Tokyo, Japan, January 7, 2016 --- The Teijin Group announced today that it will showcase a variety of products and solutions focused on comfort and ecology at HeimTextil 2016, the world’s largest home-textiles trade fair, in Frankfurt, Germany from January 12 to 15.
The Teijin booth (B-55, Hall 8.0), designed as a living space to exhibit materials in real-life settings, will present materials used in mattresses, comforters, pillows and other bedding items. Teijin materials that will be on display include the following:
elk® polyester cushioning material
-This lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material is an excellent substitute for polyurethane used in mattresses and many other cushioning applications. It is also eco-friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated.
SOLOTEX® polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber
-Teijin will showcase pillows made with SOLOTEX, a polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber that has soft touch. Partially bio-derived, SOLOTEX helps to conserve fossil resources.
-The booth will also present a variety of high-performance polyester fibers for filling applications, including luxuriously soft fiber-filling material.
Teijin will showcase these and other products and solutions to promote the company’s ongoing global-business expansion.
HeimTextil, held every January, attracted about 68,000 visitors from 68 countries last year.
