Face Shields



We have shifted part of our production capacity to manufacture face shields for medical workers and first responders. We deal with optically clear plastics as part of our solar business and have extensive experience with these materials. 


Our mold partner, PDP, in Newton, Iowa, has donated the mold tooling, and we have donated the die-cut tooling to make these face shields. 


The original design came from Erik Cederberg / 3DVerkstan in Sweden as part of the response to COVID-19. They gave global permission to manufacture the shield since it has become a critical item in short supply. 


This unit has been approved in Iowa by University of Iowa Dentistry, McFarland Clinic, Story County Hospital, Story County Sheriff Department, and Green Hills Retirement Community.


Shields are being offered in 5mil and 7mil thicknesses.


Pricing is $2.50 for 5mil orders under 100 units and $2.00 for orders over 100 units. 


Pricing is $3.00 for 7mil orders under 100 units and $2.50 for orders over 100 units.

* 7mil features an anti-scratch, anti-glare material.


Pricing subject to availability and changing costs of raw materials. Orders must be in 25-lot sizes. Lead times are roughly three business days, depending on quantity.


If planning to pick up from our facility at 1287 XE Place Ames, Iowa 50014, please select the "Picking Up" version of the product to remove the shipping cost. We will contact you when the order is ready to be picked up.


For orders over 1,500, please call Seth Hansen at 515-292-7606 extension 172


We will continue to ship 5mil and 7mil face shields as long as supplies last.
