February 9, 2012 - Put through densification process, abrasion-resistant DW 400 Film provides tensile strength of 21,000 psi, particularly important for hoses, rubber belting, and chute linings. Pressure-sensitive DW 423-5EZ Tape has aggressive permanent acrylic adhesive and no release liner, while optically clear DW 424-4 Tape features permanent acrylic adhesive, and comes in rolls on release liner. DW 424-4 is suited for labeling over laminate where abrasion and chemical resistance are required.

Dewal Satisfies Demanding Requirements with 3 New UHMW-PE Products

(Archive News Story - Products mentioned in this Archive News Story may or may not be available from the manufacturer.)

DeWAL Industries
15 Ray Trainor Dr., P.O. Box 372
Saunderstown, RI, 02874

Press release date: January 31, 2012

NARRAGANSETT, RI, - DeWAL Industries has introduced two skived, thin-gage UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene) tapes and a UHMW-PE film.

Joining DeWAL's line of over one hundred UHMW-PE and PTFE tapes and films, these three new cutting edge products offer manufacturers additional opportunities for production quality and efficiency.

DW 400 is an extremely abrasion-resistant UHMW-PE film that has been put through a proprietary densification process, giving it outstanding tensile strength of 21,000 psi (144.79 mpa), particularly important for hoses, rubber belting and chute linings. It can be black or transparent.

DW 423-5EZ is an addition to the DW 423 series, used by all American auto manufacturers and hundreds of general industry manufacturers around the world. DW 423 is a pressure-sensitive UHMW-PE tape with an aggressive permanent acrylic adhesive. New DW 423-5EZ has no release liner. It has an easy unwind and no liner to discard.

DW 424-4 is an optically clear UHMW-PE tape, similar to DW 400 but with a permanent acrylic adhesive. It is offered in rolls on release liner. Like DW 400, it is often used in hostile environments. It is in particular demand for labeling over laminate where durable abrasion and chemical resistance are required. DeWAL UHMW tapes and films are used in a broad array of applications from auto squeak-and-rattle tape to chemical and hydraulic hose liners. Because UHMW has a low coefficient of friction and exhibits excellent physical, chemical, mechanical and abrasion resistance properties, it is often also used in sliding bearing applications, belting, static dissipation and friction-reduction layers.
