WEIGHT - Typically reported in pounds per 1,000 square feet (PMSF) and grams per square meter (GSM).
THICKNESS - Usually reported in length measurements such as inches, mils and millimeters.
WEIGHT AND THICKNESS
Conwed netting can be configured to match weight targets.
With all other variables remaining constant, as netting weight
increases, the product strength, thickness and roll diameter
increase while the strands get bigger. Conversely, as the
product weight decreases, the variables mentioned before
also decrease. Nevertheless, there are many plastic resins that
behave differently and provide a wide range of properties
that allow for affecting some variables while limiting the
effect in others.
Conwed netting thickness could also be referred to as
“height.” The thickness of the netting is intrinsically
related to the weight. In general terms, the heavier the
netting configuration, the thicker the strands. Conwed has
developed certain exceptions to this rule by creating netting
configurations where weight remained constant and selected
strands had a customized thickness. This is just an example
of our technology capabilities and our ability to tailor our
products to fit the final application.
Modifying netting characteristics leads to different outcomes.
We can help you develop your next product innovation.
Reported thickness is generally the joint thickness
which is the thickest part of the netting
In a flat netting configuration, the joint
thickness and strand thickness are equal
