Teijin Frontier to Participate in Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2015

Tokyo, Japan, July 31, 2015 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, announced today that it will participate in Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2015, a leading international sports trade fair to be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, U.S.A. from August 5 to 8.

Teijin Frontier’s booth (stand: MR150C) will feature a number of leading-edge hybrid products, including DELTAPEAK, an advanced fabric that enhances the comfortable texture and fashionable appearance of high-performance sportswear.

The exhibit will also feature Teijin Frontier’s pursuit of a more comfortable and prosperous future through environmentally friendly solutions that conserve fossil resources and reduce CO2 emissions.

The exhibit will include:
DELTAPEAK, a next-generation polyester fabric that integrates physicality, functionality and quality to a high degree. In addition to softness, durability and elasticity, it offers ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface. The booth will present a wide variety of DELTAPEAK fabrics featuring nylons, multi-colors, natural-fiber blends and more.
DELTAPEAK TL, an all-new, highly comfortable and functional material that achieves the pile structure of toweling. Made of 100% polyester, it offers excellent water absorbency, a soft texture and a unique bulky-but-lightweight feeling.
• High-tenacity polyester fabric, which boasts 1.5 times more tensile strength than conventional polyester to provide athletes with greater comfort and body support for superior performance.
SOLOTEX polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber, which is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable. Partially bio-derived, it also helps to conserve fossil resources.
