The Teijin booths (MR150C at Outdoor Retailer and Booth 138, Hall C2 at ISPO) will showcase products that meet the increasing demands for clothing capable of functioning as both high-performance sportswear and comfortable daily-use, multipurpose wear.
Anti-sweat Comfort – Type CR
This polyester fabric, designed for all-season sports and casual wear, achieves total anti-perspiration comfort through enhanced absorption, quick drying and prevention of chills and stickiness. Its three-layer structure consists of an inner, fully hydrophobic layer of moisture-repellant polyester fibers, a middle moisture-absorption layer and an outer moisture-diffusion layer.
This lightweight, high-performance material, both waterproof and breathable, features recycled polyester laminated with a thin but highly durable polyester film. ECO STORM is ideal for outdoor clothing, including shell jackets, sportswear and raingear.
This knitted polyester fabric offers a combination of softness, durability and snag resistance, plus a number of other useful functions such as stretching, ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency. It also has outstanding wind-blocking properties due to its dense, flat-knit surface.
Odor-Control – Type EP
Healthy, mildly acidic skin can become alkaline due to sweating or drying. If either condition is prolonged, odors or stains can be produced by bacteria. Teijin's modified polyester polymer achieves an intrinsically hydrophobic (neutral) state for localized hydrophilic properties and mild acidity on the fiber's surface. As a result, the fabric maintains its mildly acidic pH level even when the wearer is perspiring.
This highly durable fabric satisfies needs for value-added clothing that is gentle to skin, prevents odors and resists bacteria and stains. It is a promising anti-bacterial, odor-prevention, metal-free material that eliminates the use of silver coats or any metal-based agent.
All materials mentioned above also are environmentally friendly because they can be recycled with Teijin's ECO CIRCLE, the world's first closed-loop recycling system that turns used polyester into new fibers that offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
