Agru America

The Microspike, also available in low-density polyethylene (LDPE), has smooth edges to enable wedge welds to be made between adjacent sheets, according to the company. Features include standard 29-inch-diameter rolls with two slings each, special roll lengths available upon request, and a 40-foot standard container and 48-foot flatbed, each with a 12-roll capacity.
