Teijin Frontier to Exhibit Eco-friendly Sports and Daily-use Fabrics at “Performance Days” Fabric Fair

Tokyo, Japan, April 24, 2015 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, and its subsidiary Teijin Frontier Europe GmbH, announced today that they will showcase a range of high-performance fabrics for sports and daily use at Performance Days, a semiannual show presenting functional fabrics for sports and work. The show will take place at MTC World of Fashion in Munich, Germany on April 28 and 29.

Teijin Frontier stand (no. 112) will showcase products that meet increasing demands for sports and daily-use wear by combining high performance and comfort. The stand will also exhibit Teijin Frontier’s environmentally friendly solutions that help conserve fossil resources and reduce CO2 emissions.

Specific exhibits will include the following:
Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric offers a well-balanced combination of softness, durability and elasticity, as well as ultraviolet protection, anti-transparency and snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface.

This lightweight, thin, three-layer fabric made with water-repellent polyester fibers achieves excellent anti-perspiration comfort through enhanced absorption and quick drying to prevent chills and stickiness.

A high-performance material that is both waterproof and breathable, ECO STORM incorporates recycled polyester that is laminated to a thin but highly durable polyester film, making it an ideal eco-friendly fabric for outdoor clothing.

Odor-Control – Type EP
This innovative polyester material offers stable pH control to suppress harmful bacteria by maintaining a slight acidic surface, similar to that of healthy skin.

Teijin Frontier’s polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable. As a partially bio-derived material, it helps to conserve fossil resources.

All materials mentioned above are environmentally friendly because they can be recycled with Teijin's ECO CIRCLE, the world's first closed-loop recycling system that turns used polyester into new fibers that offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
