Invista starts LYCRA fibre production line in Singapore

TUAS, SINGAPORE: Invista announced the start-up of a new production line in Singapore designed specifically to produce a series of Specialty LYCRA fibre products to serve the growing innovation needs of the Asian region. The new production line will initially focus on production of Easy Set LYCRA fibre, a specialty type of LYCRA fibre with improved heat set efficiency and is targeted for use with sensitive fibres, such as silk or cellulosics. By heating these fabrics at a lower temperature, the risk of thermal degradation reduces as well as the fabric yellowing under the heat.

“The Singapore plant was built with the most innovative and modern engineering capabilities to manufacture the best LYCRA fibre technology. Producing Easy Set LYCRA fibre here reinforces our belief that the Singapore plant is a strategic asset for Invista Apparel, to help serve and supply quality fibres to customers in South Asia, and ASEAN, as well as global sourcing value-chains,” said Dan Kotkin, Executive Vice-President Eastern Region, Invista.

The Easy Set LYCRA fibre line is part of more than $25 million worth of investment that has been made over in Invista’s Singapore asset in the last 24 months to support the growth of the Apparel and Personal Care segments in the region.
