made with Conwed Netting
Strong yet lightweight knitted netting for reliable containment applications
When the Gulf Coast oil spill occurred in 2010, Conwed supported the clean-up efforts. We were able to increase production in a very short period of time to supply oil boom manufacturers with the leading knitted netting used in their absorbent oil booms.
With a crisis situation at hand, our team worked non-stop to supply manufacturers with lightweight knitted netting configurations that provide enhanced tensile strength during the retrieving and handling of soaked oil booms. Conwed netting is the key component used to encase and contain the filler that repels water but absorbs oil and hydrocarbons, so our rapid response to sudden demand helped our customers assist efficiently in the containment and cleaning efforts.
