LYCRA® dualFX™ Fabrics

LYCRA® dualFX™ fabrics were created by the integration of LYCRA® fiber and LYCRA® T400® fiber in a single fabric for extra stretch and most importantly extra recovery.

The new combination technology meets expectations of both consumers and producers that can get super stretch jeans which are comfortable to wear by minimizing the level of constraint against the body and also retain their shape and fit over time thanks to high stretch of LYCRA® fiber and the excellent recovery and low shrinkage power of LYCRA® T400® fiber.

The benefits of LYCRA® dualFX™ fabrics are:

  • High Stretch
  • High Recovery
  • Low Growth
  • Excellent dimensional Stability
