Teijin Frontier has developed new nylon based materials and related textiles by adapting the company's established polyester production technologies.

“The newly developed products offer the high functionality of polyester products such as lightweight, moisture management, anti-transparency, and softness, while retaining the characteristics of nylon fibre,” the company said.

Deltapeak is a new knitted nylon and its related textile fabrics are ideal for outdoor, sports and casual wear, with advantages which include lightweight, softness, anti-transparency, stretchability, snag resistance and useful bulkiness.

Waveron is Teijin Frontier's new nylon fibre and features a unique cross-sectional shape consisting of four flat peaks, which enhance anti-transparency, moisture management and quick-drying.

In addition, the nylon's original characteristics offer softness, hygroscopic effectiveness, wear resistance and a cool feel to the touch.

Waveron nylon fibre is suitable for use in yogawear and compression garments when mixed with urethane fibre, as well as innerwear and surface fabrics for wadding.

The Japanese company plans to release Deltapeak and Waveron in sportswear and outdoor applications for its 2017 spring / summer collections, with more applications in dress, casual wear and industrial materials. (AR)
