Slick Strips Plastic Sheet and TapeSlick Strips Plastic Sheet and Tape is a product line that we have been producing for over 25 years. Slick Strips reduce friction on sticky 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.
Reduce Friction on Sticky Surfaces
Again, 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.
Mounting is done via a pressure sensitive adhesive, velcro strips, or
mechanical fasteners. It is available from credit card thickness to 6" 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 property information
highest abrasion resistance of any thermoplastic polymer
impact strength even at very low temperatures
excellent sliding material due to the low coefficient of friction
(non-caking and sticking)
chemical and stress cracking resistance
and USDA approved
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 Strip and DuraSurf 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.
