INVISTA launches bio-derived Lycra

INVISTA introduces the only commercial offering of a bio-derived spandex available globally and for use in a wide variety of apparel fabrics and garments.

INVISTA introduces the only commercial offering of a bio-derived spandex available globally and for use in a wide variety of apparel fabrics and garments. Approximately 70 per cent by weight of the new Lycra® bio-derived spandex fibre comes from a renewable source made from dextrose derived from corn. The use of a renewable feedstock in the making of this new Lycra® bio-derived fibre results in a lower CO2 emissions footprint than spandex produced using traditional raw materials.

With this new Lycra® brand offering, INVISTA is providing retailers and manufacturers of stretch fabrics a spandex fibre option that can impact the overall lifecycle analysis of the fabric and garment. The new fibre is made to INVISTAs high standards and specifications. Therefore, INVISTA does not anticipate a need to re-engineer fabrics and finishing processes, or garment patterns.
