LYCRA® T162R Fiber

LYCRA® T162R fiber is the only globally available commercial offering of a bio-derived elastane. Approximately 70% by weight of this general-purpose fiber comes from a renewable source made from dextrose derived from corn. 

LYCRA® T162R fiber has the same physical properties as the incumbent T162L product. It can be combined with natural or synthetic yarns, provides excellent break performance in covering, core-spinning, and twisting operations, and can be subjected to denim bleaching, stone washing, and enzyme treatments.
