Create versatile composites with our multilayer netting technology.
Our multilayer reinforcement netting helps manufacturers create exceptionally strong and lightweight composites. Conwed manufactures a full line of netting configurations with multiple layers that help reinforce, support, bond, and laminate a wide range of substrates in diverse industrial and consumer applications.
Multilayer Netting is a configuration formed by multiple layers of oriented netting laying one on top of another, creating a strong but lightweight mesh compatible with different substrates. It is an ideal alternative to other reinforcement materials such as cross-laminated fabrics, cross-laid scrims, etc. Conwed Multilayer Netting™ can be incorporated into substrates such as nonwoven, foam, paper, film, membrane, tissue, and other fabrics to form strong but lightweight composites. From house wraps, rain screens, and roof and floor underlayments to furniture fabrics, carpet pads, wipes, cleaning, and disposable products, our netting offers excellent tensile strength properties without significantly impacting the overall weight of the composite. Our ability to customize helps OEMs, manufacturers, and converters test different substrate and netting combinations until the required performance is achieved.
The difference between our multilayer reinforcement netting and other standard extruded or oriented designs is that Conwed™ Multilayer Netting overlaps two or more oriented netting layers that can be designed differently. This helps provide the desired strength and coverage area and secure optimal bonding with other substrates. It offers countless design combinations, superior breathability performance, and can be bonded and laminated through different production processes.
Netting Design Configurations
Our multilayer netting capabilities allow us to customize each netting layer of the final Conwed configuration. Whether the layers use the same netting mesh size, weight, chemical composition, and design or are made differently, our engineering team will create the precise multilayer version to meet your specific product requirements. Our netting comprises overlapping layers to create multilayer netting configurations with different performance targets.
Conwed™ Flat Netting
Uniquely designed for hygiene and apparel applications, flat Conwed is an elastomeric netting with flat joints to create smooth and highly breathable nonwoven composites. It is used in composite form with different substrates acting as the stretch engine alternative to spandex, films, and stretchable nonwovens.
Conwed™ Erosion Control Fiber
Conwed™ Erosion Control Fiber is used in permanent erosion control applications and made with 100% recycled plastic. The black color is due to the recycled resins used.
