T837 LYCRA HyFit fiber for hygiene industry launched

May '10
INVISTA, global manufacturer of fibers, chemical intermediates and polymers, launches a new T837 LYCRA HyFit Fiber for the personal care market segment. This new product, branded as LYCRA HyFit fiber, is the most recent innovation by INVISTA and is unlike any previous version of LYCRA XA fiber.

LYCRA HyFit fiber is a breakthrough spandex fiber for hygiene applications that is based on the existing Type-262 LYCRA XA fiber formulation currently offered by INVISTA. This new product simultaneously reduces fiber-to-fiber tack without negatively impacting creep performance. With lower take-off tension than Type-262 LYCRA XA fiber, LYCRA HyFit fiber can improve the consistency of package delivery with less opportunity for tension spikes. This unique product offering also makes it possible to explore reductions in glue add-on rates to further reduce manufacturing costs. LYCRA HyFit fiber is designed for continuous running, which can provide significant cost savings by minimizing downtime and fully utilizing each package down to the core. It may also be used as a replacement for rubber with three to four times less material required to achieve comparable retractive force. LYCRA HyFit fiber is available in both white and blue with additional colors available upon request.

Since the early 1980's, babies and adults have experienced the comfort and fit benefits of LYCRA fiber in their personal care products. LYCRA HyFit fiber is a distinct product specifically designed to meet the needs of customers in the hygiene industry as it offers excellent stretch and recovery for a gentle fit around the legs while it also allows garment designs to be thin, quiet and discreet.

“As one of the world's top providers of stretch solutions for disposable diapers, adult incontinence and personal-hygiene products, INVISTA remains committed to innovation and growth,” says Robert van de Kerkhof, global vice president of stretch performance materials. “We continue to invest in enhancements and expansions to our production capabilities that more efficiently provide all of INVISTA's specialized, high-value LYCRA fiber products to our customers around the world.”

LYCRA HyFit fiber is currently being manufactured in Waynesboro, Va., though INVISTA's intention is to make this new product at regional manufacturing facilities to maintain a global offering with regional support and service.

INVISTA is one of the world's largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, primarily for nylon, spandex and polyester applications. INVISTA's global businesses deliver exceptional value for customers through technology innovations, market insights and a powerful portfolio of global trademarks including COOLMAX fabric, CORDURA fabric, freshFX fiber, LYCRA fiber, SUPPLEX fabric, TACTEL fiber, and THERMOLITE fabric.
