INVISTA launches LYCRA T400 fibre at Expoprotection

Nov '10
INVISTA introduces the LYCRA T400 fibre brand into jobwear at the Expoprotection Fair in Paris (2nd – 5th November).

INVISTA will be showcasing this innovative fibre alongside its CORDURA brand fabric offering at the Paris trade show, Expoprotection, the fair dedicated to risk prevention and management. Introduced to the textile industry in 2001, LYCRA T400 fibre is renowned in the ready to wear industry for its outstanding stretch–recovery characteristics, and is now poised to bring the benefit of durable comfort to the jobwear market.

According to David Capdevila, European marketing manager for wovens, the extension of LYCRA T400 fibre into jobwear garments was the next logical step in the products' evolution.

Capdevila explains, “Garments with LYCRA T400 fibre meet the wearer's needs for comfort, lasting fit and moisture management, all of which are important benefits for jobwear garments. The fibre's excellent strength, stability and chlorine resistance make it very well suited for specific jobwear applications, and industrial laundering.”

What is LYCRA T400 fibre?
LYCRA T400 fibre is INVISTA's trademark for its bi-component fiber. The fibre itself is made with two distinct polymers which shrink differently, causing the fibre to form a permanent coil. After being exposed to heat in the standard finishing process, the coil gets even tighter. Unlike textured fibres which rely on mechanical processes to develop their stretch, the physical coil-like structure of LYCRA T400 fibre provides durable recovery.

The LYCRA T400 fibre brand meets INVISTA's high quality standards so customers can be confident that the brand will always meet their specific requirements of excellence.

Product and processing considerations– LYCRA T400 fibre is currently available in the following decitexes: 33, 55, 83, 165, 330, 450 and 660, allowing mills to make a broad range of fabric types and weights. Products are suitable for core spun or direct use applications, and high quality bi-stretch fabrics can be made for the ultimate in comfort and fit. Fabrics with LYCRA T400 fibre can be disperse dyed using a Thermosol process. High visibility standards can be achieved for deep, vibrant colours.

Klopman International, a leading manufacturer of workwear, protective wear and casual apparel fabrics, with more than a decade of experience in 'stretch-and-recover' technology, is introducing new fabrics with LYCRA T400 fibre.

Anette Helleberg from Klopman Marketing Services said, “Fabrics with LYCRA T400 fibre provide stretch along with moisture management, helping keep the wearer cool and dry. 'Style with practicality' is the key element of our fabric collections for corporate imagewear as they create fresh ways to express an individual image while offering added comfort and freedom of movement to the wearer.

“These fabrics will provide high performance and durability characteristics which are associated with Klopman fabrics and essential for a long wash and wear life-cycle. Following the success of our existing stretch range, we are excited about the performance aspects that LYCRA T400 fibre brings to our offering and we look forward to a positive reception from our customers.”
