T400® technology delivers excellent performance and aesthetics in applications
that require low to moderate stretch. It is based on LYCRA® T400® fiber, a
multi-component yarn in which different polymers are joined together within
each filament. When exposed to heat, each polymer shrinks to a different
degree, producing a smooth helical crimp. Because the crimp is not mechanically
induced, LYCRA® T400® fiber gives greater, more durable stretch and
recovery, and a softer, smoother hand than textured yarns that are used for
structure of LYCRA® T400® fiber also provides the added benefit of good
moisture management to help wearers feel cool and dry.
T400® technology can be applied to just about any fabric that currently uses
textured yarns. Applications include denims, jobwear, shirtings and other lightweight
wovens, circular knits, and socks.
