Thanks to Nanofront’s excellent frictional properties, the insole offers outstanding slip resistance, which helps prevent a wearer’s foot from sliding inside a shoe. Nanofront also boasts high moisture absorbency and diffusion for added comfort, making it an ideal material for insoles.
Nanofront is a high-strength polyester fiber with a thickness of just 700 nanometers, or 7,500 times smaller than the cross section of human hair. Nano-sized bumps on the surface of Nanofront raise frictional force and produce a surface area dozens of times greater than that of regular fiber, resulting in highly superior slip resistance.
Nanofront is also used in shoelaces and socks made by New Balance Japan.
Teijin Fibers started commercial production of Nanofront in 2008 and has been developing applications in areas such as innerwear, sportswear and industrial materials.
Teijin (TSE 3401) 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.
