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.
SWM manufactures and commercializes Rebound® elastomeric netting which serves as an ideal stretch engine material in hygiene products. Initially designed for hygiene applications needing stretchable and durable composites, Rebound® elastomeric netting has been tailored for products that need to be worn without motion restriction.
Rebound® elastomeric netting 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, Rebound® 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, Rebound® 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.
