Conwed is the leading plastic netting manufacturer in the world. We manufacture apertured extruded, oriented, and multilayer netting with unique customization capabilities. We’ve got you covered from agriculture, packaging, and consumer goods to industrial, infrastructure, building & construction, erosion control, and energy applications.
HOW IS CONWED™ NETTING MADE?
Conwed™ Netting is manufactured through a single-step continuous extrusion process, yielding a plastic material with integral joints. Some netting configurations may undergo an additional process, such as orientation and subsequent conversion, such as slitting, rewinding, calendering, sheeting, lamination, and more.
Conwed uses different resins, and the netting formulations will vary depending on the raw material properties, the product requirements and specifications, and the intended product lifetime.
Key Netting Terminology
MACHINE DIRECTION (MD) – The direction the material moves during processing.
CROSS DIRECTION (CD) – The direction that crosses from one side to the other side of the machine. It is also referred to as Transverse Direction (TD).
