Invista, one of the worldâ€™s largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, primarily for nylon, spandex and polyester applications and also the owner of LYCRA brand will begin the roll-out of the next generation of LYCRA SPORT technology at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah, between August 3 to 6, 2016.
The next generation LYCRA SPORT technology is scientifically engineered to deliver exceptional comfort, fit and support to stretch active wear. The new platform combines the proven stretch technology of LYCRA fiber with demanding testing standards that measure fabric performance descriptors on a simplified 1-10 scale of three indexes.
The overall index approach to LYCRA SPORT technology covers the broad spectrum of fabrics, helping to assure comfort from soft control, yoga-type applications to high compression applications such as running and cycling. LYCRA SPORT technology can also be combined with other LYCRA brand technologies, like LYCRA BLACK technology, to offer additional performance benefits for enhanced consumer value.
Increasingly, athletes and active consumers desire sport-specific garments designed to help optimize their athletic performance but with a high degree of comfort; LYCRA SPORT technology makes it easier than ever for mills, brands and retailers to meet these specific consumer needs, said Huw Williams, INVISTA global segment director, activewear and outdoor.
Their proprietary indexes help designers to easily describe performance levels that are tailored to fit the garmentâ€™s end use and satisfy the wearerâ€™s need for comfort with performance.
LYCRA brand hangtags are designed to drive sales by clearly communicating fabric benefits and the quality assurance the LYCRA brand name offers consumers.
The new LYCRA SPORT platform will offers mills a simplified fabric certification process, enabling clients to access hang tags and other promotional materials.
