made with Conwed Netting
Non-slip reinforcement for additional grip and safety
A leading manufacturer of building materials had been exploring different components to create a non-slip roofing underlayment product. These materials proved to be too heavy or rigid for subsequent lamination with other substrates, so they called Conwed into action.
Our co-extrusion technology allows us to create netting components with different layers within the same netting configuration. Our team created a lightweight, flexible yet strong netting design with customized adhesive features in top and bottom layers of the netting configuration to facilitate lamination with other substrates. These features solved the weight, flexibility and lamination concerns; however, our team also developed unique joint height to provide the additional grip needed to walk safely on the roof underlayment. In the end, our customer was able to differentiate its roofing underlayment with superior grip functionality, keep overall product cost within target, and save additional adhesive cost by using Conwed netting as the bonding agent.
