Globe Manufacturing To Expand Spandex Line

Globe Manufacturing Co., Fall River, Mass., has announced that it will expand its chlorine-resistant type S-17 B spandex to swimsuit and related fashion markets.Weve known that Glospan® Type S-17 B has excellent chlorine resistance, but tests also show that the fiber is superior to other spandex fibers on the market for UV protection, and protection against breakdown due to exposure to suntan oils and body oils associated with perspiration, said Jeff Enfield, production manager for fabric applications, Globe Manufacturing.According to the company, it is allocating significant manufacturing capacity to Type S-17 B fiber production in order to satisfy the demand for this spandex fiber in swimwear and other markets.
