Invista will debut new Lycra Sport technology at Outdoor
Invista will debut the next generation of Lycra Sport technology at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah which runs August 3-6, 2016.
“Lycra Sport technology is scientifically engineered to deliver exceptional comfort, fit and support to stretch activewear,” the world’s largest integrated producers of polymers and fibres said.
“The new platform combines the proven stretch technology of Lycra fibre with demanding testing standards that measure fabric performance descriptors on a simplified 1-10 scale of three indexes,” it added.
According to Invista, the Power Index measures the compression delivered by the garment’s fabric and so, higher the Power Index, the greater the shaping or compression effect.
The Comfort Index relates to consumers often complaining about being uncomfortable in compression or shaping garments. Here too, higher the comfort index, the more comfort the wearer experiences.
“On the other hand, the innovative new Energy Index rates the energy exerted by the body due to fabric construction,” Invista informed.
“The lower the Energy Index, the lower the effort needed to move the fabric, making it ideal for competitive sports activities,” the company observed.
The new Lycra Sport platform also offers mills a simplified fabric certification process; enabling clients to access hang tags and other promotional materials.
