|The history of
Hugo DiClemente and Edward Walsh established DeWAL Industries in
1974 to process PTFE resin into film that was seen as the
best-made product on the market. Both Hugo and Ed had worked
together previously and already had over 20 years of experience
under their belt.
The original company, located in Hope, RI, employed 3 people,
while today DeWAL has grown to over 150 employees in
Saunderstown, RI. Hugo and Ed always wanted to keep success in
the family and today, DeWAL is run by their 4 sons: David &
Warren DiClemente along with Eric & Ned Walsh.
The business started processing high quality skived PTFE and
UHMW-PE films. Over the 31 years since the beginning in 1974,
DeWAL has stayed in the forefront of technology in the
fluoropolymer products markets. We not only skive the highest
quality PTFE and UHMW films, we also offer a wide array of
Pressure Sensitive Tapes, extruded / unsintered PTFE films along
with highly technical Expanded PTFE and Porous UHMW products.
Over this time DeWAL has never lost focus on the products that
the company started with and is considered an industry leader in
thin film technology.

on “High Quality Products” and “Innovative Solutions”. Everyone
