Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon Unveils New Spandex for Endurance Sports in the US

SEOUL, South Korea — June 19, 2019 — Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon has pinned his faith on Hyosung TNC’s new functional fibers to expand its share in the sportswear fabric market amid mounting consumer interest in “challenging and healthy lifestyle.”

Hyosung TNC, which maintains the largest share of the global spandex fiber market, is participating in the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, an international expo on outdoor and sportswear fibers and functional fabrics, in Denver, Colorado, the USA, from June 18-20. Hyosung TNC will showcase its exceptionally elastic and functional new spandex fiber, “creora® ActiFit,” for the first time.

Creora® ActiFit has stronger elasticity than previous spandex fibers. ActiFit is suitable to garments for demanding sports because it offers muscle support and plenty of stretch. The new fiber also features reinforced UV and chlorine resistance so that it can hardly be snapped or deformed by sunlight or swimming pool water. These properties make the fiber ideal for sportswear for cycling, marathon, swimming, triathlon and adventure racing, among others. It is expected to help improve athletic performance.

“These days, customers want to consume products that satisfy their needs in light of function and design and that also have environment-friendly values. Hyosung TNC always tries to identify customer needs through international trade fairs and reflect them in its products,” Chairman Cho said, “In the long term, we are striving to lead not only the fiber market but also the fashion trends of functional clothing.”
