Not good

Bought three sheets of this product, 3mm thick.
I expected to be very low friction but it is not.
Any piece of wood will slide a lot better on a Mdf. For the price I thought I was buying something like Uhmw materials or at least, something close.
It's a cheep material look-a-like instead. It will rough up as soon as you slide something on it and it will loose that little bit of non-friction propriety which I was already disappointed about. I buy al lot form Axminister and I'm very happy with its products and service but I need to be honest. This was a waste of money for me.

Not the advertised material

The photographs online show Slick UHMW sheet - which used to be what Axminster supplied. What arrived was HDPE sheet - a completely different material. HDPE is low friction, but nothing like as low as UHMW and less expensive. To avoid confusion, the photograph should be changed and the material stated in the description.

Low friction sheet

I recently decided to make my own router table and was looking for something to cover the top and fence with and after much searching decided to go with these sheets and now the wood glides over the plastic. would recommend to anybody.

Slick low friction tape

The tape is supplied rolled in a box. I bought 4 boxes and found that due to the fact that it is supplied rolled the tape had quite a set in it when I wanted to apply it. When applying the first two tapes I clamped them flat with a batten. On the second two I used a hair dryer to release the tension in the tape before applying, this appeared to work better. Reading the instructions none of this should be necessary. I kept the tape in the house untill use so the problem was not due to a cold workshop.
