XD Spacer the 3D Spacer Fabric from Baltex

Mesh Fabric and 3D Spacer Fabrics

Spacer Fabrics

Baltex has always and continues to push the boundaries of material technology. That has been at the centre of everything we have done and it is what keeps us creating incredible new products. Introducing our range of 3D Spacer Fabrics.

Innovative technology

These fabrics have been designed with a variety of useful properties to fulfill many different purposes. Baltex is a leading producer of 3D Spacer Fabrics. Over the last 10 years we have developed XD Spacer, a range of three dimensional knitted fabrics. These are mainly produced on double needle bar warp-knitting machines. Thicknesses vary from 3mm to 20mm. We use both warp-knit and weft-knit technologies and are a leader in this field of textiles.

In 2013, we launched a new range of elastomeric fabrics sold under our brand 4XD Spacer. With this exciting new development Baltex continues to shape the future of technical textiles.

Possible properties

We develop our products to have certain properties, which means that there are several advantages that they offer to various industries:

  • HIGH AIR PERMEABILITY
  • INSULATION
  • COST-EFFICIENCY 
  • COMPRESSION STRENGTH
  • DURABILITY
  • RECYCLABILITY
  • PRESSURE REDISTRIBUTION
  • FIRE RETARDANCY
  • ANTI-BACTERIAL
  • OEKOTEX 100 APPROVAL


Our products are being widely used for the replacement of foam and neoprene products.

The nature of this product means that there are so many different combinations and possibilities possible. Simply by knitting different fibres together on different faces we can create several combinations of properties. This allows us to tailor-make fabrics for extremely specific applications.

Applications

We design our products with applications in mind. Durability, insulation, fire retardancy and several other properties mean that they are being used in several key applications from a variety of industries:

  • CYCLE HELMETS 
  • BOOT SOLES
