Teijin Frontier, the Teijin Group's fibre and products converting company, has added a natural-like fabric for sportswear, fashionwear and uniforms to its Deltapeak series of high-function fabrics. The company will commercially launch the product in the Spring/Summer 2020 season, targeting annual sales of one million metres by the fiscal year ending in March 2022.

“The demand for high-function products with a more natural-like look is growing in line with the increasing popularity of athleisure fashion,” the company says. “Teijin Frontier’s high-function Deltapeak is a dense and uniform crimped fabric with many excellent properties, but until it has not offered a natural-looking suited for city life.”

The new Deltapeak fabric is designed to offer a unique combination of form-fitting and natural-like texture. Teijin Frontier’s new yarn randomly combines two types of crimped fibres to realise a soft, high-density structure. The fabric incorporates Deltapeak’s micro-crimping technology and Solotex’s conjugate technology for coil-like crimping to achieve comfortable form-fitting, moisture-absorbent, quick-drying, lightweight and bulkiness properties, in addition to a natural-like texture thanks to special dyeing technology.

Teijin is a technology-driven group offering advanced solutions in the areas of environmental value; safety, security and disaster mitigation; and demographic change and increased health consciousness.

Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres, such as aramid, carbon fibres and composites, healthcare, films, resin and plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT. The group has some 170 companies and around 19,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide.
