Teijin Develops Advanced Outerwear Fabric Offering High Comfort and High Performance

Tokyo, Japan, June 16, 2014 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-products converting company, announced that it has developed an advanced, high-comfort, high-density fabric, called DELTA 2000, that offers excellent performance for use in outerwear.

DELTA 2000 is the latest addition to Teijin Frontier’s DELTA series of precisely balanced high-performance materials suited ideally to sporting applications. DELTA 2000 has a distinctive structure comprising a warp of densely and finely crimped bulky yarn and a weft of ultra-thin yarn. Airspaces minimized three-dimensionally achieve 2,000 mm of water resistance, while an aerated fine-waffle structure provides excellent water-shedding performance.

As an uncoated fabric, DELTA 2000 also offers excellent moisture permeability, a comfortably soft texture and a luxurious surface appearance.

Going forward, Teijin Frontier expects to develop sport, fashion and uniform applications for its new high-performance fabric, DELTA 2000.
