Fabrics from Baltex

The warp-knitted spacer fabric from Baltex (pictured above) is a recent development, which has airflow, compression comfort and moisture wicking properties. It is inherently bacteriostatic and machine washable, and can also be treated with PCM (Phase change materials) to introduce further thermoregulation. This UK-made fabric is recyclable and would typically used for foam replacement, insulation/ventilation, as a mattress topper or in healthcare, pet or equine and police body armour liner applications.
