Conwed netting is used to provide reinforcement, stretch, lamination, separation and channeling functionalities to hundreds of composites in automotive, apparel, building and construction, filtration, hygiene and medical applications. “Our netting can be incorporated with nonwovens and other substrates to create truly exceptional composites. We have customers creating composites through extrusion coating, extrusion lamination, thermal lamination, ultrasonic welding, wet and dry adhesive lamination and diverse nonwoven processes,” says Ivan Soltero, senior strategic marketing manager at Conwed.
Conwed is showcasing a wide portfolio of its netting technology at IDEA 16. Its Rebound elastomeric netting is the ultimate stretch engine material used in elastic composites. Rebound is utilized in composite form with nonwovens and other substrates acting as an alternative to spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens. In hygiene products, it is used as the elastic material in waistbands and side panels that are found in adult incontinence briefs and underwear as well as baby training pants. “Rebound is an exceptional elastic material. In apparel applications, it is also used in sports pants, yoga pants and other garments requiring elasticity and superior breathability features,” says Soltero.
