Teijin makes knitting material with breathable film
Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., Japan-based Teijin Group’s fibre-product converting company, has announced that the company has developed a polyester high-gauge knitting material laminated with a breathable film to produce thin, lightweight and breathable textiles. Teijin Frontier will sell its new material mainly for spring/summer 2019 sportswear.

Textiles laminated with breathable film are widely used for high-functional sportswear due to their breathability, waterproofness, lightweight and stretchability. Soft, stretchable knitting materials laminated with film will meet an increasing demand for comfortable and functional wear for multi-use, but conventional double layered knitting materials using crimped thread have limitations when relatively light or and thin materials are sought. Teijin Frontier has solved these problems with new dyeing and lamination technologies to produce a high-gauge knitting material using non-crimped thread.

Teijin Frontier’s new material is thin, lightweight and compact as well as stretchable, form-stable and moisture-permeable. Its glossy, translucent appearance, and smooth texture drape beautifully.

Diverse Teijin Frontier technologies incorporated in the new material include filament with polymer technology, ultra-fine denier filament extruding technology, and dyeing and fluffing control technology. It allows high-gauge knitting technology with non-crimped thread and processing technology for laminating knit fabric with stretchable film. (GK)
