LYCRA® STEAM SETTABLE technology

LYCRA® STEAM-SETTABLE technology logo

LYCRA® STEAM-SETTABLE technology has been specially developed for legwear applications that require greater steam-settability than standard elastane so that garments can be steam-boarded to shape for an aesthetically pleasing layout. It is the preferred technology for producing hosiery with LYCRA® 3D technology, in which LYCRA® fiber is knit into every course, and for boarded socks that are sized convincingly for enhanced counter appeal.

LYCRA® STEAM-SETTABLE technology is based on two innovative LYCRA® fiber types:

  • LYCRA® T178C fiber: for hosiery and as a plating yarn for socks.
  • LYCRA® T188C fiber: for hosiery only, it provides even greater steam-settability for enhanced table layout and foot definition.
  • High steam-settability for efficient boarding
  • Ideal for hosiery with LYCRA® fiber in every knitted course
  • Preferred for LYCRA® 3D technology
