The Teijin Frontier will showcase hybrid materials
Teijin Frontier, Teijin Group’s fibre and products converting firm, will show high-performance fabrics at Performance Days expo for functional fabrics used in sportswear, athleisure, corporatewear, and workwear, in stand 110. The show will take place in Munich, Germany on November 28 and 29, 2018. It will be Teijin Frontier’s ninth appearance at the event.
The Teijin Frontier stand will showcase hybrid materials with a focus on Deltapeak series that offer excellent combinations of performance, appearance, and texture for sportswear, Teijin said.
Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric, Deltapeak, offers a well-balanced combination of softness, durability, elasticity, ultraviolet protection, and anti-transparency. Wind-blocking properties can be added utilising its dense, flat-knit surface.
The new 4-dimensional bulky Deltapeak 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.
The Octa fibre features a unique, highly-modified cross section of eight projecting fins aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fibre. 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, a halocarbon in which certain hydrogen atoms are replaced with fluorine, is a greenhouse gas targeted under the Kyoto Protocol. Fluorine build-up 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.
Teijin Frontier’s polytrimethylene terephthalate fibre, Solotex, is highly soft, stretchable, shape retaining and durable. As a partially bio-derived material, it also helps to conserve fossil resources. (GK)
