Deutsch: Elastan, im nordamerikanischen Sprachraum Spandex, in anderen Ländern elastane, ist eine äußerst dehnbare Kunstfaser. Sie ähnelt Gummi, hat aber eine höhere Festigkeit und ist haltbarer.
English: Spandex or elastane is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is strong, but less durable than its major non-synthetic competitor, natural Latex. It is a polyurethane-polyurea copolymer that was invented in 1959 by chemists C. L. Sandquist and Joseph Shivers at DuPont's Benger Laboratory in Waynesboro. When first introduced, it revolutionized many areas of the clothing industry. Brand names for spandex include Lycra (made by Koch subsidiary Invista, previously a part of DuPont), Elaspan (also Invista), Creora (Hyosung), ROICA and Dorlastan (Asahi Kasei), Linel (Fillattice), and ESPA (Toyobo).
