Teijin to Showcase elk® at Interfiliere

Tokyo, Japan, July 2, 2015 --- Teijin Limited announced today that it will participate in Interfiliere, a leading international innerwear-materials trade fair to be held at Paris expo Porte de Versailles in Paris from July 4 to 6. Teijin’s booth (F109-G105) will showcase elk, a lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material that serves as an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications.

Wide-ranging applications for elk include lingerie, sports brassieres cups and laminated sheets, as well as mattresses, pillows, furniture and much more. Teijin’s elk is environmentally friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated.

By participating in Interfiliere, Teijin expects to gain increased recognition for elk and the company’s other high-performance polyester materials as it steadily develops its solutions-oriented global market.

The twice-annual Interfiliere fair presents high-quality lingerie and beachwear items and materials every January and July in Paris. Last year, the event in July attracted about 10,000 visitors from Europe, China, Russia and South America.
