The Challenge

One of the top diaper manufacturers in the world was looking for a material that could be used as the stretch engine for a new line of training pants for babies. After evaluating other stretch materials such as spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens, the manufacturer contacted our team to join the product development process.

Our Solution

After some research in elastomer technology, as well as ongoing collaboration and testing, we delivered an elastomeric netting configuration with superior hysteresis and breathability. Our elastomeric netting solution provided bi-directional elasticity, enhanced stretch, recovery and lightweight features for smooth lamination with other substrates in the final side panel composite.
