Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fibres and products converting company, announced today that it will promote its ongoing expansion in the global sports market by participating in ISPO Munich, the world’s biggest sportswear exhibition, which will take place at Messe München from January 28 to 31.

The company’s booth (Hall: C4, Booth: No.103) will showcase highly-functional materials that the company says offer excellent combinations of comfort and performance for sportswear. The stand also will showcase recycled and bio-derived materials developed under Teijin Frontier’s Think Eco initiative for environmentally friendly solutions.

Teijin Frontier’s exhibit will include:


A next-generation fabric that achieves a high-level integration of physical properties, functionality and quality. Along with softness, durability and elasticity, it also offers ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface. A newly developed Deltapeak sweat–suit fabric, bulky, lightweight and extra-soft owing to its 4-dimensional structure, will also be exhibited.


Octa has a unique, highly modified cross-section comprising eight projections aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fibre. Its notable advantages include half the weight of polyester of the same diameter, rapid wicking and drying, thermal insulation and useful bulkiness, making this another great material for sportswear. The exhibit will feature Octa  Neo, which is said to offer a pleasingly smooth texture as well as Octa functionality.


Teijin Frontier’s high-strength polyester nanofiber has a diameter of just 700 nanometers, yet its surface area is several ten times larger than that of conventional fibre, resulting in positive-grip, low-slippage surfaces. It also is cool, wiping and non-transparent, making it a highly useful material for various fields, including sportswear and innerwear.


This cushiony, durable and breathable material is an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, including bra cups and supporters for sports.


High-grade artificial leather Cordley is lightweight, durable and easy to handle, making it great for environmentally friendly sports applications such as balls and shoes.
