LYCRA® T582L Fiber

LYCRA® T582L fiber has been specially developed to withstand the high temperature required to dye polyester fabric. It is particularly suitable for use in circular and warp knit fabrics for activewear.

LYCRA® T582L fiber exhibits lower heat-set efficiency than standard LYCRA® fiber so that it retains more recovery power after pre-setting (heat-setting before dyeing). This helps to minimize power loss and lean-out during subsequent pressure dyeing and makes LYCRA® T582L fiber a robust choice for use with polyester. It also features a lower first-cycle load force than standard LYCRA® fiber, which means that knitters can achieve higher draft at a given knitting tension.
