Characteristics of spandex fabric

Spandex has many characteristics and is a kind of clothing with a wide range of applications. First of all, spandex fabric has the property of being resistant to stretching, which can adapt to the tensile external force with greater strength. The spandex can be stretched freely 4 to 7 times, and after the external force is released, it can quickly recover the original length. Known as the "elastic champion in traditional clothing", high elongation and high elasticity are the biggest characteristics of spandex fabrics.


It cannot be used alone and can be interwoven with any other artificial or natural fibers. It does not change the appearance of the fabric, it is an invisible fiber that can greatly improve the performance of the fabric. Secondly, the spandex fabric has stable performance, good chemical resistance and perspiration resistance.


Thirdly, the spandex fabric has good dyeing properties and can be dyed into various colors. Dyes have a strong affinity for spandex fibers. Spandex can adapt to most types of dyes. After printing and dyeing, the colors are gorgeous, and it is not easy to fade under normal conditions. The spandex fabric has a fine texture and a smooth touch, and is easy to dry after washing.


As people put forward new requirements for fabrics, such as light weight, comfortable fit, soft texture, etc., the proportion of spandex fabrics in the production of clothes is also increasing. Clothing made of spandex is comfortable to wear, can adapt to the needs of deformation of various parts of the body, and can reduce the restraint of clothing on the body, which is welcomed by consumers.


Spandex is currently mainly used in men's and women's clothing, sportswear, swimwear, tights, socks (short, medium and high socks), gloves, elastic bands, lace bands, knee pads, wrist guards, elastic bandages, etc.


Trousers benefit from warp elasticity, providing great comfort and freedom of movement. Therefore, by adding Lycra to women's ready-to-wear garments such as trousers and coats, the folds can be easily and automatically restored, and the clothes are more relaxed and not easily deformed. They are flexible and feel new. Even if we make rigorous suits, coats, etc., there is no sense of urgency and cramp. Knitwear such as undershirts, underwear, and bodybuilding pants add a little lycra, which is fit and comfortable.
