INVISTA, one of the world's largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, is celebrating with the North America Apparel industry the commercial introduction of its innovative LYCRA fiber with W Technology in a special event.

LYCRA fiber with W Technology has a package of enhancements that improves visual and physical fabric uniformity with an optimized luster, color-blending, and new proprietary spinning technology. This new level of performance in elastane fibers is designed to offer improved whiteness retention, uniformity, brilliant color clarity and better molding for fabrics and garments in intimate apparel.

“Over the years the LYCRA fiber brand has delivered multiple breakthroughs in the apparel industry. LYCRA fiber with W Technology is our latest solution that provides our customers with a better starting point in garment-making. We are proud to be providing this new technology to our customers as we continue to push the needle forward in the apparel industry,” said, Bob Kirkwood, Executive Vice President Marketing & Technology

The new technology will provide a robust enhancement for both warp and circular knit fabrics and will enable greater coloration and styling flexibility without changing fabric properties, thus providing garment designers with the increased confidence that both whites and fashion colours will be bright, long-lasting, and true.

  • LYCRA fibre with W Technology has enduring whiteness: From fabric formation to the final selling floor, fabrics are bombarded with forces that dull brilliant whites. LYCRA fiber with W Technology is designed to protect across the broad spectrum of these conditions.
  • LYCRA fiber with W Technology is invisible: Its new level of dye pickup enables it to blend beautifully with polyamide colors. Molded cups and high-content fabrics can reach a new level of evenness and clarity.
  • LYCRA fibre with W Technology can bring confidence: It will help to create fashion colours without doubts, with the increased assurance that the fibre’s enhanced invisibility comes with no loss in fastness.

“In response to the market needs we are able to offer our partners with LYCRA fiber with W Technology that provides styling flexibility and technical and fashion options that weren’t possible before,” said, Steve Stewart, INVISTA Apparel Global Director of Intimate Apparel & Swimwear.

"Not only does this fiber set a new standard for performance excellence in whites, but it also provides a new level of color-blending with nylon companion yarns to enable richer and clearer fashion colors. This technology package incorporates new spinning technology and proprietary dye-pickup technology that enables the fiber to become the invisible secret that delivers truly visible improvements for today’s intimate apparel." he added.
