Spacer Fabrics

This exciting group of 3D technical textiles is truly multifunctional.

3D Spacer Fabrics offer the unique possibility to combine many properties, functions and fibres within one 3D structure.

Relevant Case Studies

3D Ingredient Carrying Substrate

In 2005 Culzean was approached by a start-up company with a revolutionary concept for a civil engineering product. A Textile Solution was required to act as a substrate for carrying the clients ingredients in their new product.

Non-invasive Fracture Treatment

Our client required a fabric that could be used as an interface between their revolutionary new device and a patient's limb. The fabric was required to provide cushioning and ventilation while also being soft and non-irritating to human skin.

What fibres are most beneficial for your application?

  • Polyester
  • Polypropylene
  • Nylon
  • Glass fibre
  • Metal
  • Aramid

Many other fibres are possible. It is even possible to 'strategically' place the fibres within the 3D structure.

One surface Nylon, one surface polyester perhaps?
