Spandex fiber is manufactured in the United States by DuPont™, and is called Lycra. This fiber was invented in 1959 by DuPont chemist Joseph Shivers. Lycra has excellent stretch and recovery properties. It can be stretched over 500% without breaking, and it can be stretched repeatedly and still recover its original length.
Spandex fiber is more durable than rubber, soft, smooth and supple. Even more: it is resistant to body oils, perspiration, lotions or detergents. Lycra has no static or pilling problems. Spandex produced in Europe is called Elastane.
