XD Spacer the 3D Spacer Fabric from Baltex

Mesh Fabric and 3D Spacer Fabrics

Baltex is a leading producer of 3D spacer fabrics. Over the last 10 years we have developed XD Spacer, a range of 3 dimensional knitted spacer 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 have launched a new range of elastomeric Spacer Fabrics sold under our brand 4XD Spacer. With this exciting new development Baltex continues to Shape the future of Technical Textiles.
