Teijin has developed SOLOTEX® THERMO, a polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) fiber offering excellent thermal retention and insulation. The company says the fiber offers high comfortability thanks to its softness, form-suitability and stretchability. It absorbs near infrared sunlight and converts it to heat efficiently due to carbon-based inorganic particles mixed into the fiber’s molecular structure. The company plans wide applications for the fiber beginning with outerwear.
