Cleaning & Disposable

Solutions for strong, flexible, and efficient cleaning and disposable products.

About this market

Create versatile, efficient and high-performing products with SWM materials.

From shower and tub scrubbing pads to sweeping, mopping and dust removal products, SWM materials are essential components in dry or wet cleaning products. Our materials provide lightweight, cost-effective solutions for manufacturers of cleaning and disposable products.

For example, SWM plastic netting can be used independently or it can be used as the bonding element between two or more layers of substrates to form a composite. Our netting can be incorporated using lamination and bonding processes such as thermal lamination, extrusion coating/lamination, wet and dry adhesive lamination and ultrasonic welding. Furthermore, nonwoven manufacturers can incorporate netting during the web formation phase to subsequently bond it through chemical, thermal or bonding processes.

Learn about our customization, netting configurations, capabilities and core products and be introduced to our manufacturing processes in our Introduction to Plastic Netting section.

Our engineering and R&D teams thrive on exploring unusual, untested, out-of-the-box concepts and we have an open mindset in developing new and unexplored applications. We are eager to help you solve any product development challenge and uncover potential innovation together. If you have a product development challenge and wonder if SWM materials may help you solve it, contact our team.


Vacuum Bag Reinforcement

SWM plastic netting is an essential component in vacuum dust bags, and provides enough strength to withstand tough air pressure conditions and contain dust residuals. The plastic netting and nonwoven composite allows the vacuum dust bag manufacturer to increase processing speed in their production process and provides a strong, yet flexible and smooth dust bag without increasing overall weight or cost of the product.

Scrubbing Pad Reinforcement

Our co-extrusion technology allows us to design netting components with different layers within the same netting configuration, for instance, adhesive features can be in the top and bottom netting layers. This concept is used to thermally laminate netting on to nonwoven materials to contain soap capsules within the dish scrubbing pads. Our netting solution provides cost-savings, product weight reduction compared to other alternatives and provide a smooth pad surface for successful market adoption.
