Conwed, the leading plastic netting manufacturer in the world, was highlighted in the December 2015 issue of the Nonwovens Industry Magazine as part of the editorial piece: Hygiene components, responding to diversity. For more than 30 years, the Nonwovens Industry Magazine has tracked the growth of the nonwovens industry through years of market, technology, and product development evolution. The worldwide nonwovens business—at the roll goods level—totals more than $14 billion, according to industry estimates. The major end use areas of nonwovens can generally be split into two areas—disposable, or short-life, and durable, or long-life.

Conwed manufactures Rebound® elastomeric netting, the ultimate stretch engine for elastic nonwoven composites. Rebound functions as the stretchable component in waistbands and side panels used in disposable adult incontinence briefs and underwear and baby training pants. In 2014, Conwed launched Flat Rebound®, a new configuration with flat joints that allows the creation of stretchable and smooth composites for superior comfort and feel. It addressed the demand for having lightweight and breathable composites with no joints to mimic a smooth apparel-type texture. “Manufacturers can create stretchable, thin, lightweight, discrete composites to replicate apparel-type materials while gaining comfort features with our breathability, heat and moisture management performance”, said Ivan Soltero, Strategic Marketing Manager at Conwed.

As part of the evolution of disposable hygiene products, different component manufacturers collaborated in the latest editorial published by the Nonwovens Industry Magazine. From nonwoven roll goods manufacturers, adhesive and film manufacturers, to consumer product goods companies, the search for lightweight, comfortable and cost-effective performing products is dominating the disposable hygiene industry. "Conwed has been the partner of choice of the nonwovens industry for almost 50 years and our clients use our netting to reinforce, laminate and stretch different substrates to create exceptional composites. Collaborating with the Nonwovens Industry Magazine in this editorial allows us to share some insights from the perspective of a component manufacturer”, said Soltero.

The Nonwovens Industry Magazine is a monthly publication available to its subscribers covering topics from the entire supply chain in the nonwovens industry. For further information about Rebound and its breathable, stretchable features, visit
