Teijin to promote its sports market expansion at ISPO Munich

Teijin Frontier, the Teijin Group's fibre-product converting company, 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 from 5-8 February.

The booth will showcase high-function materials that are designed to offer excellent combinations of comfort and performance for sportswear. The stand will also showcase recycled and bio-derived materials developed under Teijin Frontier’s THINK ECO initiative for environmentally friendly solutions.

Teijin Frontier’s exhibit will include DELTAPEAK, a soft, high-function bulky fabric produced by fusing twisting and textile technologies. DELTAPEAK is durable, stretchable, ultraviolet-protective and dimensionally stable due to its flat-knit surface, making it an excellent choice for sportswear, the company explains.

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 company reports. The exhibit will feature OCTA NEO, which is said to offer a pleasingly smooth texture, as well as OCTA functionality.

High-tenacity PASMO polyester has been developed to achieve superior comfort and body support with a tensile strength that is 1.5 times greater than that of conventional materials.

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

The company’s elk cushiony, durable and breathable material is an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications, including bra cups and supporters for sports. Finally, CORDLEY, Teijin Frontier’s high-grade artificial leather, looks and feels very much like natural leather. CORDLEY also is lightweight, durable and easy to handle, making it great for sports applications such as balls and shoes.
