Comment - Lycra® is the most familiar spandex fiber, and is DuPont's brand name for its spandex fiber. An interesting fact about spandex is that it was developed as a substitute for rubber. And, when it was first introduced in 1959, it totally revolutionized the swimwear and foundations industry. Although it has poor strength, it stretches over 500%. So, the excellent stretch of spandex compensates for the fact that it's a weak fiber.
