DISPOSABLE SCRUBBING PADS
made with Conwed Netting
Lightweight reinforcement for long-lasting cleaning pads
A global Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) company needed a material to reinforce their scrubbing pads without increasing weight. Another requirement was to create a soft, smooth surface to avoid hurting users’ skin when washing dishes or cleaning surfaces. Conwed researched and tested different resin formulations and netting configurations until the most suitable solution was identified.
Our team designed a lightweight netting configuration that provided superior strength without significantly affecting overall product weight. Our co-extrusion technology allows us to design netting components with different layers within the same netting configuration, so we also included adhesive features in the top and bottom netting layers. This concept facilitated thermal lamination to nonwoven materials which helped contain soap capsules within the pads. Our netting solution let our customer save adhesive costs, reduce weight compared to other alternatives and provide a smooth pad surface for successful market adoption.
