Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber and product converting company, will promote its ongoing expansion in the global sports market by participating in ISPO Munich, the world’s biggest sportswear exhibition, in Munich, Germany from January 28th to 31st.
The booth (Hall C4, Booth 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 Eco” initiative for environment-friendly solutions.
Teijin Frontier’s exhibits will include:
Deltapeak is next-generation fabrics that achieve high-level integration of physical properties, functionality and quality. Along with softness, durability and elasticity, it 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 that is bulky, light in weight and extra-soft owing to its 4-dimensional structure will also be on exhibit.
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 functionality.
Nanofront high-strength polyester nanofiber has a diameter of just 700 nanometers, yet its surface area is several ten times larger than that of conventional fibers, 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.
Elk 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 environment-friendly sports applications, such as balls and shoes.
