The difference between co-extrusion and bi-component is that co-extrusion has
different layers (one on top of the other) following exactly the same configuration.
Bi-component has two different materials, one in each opposite direction, forming
the web. For example, Conwed produces a stretchable component product that has
elastomeric material in one direction and adhesive in the opposite direction.
Conwed produces the leading elastomeric netting worldwide. From hygiene and
medical applications to therapeutic and consumer products, elasticity and comfort are
key performance indicators. Rebound® elastomeric netting is the only product that
can be designed with bi-directional and uni-directional elasticity.
Conwed is the worldwide leader in lightweight oriented netting. We have the
ability to reduce weight with minimal impact on other netting characteristics.
Square, flat and co-extrusion netting may be oriented, depending on the final
Conwed manufactures a full line of netting configurations with multiple layers that
help reinforce, support, bond and laminate a wide range of substrates in diverse
industrial, packaging and consumer applications.
Knitted netting utilizes a different technology than extruded or oriented netting.
It is usually part of products that need some type of flexibility and movement. For
example, Conwed manufactures the leading knitted netting for oil-absorbent booms.
It is the key component used to encase and contain the filler that repels water
but absorbs oil and hydrocarbons. Also, knitted netting is an essential part of our
packaging portfolio that includes produce, meats and other consumer goods.
Conwed manufactures exceptional high-tenacity polypropylene (PP) yarn in a variety
of colors and weights to meet our customers’ product specifications and performance
targets. Our multifilament yarn is manufactured in the U.S. and available worldwide.
