Teijin develops fine gauge laminated knitted fabric

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-12-02 14:00:00 – Tokyo

Teijin Group’s fibre-product converting company Teijin Frontier, a technology driven group offering advanced solution in the areas of environmental value; safety, security and disaster mitigation; and demographic change and increased health consciousness has developed a fine gauge knitted fabric laminated with a breathable film which can be widely used for highly functional sportswear. The company will sell its new material mainly for Spring/Summer 2019 sportswear.

Teijin Frontier’s new material, produced using fine-gauge knitting technology with non-crimped yarn, is said to be thin, lightweight and compact, as well as stretchable, form-stable and moisture-permeable. Its glossy, translucent appearance and smooth texture drape beautifully, the company reports.

Soft, stretchable knitting materials laminated with film will meet an increasing demand for comfortable and functional wear for multi-use, but conventional double layered knitting materials using crimped thread have limitations when relatively light or and thin materials are sought. But now Teijin Frontier has solved these problems with new dyeing and lamination technologies to produce a high-gauge knitting material using non-crimped thread.

Teijin Frontier is now exploring sport and fashion marketing opportunities for two versions of its new material: a high-function type using Pasmo high-tenacity polyester and an eco-friendly type adopting recycled polyester.
