Dyeability The dyeability of fibers is controlled by both chemical and physical properties. Fibers that have polar functional groups in their molecular repeat units are easier to be dyed.
The family of nylons consists of several different types. Nylon 6/6, nylon 6, nylon 6/10, nylon 6/12, nylon 11, nylon 12, and nylon 6-6/6 copolymer are the most common.
creora® Power Fit is a spandex with high power and excellent heat resistance, which maintains its fabric power even setting at high temperature or re-dyeing.
