Teijin Frontier to Participate in Première Vision Paris

Tokyo, Japan, February 9, 2016 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, announced today that it will participate in Première Vision Paris, a major event for global fashion industry professionals, which will be held in Paris from February 16 to 18.

Teijin Frontier’s booth, named TEIJINTEX by TEIJIN FRONTIER (stand: 6F23), will double the lineup of Teijin products, including fabric incorporating two outstanding proprietary materials—SOLOTEX and DELTAPEAK. The exhibits will also showcase selected materials for Spring/Summer 2017 fashions that were developed with special spinning and post-processing techniques.

By displaying a wide variety of fashion applications for these highly functional materials, Teijin Frontier expects to broaden awareness of their comfort and fashionableness, and thereby contribute to expanded business in the European market.

Exhibits will include the following:
- SOLOTEX polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is exceptionally soft, highly stretchable, shape retaining, durable and achieves deep, vivid colors. The booth will present a wide range of hybrid products that blend SOLOTEX with other natural and synthetic fibers for new textures and functions, demonstrating it appeal as an all-purpose fashion material. In addition, 37% of its components are bio-derived, so SOLOTEX is an environmentally friendly choice as well.

DELTAPEAK is an advanced polyester fabric that closely integrates physicality, functionality and quality. 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, making it an ideal material for global sports apparel. The booth will present a variety of DELTAPEAK fabrics for fashion, including knit fabrics with a textile-like appearance.
