Teijin Frontier, Teijin Group's fibres and products converting company, has launched a lightweight, tear-resistant and flat-surfaced fabric that is soft, eco-friendly & abrasion-resistant, making it ideal for sportswear. The company will promote it as a key product for 2021 S/S sports and outdoor collections, targeting sales for a wide range of applications.

Teijin Frontier envisions its new fabric finding diverse applications in high-function wear, such as sports and outdoor wear, fashionwear, school and corporate uniforms and more.

Woven rip-stop fabric in which thick yarns are arranged in a checkered pattern is commonly used as a lightweight, tear-resistant fabrics for sports and outdoor wear. Current fabrics, however, have various problems in terms of hard textures, uneven surfaces in checked patterns, sometimes resulting in snagging, and low resistance to abrasion. The market has been demanding new design methods to produce rip-stop fabrics offering distinctive functions, appearances and textures.

In response, Teijin Frontier has adopted a thin, high-tenacity polyester yarn and applied innovative yarn arrangement and weaving density to produce a lightweight and highly tear-resistant fabric that is ideally suited for sports and outdoor wear with its flat, even surface, soft texture and high resistance to abrasion and snagging.

Teijin is a technology-driven global group offering advanced solutions in the areas of environmental value, safety, security and disaster mitigation; and demographic change and increased health consciousness. Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres such as aramid, carbon fibres and composites, healthcare, films, resin & plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT.
