FABRIC SUPLEX WHAT IS IT: PROPERTIES AND
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MATERIAL
Yes, the material is particularly elastic,
it stretches perfectly in any direction.
The unique properties determined the
area of use of matter - the production of costumes for circus performers,
gymnasts, as well as for tailoring sports leotards and theatrical outfits.
The history of the creation of the material
The 20th century is significant in that a
large amount of research was carried out to create new textile materials with
improved performance. For the first time, figure-hugging knitwear was discovered
by the famous Coco Chanel.
In the process of connecting threads from
different materials, supplex fabric was created, ideal for swimming suits, for
In the manufacture of fabric, 4-12
synthetic fibers are used. For example:
- lycra threads;
Symbiosis of threads in percentage can be
different. Matter composition has a variety of operational properties.
Biflex fabric with increased inclusion of
lycra threads (approximately 80%) is characterized by high elasticity: it
stretches three times its original size. The presence of microfiber in the
composition makes the matter water-repellent. And lurex fibers provide shine.
Matter is mass-produced, supplied from
Egyptian, Turkish factories.
The versatility of knitted fabric makes it
in demand. Among the advantages are:
- Elasticity. The canvas can be pulled in any
direction, after which the matter will instantly take its original shape.
- Convenience. Supplex does not constrain

given any shades, even neon. They create the effect of gloss, as well as matte
and sparkling, apply various prints.
Speaking of the pros, one cannot fail to
mention the safety of the fabric. It is non-toxic and, thanks to its smooth
surface, does not cause irritation or allergies.
The disadvantages are minor, so supplex is
in demand among consumers.
Characteristics and properties of the
Biflex fabric has unique properties. This
- Reliability and extensibility. The material
stretches well in different directions, by 300%, and does not tear.
- Does not wrinkle, does not shrink when
- Water repellent effect. There are no stains
on the fabric.
- Perfectly fits the body.
- High density (70–220 g per 1 m²). Matter
does not shine through.
- Ease of maintenance. Bodyflex can be simply
washed in warm water using non-aggressive powders.

- It accepts various colors without problems,
does not lose color for a long time, does not lose brightness under sunlight,

- When choosing high-quality products, it is
correct to look at the label, which describes in detail the composition of the
biflex material. Almost all fabric components are synthetic.
The composition of the supplex can be:
Lycra. Well-stretching synthetics made of
polyurethane fibers, which increases by 6-8 times, does not change at all, does
not deform. Lycra is also resistant to dirt and bleach. This material is also
called spandex or elastane. Interestingly, the Spider-Man costume from the
legendary movie is made of spandex.
Lurex. "Metallic" thread that
adds shine. It is also created from a chemical film, the shade of which is
given by a unique glue. Traditionally, lurex is added to other materials to
give a "sparkle". A separate type of matter is not produced from this
knitwear, since it is characterized by strong rigidity and is not strong at the
Microfiber. Material made of polyester
threads, wrinkle-resistant, durable, wear-resistant. The fabric does not shed
or roll, dries almost instantly and does not absorb water, sweat.
Nylon. Material made of polyamide fibers,
durable and moisture-absorbing material - synthetics.
Supplex of different composition is
actively used, it is indispensable in the tailoring of ammunition for athletes,
for gymnasts and swimmers, synchronized swimmers.
