Teijin Develops Extra-functional Nylon Fabrics for Expanding Athleisure Business

Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber products converting company, announced today that it has developed a new nylon-based materials and related textiles by adapting the company’s well-established polyester production technologies for nylon materials.

The newly developed products offer the high functionality of polyester products such as lightweight, moisture management, anti-transparency, and softness — while retaining the characteristics of nylon fiber produced by Taiwanese nylon manufacturer Chain Yarn Corporation.

DELTAPEAK®

This new knitted nylon and its related textile fabrics are ideal for outdoor, sports and casual wear. DELTAPEAK®’s advantages include lightweight, softness, anti-transparency, stretchability, snag resistance and useful bulkiness thanks to its dense, flat-knit surface. It also offers high durability and coloring properties.

WAVERON™

Teijin Frontier’s new nylon fiber features a unique cross-sectional shape consisting of four flat peaks, which enhance anti-transparency, moisture management and quick-drying. In addition, the nylon’s original characteristics offer softness, hygroscopic effectiveness, wear resistance and a cool feel to the touch. WAVERON™ nylon fiber is suitable for use in yoga wear and compression garments when mixed with urethane fiber, as well as inner wear and surface fabrics for wadding.

Teijin Frontier plans to release DELTAPEAK® and WAVERON™ in sportswear and outdoor applications for its 2017 spring / summer collections. Additional applications will be offered for dress, casual wear and industrial materials. Annual sales are expected to rise to 10 million meters by the fiscal year ending in March 2019.

Athleisure-type fashionable sportswear, including for outdoor and yoga wear, satisfies demands for soft, attractive outfits that are lightweight, moisture management, quick-drying and opaque. Going forward, Teijin Frontier will continue to develop advanced athleisure materials, leveraging its long experience with highly functional polyester products, to meet increasingly diverse consumer demands.
