Products needing flexibility, extensibility, breathability, recovery and fitting capabilities rely on Conwed elastomeric netting for superior performance.
Conwed manufactures and commercializes Rebound® elastomeric netting which serves as an ideal stretch engine material for a wide range of product applications. It is an ideal alternative to other stretch materials such as films, spandex and stretchable nonwovens. From adult incontinence underwear and training pants to therapeutic wraps, bandages and wipes, Rebound® plays an essential role in their performance.
Rebound® is extruded plastic netting made with specialty polymeric materials that provide stretchability in one or both directions of the web. Our engineering team can tailor all netting variables to deliver precise product performance and breathability.
Manufacturers, converters, and laminators can produce composites with film, foam, paper, membrane, nonwoven, tissue and other fabrics used in various industrial and consumer applications. These composites can provide customized drapeability, flexibility, elasticity and recovery based on the versatility of our elastomeric netting.

REBOUND® ELASTICITY OPTIONS
Compared to other stretchable materials, such as spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens, our elastomeric netting can be designed with stretchability features in one or both directions of the web.
Rebound® with bi-directional elasticity is the standard elastomeric netting. It has an elastomer formulation in both directions of the web (MD & CD).
Conwed can tailor the strand count, hole size, weight, thickness and hysteresis to meet customer requirements.
Rebound® with uni-directional elasticity, a more elaborate product, is a web design with an elastomeric material in one direction and another polymer in the opposite direction.
Conwed calls this product Rebound® Bi-component as different formulations, one in each direction, form the web. Conwed can also tailor the strand count, hole size, weight, thickness and hysteresis of this Rebound® Bi-component to fit the final product application.
