"The focus of all of these innovations is to contribute to increasing the competitiveness of our customers, reducing downtime costs and increase yield and quality," says Jorge Mazzaferro, Business Director for Central and South America.
Creels with over-end-take-off technology provide automatic change of spandex, without stopping the machine. Transfer Tail system is an innovative way of unwinding LYCRA HyFit™ fiber, which can improve the quality in the transfer of the fibers when using creels with over-end-take-off technology.

"Customers of LYCRA HyFit ™ fiber brand will enjoy the many benefits of these innovations and INVISTA is very excited to be presenting the South American disposable diapers market with these advancements," said Kristin Altimari, Global Communication and Marketing Manager for the LYCRA HyFit™ brand.
LYCRA HyFit™ fiber is used along with other raw materials in the manufacturing process of disposable diapers, specifically applied where requires adjustment to the body, such as legs and waist. When used for this purpose, LYCRA HyFit™ fiber provides comfort for babies and adults, also increasing productivity in the personal care and hygiene disposable diapers industry due to its higher unload force and higher draft capability compared to rubber. This results in less elastic required per unit, minimizes breaks in the customer process, increase yield which can reduce manufacturing cost.
