Indorama has released a new Inviya variant named I-400. This is a fourth generation polymer. I-400 polymer is robust in terms of chemical composition along with high elongation and excellent recovery at the finished garments stage. The high elongation provides a wider window to yarn manufacturers during ring spinning and texturizing. Robust chemical composition is achieved by a proprietary recipe which leads to stronger resistance to alkali, acids, chlorine, a characteristic vital for garment wash and finish.
The modulus properties of the polymer in terms of running load lead to excellent recovery and minimal growth at the garment stage, which is a key requirement for active and sports clothing, whether it is a woven or knitted outfit. Above all I-400 strongly contributes to retaining the shape of garment after even repeated washes and hence enhances the active life of the garment, leading to customer satisfaction.
Indorama is synonymous with pioneering advancements in manufacturing of polymers for applications in textile and apparel production. Indorama launched Inviya, the freedom fiber, in 2012. This is an advanced spandex fiber that can be readily used together with cotton or synthetic filament yarns. Inviya is specifically conceived for applications expanding across stretch denim, sportswear, active wear, bottom wear, intimate garments, innerwear, socks, surgical, medical applications and much more.
