LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology

LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology logo

Denim fabrics with LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology have more than twice the strength of typical all-cotton denim but provide the comfort and freedom of movement for which the LYCRA® brand is known worldwide. Now denim can be offered with toughness and comfort stretch for such applications as jobwear or skateboarding jeans.

The strength and durability of jeans with LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology comes from the use of LYCRA® T400® fiber in the weft. Up to two times as strong and abrasion resistant as comparable 100% cotton jeans, denim with LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology is the fabric of choice for hard work or play.
