Yarn & Fiber
Teijin to participate in ISPO Munich
The booth (Hall: C4, Booth: No.103) will showcase high-function materials that offer excellent combinations of comfort and performance for sportswear. The stand also will showcase recycled and bio-derived materials developed under Teijin Frontier’s THINK ECOTM initiative for environmentally friendly solutions.
Teijin Frontier’s exhibit will include:
Next-generation fabric achieves a high-level integration of physical properties, functionality and quality. Along with softness, durability and elasticity, it also offers ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface. A newly developed DELTAPEAK® sweat–suit fabric, bulky, lightweight and extra-soft owing to its 4-dimensional structure, will also be exhibited.
OCTA® has a unique, highly modified cross-section comprising eight projections aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Its notable advantages include half the weight of polyester of the same diameter, rapid wicking and drying, thermal insulation and useful bulkiness, making this another great material for sportswear. The exhibit will feature OCTA® NEO, which offers a pleasingly smooth texture as well as OCTA® functionality.
Teijin Frontier’s high-strength polyester nanofiber has a diameter of just 700 nanometers, yet its surface area is several ten times larger than that of conventional fiber, resulting in positive-grip, low-slippage surfaces. It also is cool, wiping and non-transparent, making it a highly useful material for various fields, including sportswear and innerwear.
This cushiony, durable and breathable material is an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, including bra cups and supporters for sports.
High-grade artificial leather CORDLEY® is lightweight, durable and easy to handle, making it great for environmentally friendly sports applications such as balls and shoes.
