not encourage growth of bacteria or fungus, is self-lubricating, and it meets FDA requirements for direct food contact. It also meets USDA requirements in specific applications.
