Is this something new for PUL?
 
I haven't made diapers in years from pul. I bought some the other day, one cut looks the way I remember with a smooth layer of clear coating on one side and the other cuts the clear coating looks dimpled or something. It's 1ml pul so I'm just nervous I guess but is that some newfangled coating process?

If the coating is dimpled, it is just poorly laminated. It may result in leaking, or it may not. It may wear more quickly though. Depending on where you bought it, I'd send it back.

Actually, if by "dimpled" you mean that the back has little even dots all over, then it's just laminated using a different process. I'm sure there's lots of information out there about the differences if you want to read them, but from my experience, both are equally effective and long lasting.

Yeap...some people say they do not like the look...but I couldn't care less, because the stuff still works!! You should be fine with it. I use it all the time, and no leaks here!

Yes, there are a few manufacturers, and they use different processes. Both are ok and well tested

I should have read better...

If it just appears dimpled, but no rough grooves, etc. then it is indeed fine. DOH!

wazoodle had a really great tutorial on different ways PUL is manufactured. If I can find it, I'll link it back here.

eta....Ak! the link is dead. Anyhow, it did say that the dotted lamination was OK.
