Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber converting company, announced today that it will showcase a range of sportswear fabrics at Performance Days, a semi-annual trade show for functional sports- and work-wear fabrics, which will take place at the MTC World of Fashion in Munich, Germany, on May 15 and 16.
Teijin Frontier will exhibit at Performance Days for the first time to promote its expansion into the international sportswear market. The company will present the following products:
This knitted polyester fabric offers a combination of softness, durability, snag resistance, stretchiness, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency. It also has outstanding wind-blocking properties due to its dense, flat-knit surface.
Anti-sweat Comfort — Type CR
This lightweight, thin, three-layer fabric made with water-repelling polyester fibers provides comfort against perspiration by enhancing absorption and wicking to prevent chills and fabric clinging.
This lightweight, high-performance material is both waterproof and breathable. It is made from recycled polyester fiber laminated with a thin but highly durable polyester film. Eco Storm is designed for outdoor clothing, including shell jackets, sportswear and raingear.
Odor-Control — Type EP
This polyester fabric maintains a mildly acidic pH level even when exposed to perspiration, helping to prevent odor and reduce bacteria and stains while staying gentle on the skin. It provides anti-bacterial and odor-preventing properties without using silver coatings or other metallic agents.
All of the sportswear fabrics can be recycled with Teijin’s Eco Circle—the world’s first closed-loop recycling system that turns used polyester into new fibers that offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
