Long-lasting performance fit

XLANCE® features a unique high performance fit thanks to its dosed elasticity which helps supporting the body and enhancing its movements. And this unique elasticity is long-lasting thanks to its inherent resistance to UV rays and sweat.



XLANCE® is extraordinarily resistant to chlorine thanks to its capacity to resist oxidative degradation. Upon exposure to swimming pool conditions, it retains its physical properties for hundreds of hours.

Images of competition garments containing either XLANCE® or spandex after 5 months of swimwear test: XLANCE® remains fully intact while spandex fiber is broken and fragmented by oxidative degradation.


PA6-based warp-knitted fabrics containing either 20% XLANCE® or 20% Spandex dipped in a 4-ppm-chlorine solution while under continuous dynamic stretch for over 200h.

Low microplastics release



PA6-based warp-knitted fabrics containing either 20% XLANCE® or 20% spandex exposed to a combination of sunscreens and sunlight (Xenotest – ISO 105-B02, for 200 hours) and manually stretched, to simulate a typical beachwear/outdoor use.


XLANCE® microfiber release is negligible, whereas spandex yarn releases an average of 20 g of microfibers per kg of fabric.

XLANCE® has no tendency for fragmentation and microfiber shedding, not even after exposure to harsh agents, weathering or ageing, thanks to its extreme chemical/physical resistance.
