New UHMW-PE Films

New UHMW-PE Films Target Applications Requiring Pigmentation, UV Resistance

We’re very excited to unveil three enhanced UHMW-PE products:

DW406BF – Developed for hose lining or other contact areas for potable water, pharmaceutical applications and cosmetic manufacturing, along with more traditional hydraulic and chemical hose. Pigmented black with fillers that are FDA compliant.

DW406WF – A companion material to DW406BF that’s pigmented white using FDA-compliant fillers. DW406WF is suitable for the same applications as DW406BF.

DW402UV – Developed specifically for environments where UV is present by incorporating UV-resistant fillers into natural UHMW-PE, which is not inherently tolerant of UV light.

The new films offer the same excellent physical, chemical, mechanical and abrasion resistance and a low coefficient of friction that make UHMW-PE a great choice for rubber hose, profile and belt applications in severe service environments. This extremely versatile engineering material also carries FDA and USDA compliance characteristics.

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 Narragansett, 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. Today, along with our entire staff, DeWAL has over 230 years of combined experience in the PTFE and UHMW markets.

The business started processing high quality sintered, skived PTFE films and expanded to include skived UHMW-PE films. Over the 39 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 as well as Porous PTFE and UHMW products for a wide range of industries, including:


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. DeWAL Industries is an ISO 9001:2008 Registered Company, focused on “High Quality Products” and “Innovative Solutions.” Everyone in the DeWAL family of employees is committed to help our customers compete in the ever-growing competitive world market.
