Indorama Ventures has blended Creora, a spandex fibre from Hyosung with its Coolvisions dyeable polypropylene filament to offer functional fabrics.

The blending of the two raw materials has resulted in a new look and feel to performance fabrics, which can be used for activewear, competitive swimwear and intimate apparel.

According to Indorama, Creora eco-soft brings a better hand feel, improved whiteness, and superior dimensional stability to stretch fabrics.

“The low-heat settable spandex also results in better moulding performance and less curling in the high-gauge knits preferred by today's intimate apparel, competitive swimwear, and athletic brands,” it said.

"There is a trend for super quick-dry fabrics which is delivered by Coolvisions dyeable polypropylene fibres,” Ria Stern, Creora spandex global marketing director said.

“We recommend the addition of Creora eco-soft spandex to provide an additional level of comfort and fit, and have worked closely to optimise the fabric development process,” Stern added. (AR)
