About this product

From adult incontinence briefs and underwear to baby training pants and apparel waistbands, our elastomeric netting powers diverse elastic composites. SWM manufactures and commercializes Conwed Elastic Square Netting which serves as an ideal stretch engine material in hygiene, medical, therapeutic, and apparel products. Initially designed for hygiene applications needing stretchable and durable composites, elastic composites made from Conwed netting have been tailored for products that need to be worn without motion restriction.

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 spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens. In addition to the elastic stretchability and superior recovery properties with less energy loss, our elastomeric 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.


Benefits of Conwed Elastic Composite

  • Mesh configuration with multiple holes provides a highly breathable surface that improves air permeability, water vapor transmission and heat transfer of the final nonwoven composite.
  • Compared to solid or perforated film composites, Conwed elastic composites deliver improved breathability performance.
  • Flat surface helps create smooth, uniform and aesthetically attractive elastic composites for comfortable and discreet product designs.
  • Hysteresis performance can be customized or matched to that of other stretchable materials such as spandex, films and nonwovens.
  • Breathable mesh configuration helps draw moisture away from user’s skin and disperse it over a determined area where it can evaporate.
  • Ideal stretch engine for elastic waistbands, side panels and ears.


Rebound elastic composites can be incorporated with other substrates using diverse manufacturing processes. For additional information about our elastic composites, product specifications, and pricing, contact our team today at ams@swmintl.com.


Conwed Elasticity Options

Compared to other elastic composites and stretchable materials, such as spandex, films and stretchable nonwovens, our elastomeric netting can be designed with stretchability features in one or both directions of the web.
