LYCRA® BLACK technology

BLACK Technology

LYCRA® BLACK technology is built on the industry’s first truly black elastane, LYCRA® T275Z fiber, a chlorine-resistant fiber that derives its deep color from spun-in black pigment. Fabrics exhibit deeper, darker shades that retain their color intensity. It’s even possible to combine the technology with a producer-colored nylon for an undyed fabric with complete fastness and no color bleed at all.

LYCRA® BLACK technology also provides a highly effective solution to the problem of elastane grin-through and glitter.

  • Virtual elimination of unwanted elastane grin-though
  • Improved colorfastness in dark shades
  • Excellent uniformity
