Teijin to Participate in Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2014

Tokyo, Japan, July 28, 2014 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-products converting company, announced today that it will showcase high-performance polyester products at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2014, a leading international sports trade fair to be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, U.S.A. from August 6 to 9. 
The Teijin Frontier’s booth (stand: MR150C) will feature a number of advanced hybrid products, including the new DELTA 2000 fabric that adds comfortable texture and fashionable appearance to high-performance sportswear. This and the other two principle exhibits planned by Teijin Frontier are environmentally friendly materials that can be recycled with Teijin's ECO CIRCLE, the world's first closed-loop recycling system for turning used polyester into new fibers that offer the quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
DELTA 2000
This brand-new polyester fabric features a distinctive structure that achieves 2,000 mmH20 of water resistance without any coating. It offers excellent moisture permeability, a high degree of water repellency and lightness, as well as a comfortably soft hand and luxurious surface appearance. 
Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric enables a highly integrated combination of physicality, functionality and quality. It offers softness, durability, a number of other useful functions such as stretching, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency as well as snag resistance property due to its dense, flat-knit surface.
This water repelling polyester layer fabric from Teijin Frontier does a superb job of preventing emergency water mark. It’s effectively absorbing sweat, and making water mark invisible from the outside. It also maintains its performance despite repeated washings.
