Teijin to Participate in ISPO Munich

Tokyo, Japan, January 30, 2017 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, announced today that it will promote its ongoing expansion in the global sports market by participating in ISPO Munich, the world's biggest sportswear exhibition, which will take place at Messe München GmbH from February 5 to 8.

The booth (Hall: B5, Booth: No.440) will showcase high-function materials that offer excellent combinations of comfort and performance for sportswear. The stand also will showcase recycled and bio-derived materials developed under Teijin Frontier's THINK ECO initiative for environmentally friendly solutions.

Teijin Frontier's exhibit will include:

Teijin Frontier produces this soft, high-function bulky fabric by fusing twisting and textile technologies. DELTAPEAK is durable, stretchable, ultraviolet-protective and dimensionally stable due to its flat-knit surface, making it an excellent choice for sportswear.

Octa has a unique, highly modified cross-section comprising eight projections aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Its notable advantages include half the weight of polyester of the same diameter, rapid wicking and drying, thermal insulation and useful bulkiness, making this another great material for sportswear. The exhibit will feature Octa NEO, which offers a pleasingly smooth texture as well as Octa functionality.

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

Teijin Frontier's high-strength polyester nanofiber has a diameter of just 700 nanometers, yet its surface area is several ten times larger than that of conventional fiber, resulting in positive-grip, low-slippage surfaces. It also is cool, wiping and non-transparent, making it a highly useful material for various fields, including sportswear and innerwear.

This cushiony, durable and breathable material is an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, including bra cups and supporters for sports.

Teijin Frontier's high-grade artificial leather looks and feels very much like natural leather. Cordley also is lightweight, durable and easy to handle, making it great for sports applications such as balls and shoes.
