Laid scrims for wallpaper design with extraordinary geometric structure
We supply manufacturers of wallpapers with laid scrims for extraordinary geometric structures.
As a supplier of thread scrims, BAFATEX offers roll goods for unusual textured wallpapers. In a sales-effective way this sets them apart from the usual wallpapers with embossed structures
As a welcome side effect, a thread scrim increases the tear resistance of wallpaper. This considerably simplifies removal during renovations and is an additional selling point.
You can configure the product according to your own production process and design wishes.
Let your imagination run wild with the design! Configure your products with desired colours, (also ecologically sustainable) materials, thread spacing, etc. (variables: see below). You can also print on our scrims after the connection of wallpaper and threads.
Examples for textures of laid scrims
What are laid scrims?
In contrast to close-meshed fabrics BAFA®– thread scrims consist of threads that cross diagonally at a more or less large distance..
They are impregnated with an adhesive “binder” during the production process. Once the binder has dried, the contact points are glued. This allows for any thread spacing and angle.
Depending on the number of longitudinal and diagonal threads, a narrow- or wide-meshed diamond structure is created. For wallpaper, the geometric design is an unusual alternative.
Depending on the binder material, you can decide during configuration which properties your wallpapers should have. Stiff or soft, tear-resistant, waterproof, ecologically degradable, flame-retardant, etc.

Extraordinary textured wallpaper
BAFA®-laid scrims are suitable for use on the surface and underside of wallpapers.
On the surface, thread scrims are a real eye-catcher.
With natural fibres like cotton, jute, hemp or sisal, they make an ecological statement. The wallpaper remains recyclable as waste paper.
Materials such as glass fibre, carbon fibre or steel fibre, on the other hand, emphasise a technical design.
On the underside, thread scrims create a discreet wave look in the wallpaper. Depending on the thickness of the threads, the wave effect can be finely adjusted.
