Knitted Elastic Features

A versatile elastic option for various projects and can be used in any industry, knitted elastic is a cost-effective flat elastic solution with less rubber or fiber than braided or woven elastics. Knitted elastic can be produced the fastest of all available flat elastics, translating to shorter production lead times for manufacturing large quantities.

Highly resilient, knitted elastic retains the width when stretched and works well when pierced by needles. Knitted elastic has a smooth appearance and is recognizable from other flat elastics by the small “V” shapes that run parallel to the length of the elastic.
