UHMW-PE specialist DeWal Industries Inc., Narragansett, R.I., is now producing 25-in.-wide UHMW-PE films just 0.002-in.-thick, believed to be the world’s thinnest. Previously, DeWal skived UHMW-PE films down to 0.003 in. thick. Its thinner DW 402 films are the result of skiving lathe and blade improvements. The films come in natural and black and can be substrates for pressure-sensitive automotive tapes or bonded as an abrasion-resistant layer onto rubber. Tel: (401) 789-9736 • www.dewal.com
