Air mesh is a knitted fabric made of three layers. The two separate knitted substrates are joined together or kept apart by spacer yarns and hence the fabric is also called as Spacer Fabric.The properties of the three layers are: First layer – hydrophilic nature, Second layer – hydroscopic nature and Spacer layer – mono or multi filament
|Feature||Anti-Static, Flame Retardant, Shrink-Resistant, Waterproof|
|Applications||Bag, Car, Curtain, Dress, Felt, Garment, Home Textile, Interlining, Mattress, Shoes, Sofa, Tent, Toy, Trousers, Upholstery, Wedding|
Designed to have a wide range of applications, the Air Mesh fabric contains lots of small holes at regular intervals, allowing air to move through the fabric without distorting it too much or worse, pulling the fabric with it! This allows the fabric to be used safely in high-wind conditions.
Spacer fabrics (3D fabrics) are produced through knitting and weaving technologies; among these technologies knitting is the most common manufacturing process for the production of spacer fabrics. There are two types of spacer fabrics: warp-knitted spacer fabric and weft-knitted spacer fabric.The first type is knitted on a rib raschel machine having two needle bars, while the second is knitted on a double jersey circular machine having a rotatable needle cylinder and needle dial. 3D Spacer structures are much like a sandwich wherein the constructions are comprised of two separate fabric webs, which are joined together by spacer threads of varying rigidity.Where the face and back of the fabric are knitted separately, at the same time, it is interconnected by monofilament yarns. Three layer of this fabric is constructed at the same time.All techniques require the use of at least three different yarns for each course of visual fabric. The degree of space or height between the two fabric faces is determined in the circular knitting machine by the setting of the dial height relative to the machine cylinder. Spacer fabric heights present in this way can vary between 1.5 and 5.5 mm.
