About Health, Hygiene and Personal Care Products

Our range of hygiene products ranges from everyday products, like diapers, to luxury beauty products, such as our botanical facial sheet mask materials. This expansive portfolio illustrates our ability to meet the needs of this market on multiple levels--from netting to botanical "papers." From adult incontinence briefs and underwear to baby training pants and diapers, SWM netting provides exceptional stretch and breathability performance.

 

Typical Hygiene and Incontinence Applications: 

  • Adult incontinence briefs and underwear
  • Baby diapers and training pants
  • Consumer wipes
  • Cosmetic facial masks
  • Waistbands, side panels, composites and more

SWM manufactures and commercializes an elastomeric netting which serves as an ideal stretch engine material in hygiene products. Initially designed for hygiene applications needing stretchable and durable composites, our elastomeric netting has been tailored for products that need to be worn without motion restriction. Conwed™ Elastomeric Netting (formerly Rebound®) is extruded plastic netting made with specialty polymeric materials that provide stretchability in one or both directions of the web. Our engineering team can tailor all netting variables to deliver precise product performance and breathability.


Generally used in composite form with nonwovens and other fabrics, Conwed is the leading elastomeric netting in the world. It is a competitive alternative to other stretch materials such as films, spandex and stretchable nonwovens. In addition to the superior stretchability and recovery properties with less energy loss, our elastic netting provides superior breathability and fit. Its breathable properties make our elastomeric netting the ultimate stretch engine in consumer products where skin protection and comfort are essential for market adoption and long-term success.


Depending on the final product application, manufacturers, converters, and laminators may produce composites with film, foam, paper, membrane, nonwoven, tissue and other fabrics used in various industrial and consumer applications. These composites can provide customized drapeability, flexibility, elasticity, and recovery based on the versatility of our elastomeric netting.

Conwed™ for Hygiene Applications

Our Conwed™ elastomeric netting (formerly known as Rebound) is the ultimate stretch engine for elastic composites used in adult incontinence briefs and underwear, and in baby training pants. Typical applications include elastic waistbands and side panels which are usually composites made with lightweight nonwovens.

Conwed™ Bi-Component Netting in Hygiene Applications

SWM manufactures Conwed™ (formerly Rebound®), the leading elastomeric netting in the world. Our bi-component technology allows us to develop elastomeric netting configurations with stretchability features in the cross direction (CD) and another resin in the machine direction (MD). These composites are often used in elastic waistbands for adult incontinence briefs and underwear.
