DETROIT, Mich. -- A Ford Motor Company employee

positions an instrument panel on a sealer conveyor which

is pushed into a web of "Reynolon" plastic film past a

sealer bar at the company's Instrument and Plastics Plant

in Saline, Mich. Ford this year switched from polyethylene

to Reynolon plastic film, a clear, heat shrinkable plastic

film produced by Reynolds Metals Company, for packaging

aftermarket grilles and instrument panels. The company

reports up to a 50 per cent savings in materials costs as

the result of the change.
