Teijin to Participate in ISPO Munich

Tokyo, Japan, January 27, 2015 --- The Teijin Group announced today that in an ongoing effort to further expand sales in the global sports market it will participate in ISPO Munich, the world biggest sportswear exhibition, at Messe München GmbH, from February 5 to 8.
Teijin’s booth (Hall: C2, Booth: No.100) will showcase technical materials and products offering exceptional comfort and solutions that help reduce consumption and thereby CO2 emissions due to the use of fossil resources.

The exhibit will include:
This lightweight, thin, three-layer fabric made with water-repellent polyester fibers achieves excellent anti-perspiration comfort through enhanced absorption, quick drying and prevention of chills and stickiness.
This lightweight, high-performance material, both waterproof and breathable, features recycled polyester laminated with a thin but highly durable polyester film. ECO STORM is ideal for eco-friendly outdoor clothing.
Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric realizes a highly integrated combination of physicality, functionality and quality. It offers softness, durability, stretching, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface.
• Odor-Control – Type EP
An innovative pH-balanced polyester material that does not irritate human skin, suppresses the growth of harmful bacteria by keeping the surface of clothing attached with sweat weakly acidic, and exhibits antibacterial properties.
• Bio-derived materials
SOLOTEX, a polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber, is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable, and is also partially bio-derived. Other partially bio-derived products will also be exhibited.
Teijin’s elk is a lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material that serves as an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, such as mattresses. It is also environmentally friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated.
