BI-COMPONENT

One way or another, our netting components provide essential performance functionalities.

Bi-component netting is made of two different materials, one in each opposite direction, forming the web.  Conwed can combine different, compatible resins, in the same netting configuration but in opposite directions. For example, one bi-component netting design may include an elastomer material in one direction and an adhesive in the opposite direction. This netting could eventually be incorporated with other substrates under thermal lamination.  Otherwise, we could include polypropylene (PP) resin in one direction and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in the opposite direction if the netting does not need to stretch.  These are just two examples of the variety of combinations that are available in our bi-component portfolio. The limits of our netting technology are constantly tested and we are accustomed to research and test chemical formulations that will deliver your desired performance.

Our bi-component netting can be incorporated to nonwoven, foam, paper, film, membrane, tissue and other fabrics to become part of composites used in various industrial and consumer applications. The lamination and bonding versatility of our netting components allow us to be part of a wide range of applications without necessarily being seen in the final product.   From medical and hygiene products to highly customized building and construction applications, our bi-component netting portfolio delivers essential performance functionalities.

COMMON APPLICATIONS

Bi-component netting is one of our most technology-advanced products.  In addition to standard netting characteristics, our customers can combine different resins and additives in opposite directions of the web.  For example, bi-component netting with a thermoplastic elastomer material in one direction and polyethylene in the opposite direction provides superior stretchability and recovery in high-tech therapeutic products.
