Abhay Chappia, CMD, Attiva Industries said, “India is a much wider market as compared to the neighboring countries and is driven by production as well as consumption. INVISTA’s breakthrough trademark innovations like LYCRA® and COOLMAX® have catered extensively to the growth of the active wear industry. Our customers now demand for LYCRA® SPORT and COOLMAX® fabric because of their high recovery, shape retention, moisture management and other functional properties. Moreover, it is a challenge to dye the yarn to black perfectly but it has been overcome with the introduction of COOLMAX® BLACK fiber.”

Following were the high performance fibre technologies and fabric innovation which were presented by INVISTA:
- COOLMAX® BLACK fibre is a new offering with a view to support the growing trend of black color in various apparel segments specially socks and sportswear. COOLMAX® BLACK fibre uses spun-in carbon black pigment technology in addition to the usual tetra-channel cross section of COOLMAX® fibre that gives the garments using this fiber a consistent black color, wash durability along with the moisture management characteristics promised by COOLMAX® brand.
- THERMOLITE® fabric: The lightweight warmth of THERMOLITE® fabric and insulation is provided by core fibers that are engineered and constructed to add appropriate levels of comfort without adding weight.
- LYCRA® dualFX® fabric made with patented technology from INVISTA, this fabric offers super stretch denim with extra comfortable fit that lasts longer. The heart of the technology involves combining LYCRA® fibre and LYCRA®T400® fibre weaved in the same fabric to give the garment high stretch, high recovery and low shrinkage.
