Teijin to promote 'The Fusion of Ecology & Function' at Interfiliere
Sep '10
Teijin Fibers Limited, the core company of the Teijin Group's polyester fibers business, announced that it will participate in Interfiliere Paris 2010, the world's leading international trade fair for lingerie and beachwear fabrics, which will be held at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris, France, from September 4 to 6.

Teijin Fibers will present its environmentally friendly high performance polyester materials under the concept of “The Fusion of Ecology & Function.” The company's fourth appearance in the exhibition will focus mainly on ELKTM (ELASTY), a urethane-alternative, high-performance polyester cushioning material, which a growing number of companies are using to make bra cups. The company also aims to expand business in the international innerwear market in parallel with its appearance in Interfiliere Paris 2010.

The Teijin Fibers booth will feature the following key products:

• ELKTM (ELASTY), high-performance polyester cushioning material that can be used in place of urethane. It is lightweight, durable, highly rebounding, highly breathable and does not get yellow easily, making it an ideal material for cushioning materials in bra cups. It is also environmentally friendly as it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated. It has already been used by international innerwear brands.
• Waveron, non-transparent polyester fiber with a cross section of four flat peaks. It is highly functional, being sweat absorbent, quick drying, ultraviolet-ray blocking, wind and waterproof, as well as having a soft texture and feeling, with shiny elegant drapes.
• ECO CIRCLETM FIBERS, recycled polyester fibers produced from used polyester products through Teijin's innovative chemical recycling technology.
• Nanofront, high-strength polyester fiber with an unprecedented thickness of just 700 nanometers, 7,500 times thinner than a strand of hair and 200,000 times thinner than conventional polyester fiber. The ultra-fine fiber is also soft and stretchable, and boasts excellent absorbency and opaqueness, making it ideal for innerwear.

Based in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, Teijin is a global technology-driven group operating in six main fields: high-performance fibers (aramid fibers and carbon fibers); polyester fibers; films and plastics; pharmaceuticals and home health care; trading and retail; and IT and new products. Teijin Limited, the holding company for the Teijin Group, is listed on the Tokyo and Osaka stock exchanges. The group had consolidated sales of USD 8.5 billion in fiscal 2009 and employs 18,778 people worldwide, with 156 companies around the world.
