Teijin to Participate in Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2018

Tokyo, Japan, July 12, 2018 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber and products converting company, announced today that it will participate in Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2018, the world’s largest international sports and outdoor trade fair to be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, U.S.A. from July 23 to 26.

The Teijin Frontier stand (#MR208) will preview a 4-dimensional bulky DELTAPEAK and related hybrid materials that offer excellent combinations of performance, appearance and texture for sportswear. The stand also will promote Teijin Frontier’s environmental initiative, THINK ECO, for environmentally friendly solutions including microplastics pollution research, fossil resource conservation and CO2 emissions reduction.

Some of the many exhibits at the Teijin Frontier stand will include the following:

DELTAPEAK is a next-generation fabric that integrates physical properties, functionality and quality on a highly advanced level. Thanks to its dense, flat-knit surface, it is a light and stretchable form-fitting, anti-transparent and snag-resistant fabric. Various DELTAPEAK versions will be displayed, including one boasting a towel-like structure.

4-dimensional bulky DELTAPEAK™ 
This new sweat-suit fabric is the latest addition to the DELTAPEAK series. It offers a soft texture, high-bulkiness and lightweight due to its unique four-layer structure. The booth will showcase a new DELTAPEAK line—a two-in-one sweat-suit fabric that combines water-repelling and sweat-absorbing properties.

This fiber features a unique, highly modified cross section of eight projecting fins aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Notable advantages include rapid wicking and drying as well as useful bulkiness. Another type of Octa is a contort material integrated with insulation and lining.

Polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber SOLOTEX is soft, stretchable, shape-retaining, dimensionally stable and brightly colored thanks to its molecular structure from a flexible spinning-like helix.

Teijin Frontier looks forward to strengthening its recognition and cultivating new customers in the North American outdoor market through its appearance at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2018.
