HYGIENE

From adult incontinence briefs and underwear to baby training pants and diapers, Conwed netting provides exceptional stretch and breathability performance.

Conwed manufactures and commercializes Rebound® elastomeric netting which serves as an ideal stretch engine material in hygiene products. Initially designed for hygiene applications needing stretchable and durable composites, Rebound® elastomeric netting has been tailored for products that need to be worn without motion restriction.

Rebound® elastomeric netting 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.

Generally used in composite form with nonwovens and other fabrics, Rebound® is the leading elastomeric netting in the world. It is a competitive alternative to other stretch materials such as films, spandex and stretchable nonwovens. In addition to the superior stretchability and recovery properties with less energy loss, Rebound® provides superior breathability and fit. Its breathable properties make our elastomeric netting the ultimate stretch engine in consumer products where skin protection and comfort are essential for market adoption and long-term success.

Depending on the final product application, manufacturers, converters, and laminators may 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.

COMMON APPLICATIONS

Our Rebound® portfolio offers versatile configurations that we adapt to each product development project. As a competitive alternative to other stretchable materials such as spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens, Rebound® elastomeric netting offers superior hysteresis. This means it is highly stretchable and has excellent recovery with less energy loss, improved stress relaxation and set properties. In addition to stretch engine applications in training pants, adult incontinence underwear, therapeutic wraps, bandages, wipes and wound care products, Conwed has seen increased interest in Rebound® from developers of automotive, furniture and bedding products.
