The fibre products converting company of the Teijin Group has developed Minotech, a highly water-repellent outerwear material for spring/summer 2017. Inspired by straw raincoats that were made in ancient Japan, Minotech combines the usefulness of umbrella-quality fabric, the practicality of high-function wear and the attractiveness of a fashionable material.

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)
