Teijin Develops Natural-like Fabric as a New Product for DELTAPEAK® Family
Tokyo, Japan, November 29, 2018 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber and products converting company, announced today that it has added a natural-like fabric—ideal for sportswear, fashionwear and uniforms—to its DELTAPEAK series of high-function fabrics. Teijin Frontier will commercially launch the product in the 2020 spring/summer season, targeting annual sales of one million meters by the fiscal year ending in March 2022.
The demand for high-function products with a more natural-like look is growing in line with the increasing popularity of athleisure fashion. Teijin Frontier’s high-function DELTAPEAK is a dense and uniform crimped fabric with many excellent properties, but until it has not offered a natural-looking suited for city life.
The new DELTAPEAK fabric offers a unique combination of form-fitting and natural-like texture. Teijin Frontier’s new yarn randomly combines two types of crimped fibers to realize a strechability and elastic-recovering, a soft, high-density structure. The fabric incorporates DELTAPEAK’s micro-crimping technology and SOLOTEX’s conjugate technology for coil-like crimping to achieve comfortable form-fitting, moisture-absorbent, quick-drying, lightweight and bulkiness properties, in addition to a natural-like texture thanks to special dyeing technology.
