Also we have sustainable spandex enables 10~15 ℃ lower fabric heating setting temperature than traditional spandex, such as Easy-setting Spandex, which benefits to saving energy within your production supply chain. Also helps to increase the softness and whiteness of nylon/modal fabric.

For sportswear, we have functional spandex products such as QIANXI Acid-dyeable Spandex, which has high dyes uptake rate with a good color fastness to wash. Help to solve the grin-through problem of normal spandex and increase the "color saturation" of the nylon/spandex elastic fabric for yoga wear, leggings, T-shirts, etc.

The swimming pool water always contain active chlorine when normal spandex will gradually lose its strength and elasticity after long times exposure to pool water. The swimwear will become out of shape and bring customers unpleasant experience.
