Conwed Introduces Padmate® Carpet Cushion Netting With Ecocycle™ Technology

Minneapolis-based Conwed Global Netting Solutions - a manufacturer of high-performance plastic netting solutions used in consumer-packaged goods and building materials applications, and a part of Conwed Plastics LLC - has introduced 100-percent degradable Padmate® netting for carpet cushion padding. According to the company, though carpet pad recycling is one of the largest recycling efforts in the United States, more than 2 million pounds of carpet cushion netting is not recycled. Conwed uses its patented Ecocycle™ technology in the construction of the netting, which breaks down faster than conventional plastics and costs similarly to conventional plastic netting, the company reports.
