Anidex is a synthetic fibre which has permanent stretch and recovery properties. Although it has less stretch than Lycra it launders better, and at higher temperatures. Anidex is used across a wide range of garments, and has properties such as excellent resistance to sunlight fading, oxidation and chlorine bleach. It is primarily used to improve the comfort and fit of garments. Anidex fibres are man-made polymers produced solely from a chemical compound.
