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.

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.
