Performance activewear is worn under extreme conditions that can stress fabric. External agents like UV exposure, sweat, sunscreen, lotions and chlorine can degrade spandex yarn. This leads to a loss of recovery power and reduces garment performance. LYCRA® BLACK technology acts like a shield to protect the fabric from these damaging agents.
As the industry’s first elastane with durable true black color, LYCRA® BLACK technology has virtually eliminated the problem of elastane grin-through and glitter. It also offers the high fabric power retention, color fastness and durable chlorine resistance, and these additional benefits to enhance consumer value:
- Long-lasting fit and shape retention
- Excellent uniformity
- High recovery power
- High tenacity for robust processing
- Potential for reducing dyestuff consumption
- Fabric certification process helps ensure consistent performance regardless of supply source
