Discover Breakthrough Spandex Technologies

LYCRA® FitSense™ technology is a patented water-based dispersion that features the same molecule as LYCRA® fiber, but in liquid form. This revolutionary innovation is screen printed onto fabric containing LYCRA® fiber to provide lightweight, targeted support across a range of garment types. This solution also helps streamline garment manufacturing through the elimination of sewn-in panels or extra seams and offers unlimited design possibilities for brands and retailers.

LYCRA® 962L fiber is a patent-pending fiber technology engineered with a new polymer designed to deliver improved comfort and fit. The result is greater shape tolerance and a customized fit experience for a range of body shapes within a size. This exciting innovation is launching at Intertextile by invitation only. Select mills, brands and retailers will have the first look at this new technology.

As part of its long-term commitment to sustainability and focus on the company’s Planet Agenda platform, The LYCRA Company is also unveiling LYCRA® EcoMade fiber at Intertextile. This is the company’s first branded spandex/elastane product that is made with pre-consumer recycled materials.
