Teijin Fibers' exhibit will showcase the company's increasingly popular initiatives for the global innerwear market, including elk, a urethane-alternative, environmentally friendly, high-performance polyester cushioning material, and NANOFRONT, a high-strength polyester nanofiber that boasts excellent frictional properties, soft texture, and high moisture absorbency and diffusion for added comfort.
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 international innerwear brands already use elk.
NANOFRONT is a high-strength polyester fiber with a thickness of just 700 nanometers, or 7,500 times smaller than the cross section of a human hair strand. Nano-sized bumps on the surface of NANOFRONT raise frictional force and produce a surface area dozens of times greater than that of regular fiber, resulting in highly superior slip resistance.
Visitors to the Teijin booth (stand P18) will be able to discuss customized solutions by meeting with representatives from Teijin Fibers and its partner, Yao I Fabric Co., Ltd., a Taiwanese molder.
Interfiliere Paris is the world's leading trade fair for lingerie and beachwear fabrics. Teijin Fibers will appear in the show for the sixth time to further develop its international market for innerwear.
Teijin is a technology-driven global group offering advanced solutions in the areas of sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare.
