Teijin Frontier to exhibit at Performance Days
The Teijin Frontier stand (No. I10) will showcase hybrid materials with a focus on DELTAPEAK Opening a new window series that offer excellent combinations of performance, appearance and texture for sportswear.
Specific exhibits will include the following:
Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric offers a well-balanced combination of softness, durability, elasticity, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency. Wind-blocking properties can be added utilizing its dense, flat-knit surface.
4-dimensional bulky DELTAPEAK®
This new sweat-suit fabric is the new addition to the DELTAPEAK series. It offers a soft texture, high-bulkiness and lightweight due to its unique four-layer structure. The booth will showcase a new DELTAPEAK line—a two-in-one sweat-suit fabric that combines water-repelling and sweat-absorbing properties.
This fiber features a unique, highly modified cross section of eight projecting fins aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Notable advantages include rapid wicking and drying as well as useful bulkiness. Another type of OCTA is a comfort material integrated with insulation and lining.
Fluorocarbon-free water-repellent materials
Fluorocarbon, a halocarbon in which certain hydrogen atoms are replaced with fluorine, is a greenhouse gas targeted under the Kyoto Protocol. Fluorine buildup is thought to be harmful to the human body and the environment. Teijin Frontier develops durable and water-repellent fluorocarbon-free materials as part of its commitment to environmental protection.
SOLOTEX® Opening a new window
Teijin Frontier’s polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is highly soft, stretchable, shape retaining and durable. As a partially bio-derived material, it also helps to conserve fossil resources.
