Abstract

See full text

Stretchable fastener products are formed by providing a sheet-form fastener tape, slitting the fastener tape to form longitudinally extending bands of fastener tape and separating the longitudinally extending bands to space the fastener tape bands transversely apart. The spaced bands are attached to a sheet form elastic web to form a stretchable fastener product. In some examples, the stretchable fastener product is formed continuously in conjunction with manufacture of the sheet-form fastener tape.
