ELK eco-polyester cushioning material to be exhibited at Interfiliere

Teijin Fibers Limited, the core company of the Teijin Group's polyester fibers business, announced that it will present its urethane-alternative environmentally friendly high-performance polyester cushioning material for bra cups, called ELK,during Interfiliere Paris 2011 from July 9 to 11.

ELK is lightweight, durable, cushiony, breathable and does not yellow easily, making it an ideal cushioning material for bra cups. It also is environmentally friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated. A growing number of innerwear international brands already use ELK.

Visitors to the Teijin booth (stand B22) will be able to discuss customized solutions by meeting with representatives from Teijin Fibers and its partners, including Aconic High-tech Fiber (shenzen) Co., Ltd., a Chinese non-woven fabric maker; Yao I Fabric Co., Ltd., a Taiwanese molder; and Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a major Japanese trading company.

Interfiliere Paris, which is held at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris, is the world's leading trade fair for lingerie and beachwear fabrics. Teijin Fibers will appear in the show for the fifth time to further develop its international market for innerwear.

Based in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, Teijin is a global technology-driven group operating in eight main fields: aramid fibers, carbon fibers & composites, polyester fibers, plastics, films, medical & pharmaceuticals, fiber products marketing and IT businesses. Teijin Limited, the holding company for the Teijin Group, is listed on the Tokyo and Osaka stock exchanges.

The group, comprising 150 companies and 17,542 employees worldwide, had consolidated sales of JPY 815.7 billion (USD 10.1 billion) and total assets of JPY 761.5 billion (USD 9.5 billion) in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011.
