LYCRA® ADAPTIV Fiber Offerings

We have combined the functional benefits of two powerhouse technologies to create an elevated wearing experience in stretch performance garments:

LYCRA® ADAPTIV XTRA LIFE fiber is the solution for durable swimwear that lasts up to 10x longer than swimsuits with unprotected spandex, while also providing shaping, dynamic comfort, a wider fit window, and enabling easy donning and doffing.

LYCRA® ADAPTIV BLACK fiber is for long-lasting activewear that helps resist fiber damage caused by exposure to UV rays, sunscreen, and anti-chafing creams. Create size-inclusive garments that deliver a second-skin fit, enhanced comfort, and pure black color with no grin-through.

Create Durable Textiles and Garments
