Tokyo, Japan, January 20, 2016 --- The Teijin Group announced today that it will promote its ongoing expansion in the global sports market by participating in ISPO Munich, the world biggest sportswear exhibition, at Messe München GmbH, from January 24 to 27.

Teijin’s booth (Hall: B5, Booth: No.534) will showcase technical materials and products offering exceptional comfort and solutions that help reduce fossil-resource consumption and thereby CO2 emissions.

The exhibit will include:

This lightweight, high-performance material, both waterproof and breathable, features recycled polyester laminated with a thin but highly durable polyester film. ECO STORM is ideal for eco-friendly outdoor clothing.

Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric realizes a highly integrated combination of physicality, functionality and quality. It offers softness, durability, stretching, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface.

Octa Neo is a multilayer fiber, which combines the company’s proprietary Octa hollow, eight-fin polyester fiber with various chemical and natural staple fibers for diverse applications.

PASMO is a high-tenacity polyester that boasts 1.5 times greater tensile strength than conventional polyester to provide athletes with greater comfort and body support for peak performance.

Bio-derived materials
SOLOTEX, a polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber, is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable, and is also partially bio-derived.

Teijin’s elk is a lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material that serves as an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, such as bra cups, supporters and pads. It is also environmentally friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated.
