The fiber is obtained from the reaction of glycol and compounds of diisocyanate.
'Elastane' is used as the common name of elastomeric fibers in Europe.

It is used for;
Surgical band and stays production.

Elastane fiber is produced as mono or multi filament in continuous length.
The rate of amorphous structure is high in the composition of all the fibers.
The fiber is produced transparent, glossy and matte.
The value of elongation at break of the fiber is between 400-800%.
The rate of moisture absorption is 1-1,4%.

High flexibility
High tear resistance
Resistant to UV rays
Resistant to sunlight
Resistant to weak bases
Resistant to chemicals
Resistant to bacteria and microorganisms
No tendance to pilling
