Perfect Spandex Swimwear Suits – A Brilliant Guide

A swimsuit gives you the freedom to enjoy the waters without you having to worry about a wardrobe malfunction. The bikini or a one piece in a luxurious fabric is great for clicking pictures at the beach but when it comes to picking something that can make you really enjoy your swimming in the waters, it’s spandex swimsuit. There used to be a time in the history of swimwear when practicality and style did not co-exist and if you wanted a swimwear suit that would be super comfortable it was definitely not something that you could show-off at the beach

Things have changed so much since then with spandex swimwear being designed to look chic and entering the genre of athleisure. Even the swimwear material which is now being used by designers lets you experiment with the design of the swimsuit. The swimsuit material is very important and depends on the weight you give to durability, fit and stretchability.

Spandex still remains the top pick for anyone who is really serious about his or her swimming wear.

• Polyester

Polyester swimsuit fabric is not one of the softest swimwear stretch fabric but it is picked up for some of the practical qualities it offers. Polyester blended with spandex gives an improved elasticity to the swimwear and is a popular selection. The best part about going in for polyester is that firstly it is chlorine resistant and secondly its color doesn’t fade off like other swimwear fabrics. This fabric ranks high on breathability, dries out quickly and is quite a low maintenance one.

• Nylon

Another choice for swimwear is nylon which is not as long lasting as polyester and is also not chlorine resistant. Nylon, however, is a lightweight fabric and gives a good fit. Though nylon is abrasion resistant like polyester it does not have good moisture absorbency.

Both of these when paired with spandex fiber gives the wearer a new and freeing swimming experience. These fibers when combined with spandex give birth to a new improved swimsuit which aids in reducing drag in water and simultaneously boosts performance while providing you the maximum comfort and allowing free movements.

ROLE OF SPANDEX IN DIAPERS

 

role of spandex in diapers

Diaper is defined as “a basic garment for infants consisting of a folded cloth or other absorbent material drawn up between the legs and fastened about the waist” by Merriam Webster dictionary.

Now based on the requirement diapers are primarily used for infants and young children but they are also now used for elderly people and for adults suffering with mental or physical disabilities. Now-a-days people have started using them for pets too, so diapers have become an integral part of our lives.

Disposable diapers have now completely replaced the traditional re-usable diapers made of cotton fabric used earlier. Disposable diapers are mostly made using the following components and materials:

1) Polyethylene film

2) Polypropylene Non-woven Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic

3) Absorbent core – Wood pulp fluff

4) Super Absorbent Polymer

5) Elastane /Spandex fiber

6) Quick wicking layer

7) Adhesive Hot melts and Elastomeric

8) Fastening tape Stick type/Hook and loop type

9) Moisturizer lotions and fragrance lotions

10) Breathable/Cloth-like back sheet

Here we will focus on the role of Elastane /Spandex fiber in diapers.

In disposable diapers usually polyurethane or polyester foam elastics, and synthetic rubber or spandex elastics are used. But due to their properties now-days mostly spandex elastics are used.

Dry spinning is the most efficient and widely used way of manufacturing spandex filament. At Indorama Industries Limited we have since the beginning used “Dry-spinning” to manufacture our spandex yarn.

In simpler terms “Dry spinning” of spandex is explained as below:

1.  In this process initially raw materials are dissolved together to form a solvent which is then used for further process. The dissolution takes place in presence of a volatile solvent, which evaporates when heat is applied to it

2. The solution produced from above step is then filtered to make it suitable for further processing

Different-Segments-where-spandex-has-ventured-into-1

Spandex since its invention in 1956 has changed the direction of the textile industry. Developed as an alternative to rubber, spandex has completely taken over the stretch market in clothing and various other segments of the textile industry. Spandex not only gives ultimate stretch but also soft feel and desirable comfort along with required strength when paired with right fibre for multiple uses. Along with textile industry spandex has also found its various uses in hospitality and industrial industries.

From a t-shirt to automobiles spandex is used everywhere, where even a slight bit of stretch is required. Spandex was first used in making ladies foundation garments like pantyhose, stockings etc. Then it forayed into sportswear (cycling shorts etc.), dancing wear, tights, and swimwear. Then the time came of stretch denims. Nowadays with technical advances the range of use of spandex has increased more than ever.
