Thanks to the material’s micro-garter structure, tiny convex bulges reduce horizontal surface tension to enable raindrops to slip smoothly off the surface in a vertical direction. Minotech also has high moisture permeability due to its non-laminated structure, so it allows sweat vapour to escape, keeping the inner surface dry and pleasant to touch.
The durable and pressure-resistant fabric’s samples will be showcased at the Teijin Frontier’s general exhibition for autumn/winter 2017 ‘Spirit of Frontier’ in Tokyo that will be held on November 17 – 18.
Teijin Group is also expecting its annual sales to rise to two billion yen (about $20 million) by the fiscal ending in March 2019, targeting the Japanese and Chinese market. (KD)
