Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, has developed an all-new, highly comfortable and functional polyester material made for 100 percent polyester fibre that gives pile structure of toweling feeling. The material has excellent water absorbency, a soft texture and a unique bulky but it is lightweight .
Due to its pile structure without buffing, the new materialâ€™s surface appearance, functionality and comfort remain durable after repeated washing.
In addition, the fabric structure is applicable for multi-seasonal products, not just fall and winter clothing, Teijin explained.
Fleece, a major synthetic fibre product with a bulky fibre structure, has been used widely for many years because its napping provides excellent heat retention and warmth.
The fabric has disadvantages, however, including deteriorating surface appearance and water absorption after repeated washing, and usage limited to fall and winter clothing, Teijin noted.
Teijin Frontierâ€™s response was to develop a new type of polyester fabric with a pile structure similar to that of toweling.
Teijin Frontier is developing a variety of applications for the new material, focusing on 2016 fall/winter sportswear but also functional clothing such as underwear and uniforms, as well as bedding and industrial materials. The fiscal 2019 sales target is 500,000 meters.
The company combined technologies from its Deltapeak, a highly balanced material that incorporates unique yarn texturising, knitting and dyeing techniques and technologies based on a new false-twist yarn.
Teijin is a technology-driven global group offering advanced solutions in the areas of sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare.
