Polyethylene with an average molar mass of 6000 kg/mol is called UHMW-PE (ultra-high-weight-molecular polyethylene). This material is characterized by the strength of its durability and the associated abrasion resistance. It provides a strong sliding effect due to its smooth surface properties. Where UHMW-PE shines through is its ability to provide long life in applications of recurring stress.
Due to tight tolerances, both OEM and Tier suppliers are faced with several challenges. Chief among them is ease of assembly with standard gap filling pads. These are often not abrasion resistant enough and are damaged during installation. In the worst case, this can mean a line stoppage.
Where standard pads fail due to high friction, our customized UHMW-PE pads stand apart. Their sliding effect aids in quick and safe installation of your head and rear lamps. With Coroplast UHMW-PE adhesive tape, we not only provide a simple spacer but an advanced assembly aid with value-added features and benefits.
We currently offer 10 OEM approved UHMW-PE tape solutions, which we are constantly developing and expanding. We vary the thickness and offer stiff or flexible versions according to customer requirements. In this way, we can apply to almost any type of surface and geometry.
Economy, durability and aesthetics: Whether in assembly or on the road, Coroplast UHMW-PE tape solutions offer a variety of benefits.
