Why Use LYCRA® dualFX® Technology

Feb 26, 2018

The problem: As fabric stretch increases, so does the tendency for fabric growth or shrinkage.  This loss of performance led to complaints, product returns, and dissatisfied consumers.

The solution: Patented LYCRA® dualFX® technology provides 2 stretch fibers for improved performance. LYCRA® fiber provides super stretch while LYCRA® T400® fiber offers exceptional shape retention. These fibers are covered with cotton or other fibers to achieve an authentic denim look and feel, while offering all-day comfort and an exceptional fit. If you’d like to create a more sustainable product, INVISTA has launched LYCRA T400® fiber with EcoMade technology, which is made from a combination of recycled materials and renewable plant-based ingredients.
