SOLOTEX® Nanofiber offers high comfort thanks to soft, shape-retaining and stretchable SOLOTEX®. Moreover, since the surface area of nanofiber is tens of times greater than normal fibers, SOLOTEX® Nanofiber also has excellent gripping power, cooling and wiping property. In addition, it is highly conforming and slip resistant.

Teijin Frontier is also promoting SOLOTEX® Nanofiber products for other applications, such as motorcycle gloves and medical gloves. Annual sales are expected to reach 60 million yen by the fiscal year in March 2021. In addition, Teijin Frontier is pursuing the development of new nanofiber made of materials such as polypropylene and nylon to meet diverse consumer needs.
