BEST PACIFIC TO INTRODUCE LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ CERTIFIED FABRICS AT ORSM 2017

Jul 24, 2017

Visit the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show in Salt Lake City to witness the debut of one of the first lines of commercially available LYCRA® SPORT Power-Comfort-Energy (PCE™) index-certified fabrics on the market, which is being launched by Best Pacific. This proprietary index has been a real game changer for mills when it comes to designing, producing, differentiating and selling performance fabrics for sportswear.

BEST PACIFIC TO INTRODUCE LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ CERTIFIED FABRICS AT ORSM 2017

Stand Out from the Pack

Knitted textile mills typically focus on a fabric’s physical performance to differentiate their offerings and protect margins, but before the LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ index launched last year, there was no scientific way to measure that performance, or to easily compare fabrics. This innovation enables mills to technically document and explain to customers precisely how a fabric actually performs, which gives them a competitive edge in a crowded marketplace. LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ certification makes it possible to outflank your competitors and win business by developing new, application-specific fabrics that consistently deliver on comfort and performance.

Creating Value for Customers

LYCRA® SPORT technology is quickly becoming the must-have ingredient for performance sportswear. Many top brands are utilizing fabrics designed to specific PCE™ parameters to help differentiate their newest high-tech apparel for athletes and active consumers. To find out more about LYCRA® SPORT technology and other cutting-edge innovations, visit Best Pacific’s booth (No. 255-107) at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show, being held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah from July 26-29, 2017.
