Teijin to Participate in OutDoor Friedrichshafen 2016

Tokyo, Japan, July 11, 2016 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber-products converting company, and group companies Teijin Frontier Europe GMBH, Nangtong Teijin Co., LTD. and Teijin Frontier (HONG KONG) Limited announced today their participation in OutDoor Friedrichshafen 2016, an international trade fair for outdoor products that will be held at Messe Friedrichshafen in Germany from July 13 to 16.

The Teijin Frontier Group, which will attend the show for the first time in four years, will organize a booth (318, Hall A4) to appeal the group’s environmental strategies for conserving fossil resources and lowering CO2 emissions by showcasing its highly functional materials and environmental action policy THINK ECO.
The Group looks forward to expanding its global market in outdoor-related fields by exhibiting leading products such as the following:

Waterproof and breathable ECO STORM is made with ECO CIRCLE FIBERS , polyester produced with Teijin’s special closed-loop recycling process, laminated with a thin polyester film, making ECO STORM an ideal eco-friendly fabric for outdoor clothing.

Soft, durable and stretchable, DELTAPEAK also offers ultraviolet protection, anti-transparency and wind-breaking performance thanks to its dense, flat-knit surface. Nylon-based DELTAPEAK is highly wear- and snag-resistant as well.

Octa polyester fiber features a unique, highly modified cross-section with eight projections aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Advantages include rapid sweat absorption, fast drying and useful bulkiness. Octa Neo is a sheath-core fiber combining Octa long-filament fibers and other chemical or natural-staple fibers.

High-tenacity PASMO polyester material achieves superior comfort and body support based on a tensile strength that is 1.5 times greater than that of conventional materials.

Bio-derived materials
The booth at Outdoor Friedrichshafen 2016 also will exhibit partially bio-derived polytrimethylene terephthalate fibers including SOLOTEX, which is exceptionally soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable.
