|UHMW - PE Film
DeWAL Industries has led the industry in skiving thin gauge
UHMW-PE film (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene).
Employing skiving equipment developed in house, we continue to
press the envelope of technology to assure the highest quality
film available today.
DeWAL UHMW (DW 402) is used in a broad array of applications
from auto squeak and rattle tape, to chemical and hydraulic hose
inner and outer liners. UHMW exhibits excellent physical,
chemical, mechanical and abrasion resistance properties.
UHMW has very low coefficient of friction and is used in sliding
bearing applications where load and temperature are not high.
DeWAL manufactures UHMW film from 0.003” to 0.060” thick and
widths up to 50”. We find that UHMW is used in belting as a
structural support layer, and also in automotive rubber profiles
as a wear and friction reducing layer. Our DW 402 family of
products consists of natural, black and conductive black films.
Each of these have uses in all the applications listed above for
different reasons. The natural UHMW material carries with is FDA
and USDA compliance characteristics. The conductive fillers are
used to enhance static dissipation in hose and other
