Teijin to Participate in Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics

Tokyo, Japan, March 11, 2015 --- The Teijin Group announced today that Nantong Teijin Co., Ltd., the group’s textile manufacturing and sales company based in Nantong, China, will participate in Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2015, which will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from March 18 to 20.

The Nantong Teijin booth (Hall 8, 2nd floor, Stand B11) will present high-performance fabrics and environmentally friendly solutions to promote further business in the Chinese clothing markets for sports/casual, fashion and uniforms, among others.

The exhibit will feature:
- MICROFT, a moisture-permeable, water-repellent fabric produced with functional, high-quality microfiber. The exhibit will highlight the laminated version, which combines soft texture with enhanced waterproof properties up to water pressure of 10,000 mm or greater. Another version, which features thinness and ultra-low weight, has a high reputation among makers of top outdoor clothing brands.

- The booth will also showcase environmentally friendly solutions, such as chemically recycled and recyclable materials marketed in collaboration with Zhejiang Jiaren New Material Co., Ltd., a Teijin group company engaged in the chemical recycling of polyester. Also presented will be SOLOTEX, a polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber that is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable. As it is partially bio-derived, SOLOTEX helps to conserve fossil resources.
