Teijin Group's fibre product converting company, Teijin Frontier has developed a new, highly comfortable and functional polyester material that achieves the pile structure of toweling.

“The material made from 100 per cent polyester fibre, offers excellent water absorbency, a soft texture and a unique bulky but lightweight feeling,” a Teijin press release said.

Teijin Frontier is developing a variety of applications for the new material, focusing on 2016 fall/winter sportswear but also functional clothing such as underwear and uniforms, as well as bedding.

Due to its pile structure without buffing, the new material’s surface appearance, functionality and comfort remain durable after repeated washing.

“In addition, the fabric structure is applicable for multi-seasonal products, not just fall and winter clothing,” Teijin explained.

“Fleece, a major synthetic fibre product with a bulky fibre structure, has been used widely for many years because its napping provides excellent heat retention and warmth,” it added.

“The fabric has disadvantages, however, including deteriorating surface appearance and water absorption after repeated washing, and usage limited to fall and winter clothing,” Teijin noted.

Teijin Frontier’s response was to develop a new type of polyester fabric with a pile structure similar to that of toweling.

The company combined technologies from its Deltapeak, a highly balanced material that incorporates unique yarn texturising, knitting and dyeing techniques and technologies based on a new false-twist yarn.

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.

Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres such as aramid, carbon fibres & composites, healthcare, films, resin & plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT.

The group has some 150 companies and around 16,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide. It posted consolidated sales of ¥786.2 billion or $6.6 billion in fiscal ending March 31, 2015. (AR)
