3D-TEX by Mayser is three-dimensional formed fabrics, which have been impregnated with a stabilising resin system. The textiles, which are preferably used, are knitted fabrics made of polyester, polyamide or cotton. The variable resin coats in different based materials ranging from elastic to stiff can control the degree of stability of 3D-TEX. 3D-TEX has been especially designed and developed to be used as a flexible core material for the production of sandwich components, and is used for the production of metallic façade systems. But it can be used in other applications as well. Because 3D-Tex is a highly flexible material it can be used in the designer milieu for the creationof lampshades or for lighting elements in exhibition installations.
