Co-extrusion is extruded and oriented square netting with different materials
in different layers. For example, Conwed can produce a square netting that has
polypropylene in the core layer and an adhesive formulation on top and bottom
layers for subsequent thermal lamination purposes.
CONWED CORE PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGIES
Extruded square netting is the most common netting configuration used in a large
number of industrial and consumer applications. As an example, Conwed produces
square netting that protects oil and gas pipelines against debris and rock damage
during backfilling. Not only did Conwed deliver a solution with basic pipeline
protection features; we also created netting that helped maintain cathodic
protection without inhibiting cathodic flow.
Extruded diamond netting is a favorite configuration in cross-flowing applications
due to its unique volume and height characteristics. Opposite strands lie one on top
of the other, providing that differential space gap when compared to square netting.
For example, in filtration applications, diamond netting is used for drainage and
spacing, allowing consistent flow characteristics for proper turbulence to clean
membrane media surfaces.
Extruded flat netting is an alternative to level the joints where opposite strands
collide. From building and construction products to sophisticated medical and
hygiene applications, flat joints may be a performance or a perception requirement.
For example, we manufacture fence products with regular or flat joints. The flat
joints allow for a smoother surface and may prevent injury during shipping, handling
and installation of fence products at the job site.
Extruded tubes are generally used to support, contain and separate. Most current
applications are in filtration, where extruded tubes provide strength and rigidity to
protect delicate filtration media. Nevertheless, extruded tubes are used in consumer
and transportation applications. The ability to customize our portfolio opens the door
for modifications of new and unexplored applications.
Based on the final product application, Conwed can
recommend the most suitable netting solution.
