According to the U.S Federal Trade Commission (FTC), “Spandex is a manufactured fiber in which the fiber-forming substance is a long-chain synthetic polymer comprising at least 85% of segmented polyurethane.” This fiber, also called elastane, is a synthetic long-chain polyurethane-polyurea copolymer composed of rigid diisocyanate segments and flexible macro-glycol segments arranged in a specific order. The fiber is characterized by exceptional stretch and recovery properties, with the elongation at break of around 400% to 600%. These characteristics entail its wide-scale use in a diverse set of applications in textile & clothing and healthcare industries. Some prominent areas of application for spandex fibers include sportswear, casual clothing, home furnishings, and undergarments. Medical and healthcare-related applications of spandex fibers include diapers, compression stockings & hoses, and bandages. According to a new market report published by Persistence Market Research titled, “Global Market Study on Spandex Market: High demand for stretchable fabrics in clothing sector to drive growth”, the global spandex market has been estimated to reach US$ 4,834.8 Mn in 2015, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 10.3% over 2015-2021, to reach US$ 8,704.6 Mn by 2021. In the recent past, there has been a steady increase in demand for spandex-based stretchable clothing & apparel in developing regions. Steadily rising population, coupled with increasing disposable income, in these regions is expected to drive the growth of the global spandex market over the forecast period. Besides, increasing demand from healthcare-related applications is another major factor driving the growth of the global spandex market during the forecast period. On the contrary, relatively slower economic growth in some major clothing & apparel-importing countries is expected to act as a deterrent to the growth of the global spandex market over the forecast period. Revenue from the global spandex market is expected to increase from US$ 4,834.8 Mn in 2015 to US$ 8,704.6 Mn by 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period.

Wool Textile Journal | Year: 2014

The application of spandex in the textile industry especially the wool spinning industry was briefly covered. Based on the production process of spandex, spandex technical modification on the current progress was introduced. For dry spinning spandex production, the influence of proportioning on properties of products was comparative analyzed, and in-depth discussion on the composition and structure of polyurethane was carried out. The main raw material included PTMEG, MDI and amines, while properties of spandex involved tensile strength, elongation strength, and breaking elongation. The results showed that; the higher the CR value (the molar ratio of MDI and PTMEG ) , the more hard segment ratio of raw materials, the higher the spandex stress, the higher the intensity, the greater the elongation at break. The influence of proportioning on other properties (such as heat resistance, dyeing, etc.) need to be further explored.

Carbon nanotubes have for the first time been demonstrated as a novel and effective colorant for synthetic fibers such as poly(p-phenylene terephthalamide). Compared with the conventional carbon black, the nanotube colorant was found to be more uniformly dispersed in the polymer matrix with a better coloration effect and higher coloration stability. The nanotube colorant also enabled much improved electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties compared with the pure polymer and carbon black-colorized polymer fibers. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

A series of nanaoscale aramid-based adsorbents were prepared by the functionalization of poly (p-phenylene terephthalamide) (PPTA) with different content of ethylenediamine (EDA). Their structures were characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, and elemental analysis. Metal ions, including Hg2+, Pb2+, Ag+, Cu2+, Cd2+, and Ni2+ were chosen as the models to explore the binding behaviors of PPTA–ECH–EDA in aqueous medium. Results showed that PPTA–ECH–EDA exhibited higher adsorption capacity for Hg2+ due to their nanoscale structures. In particular, the adsorption rate was so high that equilibrium was achieved within 15 min for Hg2+. The adsorption of Hg2+ on PPTA–ECH–EDA followed the pseudo second-order model well. Langmuir and Freundlich models were employed to fit the isothermal adsorption, and the results revealed that Freundlich isotherm was a better model to predict the experimental data. The adsorption mechanism was revealed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. It is preconceived that PPTA–ECH–EDA could be used as an effective adsorbent for fast removal of heavy ions from wastewater. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York
