MINNEAPOLIS, MN (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
Conwed, the leading plastic netting manufacturer in the world, will be showcasing some of its latest innovations at IDEA13 – International Engineered Fabrics Conference & Expo in Miami Beach, FL (April 22-25, 2013).
Visitors to IDEA 13 will have the opportunity to see, touch and feel the newest elastic nonwoven composites powered by Rebound® elastomeric netting. They are an excellent alternative to spandex and stretch-film composites used in hygiene, medical and therapeutic applications.
“Our business is in constant evolution. We recognized the need to facilitate the adoption of our elastomeric netting as many manufacturers are already set up to process spandex and stretch films but have limitations to integrate netting. By offering a material that incorporates our elastomeric netting with a lightweight nonwoven, we help manufacturers simplify the integration of our materials into their manufacturing processes” said Ivan Soltero, Strategic Marketing Manager, Conwed.
Conwed considers waistbands, side panels, bandages and wraps in hygiene, medical and therapeutic applications ideal for these elastic composites. “For example, in adult incontinence underwear, we see consumers asking for reliable yet more breathable and comfortable products that fit into their active lifestyles. Our open mesh configuration and ability to customize hysteresis performance in one or both directions give these composites unique features that help manufacturers create exceptional products to delight this segment of the hygiene market”, said Soltero.
In addition to these elastic composites, Conwed will display non-elastic, reinforcement applications with other substrates such as film, foam, foil, paper and nonwoven fabrics. These composites bring superior strength and lightweight product design to a world of applications. (Conwed- IDEA Booth 1329)
