"Self-Regulating Fiber" - TEIJIN, Change in fabric shape

Osaka based TEIJIN FIBERS LIMITED (TFJ), a wholly owned subsidiary of TEIJIN LIMITED (TEIJIN), has developed a groundbreaking self-regulating fiber, and provisionally named the "M.R.T. Fiber” (Moisture Responded Transformable Fiber), for use in the innovative "NIKE SPHERE REACT" sportswear range developed by NIKE INC (NIKE).

Groundbreaking new material to be used in the innovative sportswear of Nike Inc.

TFJ has entered into a licensing agreement for this fiber material with Nike, and will exclusively supply the fiber worldwide for the "NIKE SPHERE REACT" range.

Typically, sportswear product development involves apparel manufacturers using and commercializing fiber materials developed by fiber manufacturers.

On this occasion, however, the material manufacturer TFJ and apparel manufacturer NIKE have been engaged in full-scale joint development right through from the conceptual stages.

This process has given rise to a number of new technologies, which have resulted in the successful development of an innovative new product that offers new value in the form of unprecedented functionality that is actually "visible" to wearers.

"Nike Sphere React" is an innovative new sportswear range that NIKE has plans to market worldwide, and that NIKE JAPAN Corp. will sell in Japan as golf, tennis, soccer, running, and outdoor leisure sportswear.

TFJ's self-regulating "M.R.T. Fiber" is the "NIKE SPHERE REACT DRY" and "NIKE SPHERE REACT COOL" ranges.
