Teijin unveils Solotex Thermo thermal retention fibre

Nov '17
Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fibre-product converting company, has unveiled the Solotex Thermo, a polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) fibre, offering excellent thermal retention and insulation. The new fibre can be used in a wide range of applications, including jeans, pants and bottoms, and for more than just outer materials.

Solotex Thermo offers high comfortability, thanks to its softness, form-suitability and strechability. It absorbs near infrared sunlight and converts it to heat efficiently due to carbon-based inorganic particles mixed into the fibre’s monocular structure. Compared to conventional polyester fibre, it raises the wearer’s wind-chill factor by 5°C, as demonstrated in a sunlight heat-storage test conducted by Boken Quality Evaluation Institute.

Teijin Frontier is now exploring marketing opportunities for Solotex Thermo mainly for outerwear. Annual sales are expected to reach 500 tons by the fiscal year ending in March 2021. (GK)
