Teijin Frontier, Teijin Group’s fibre and products converting firm, has added a natural-like fabric, ideal for sportswear, fashionwear, and uniforms, to its Deltapeak series of high-function fabrics. Teijin Frontier will launch the product in the 2020 spring/summer 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. 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 company said in a press release.
The new Deltapeak fabric offers 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.
Special features of new Deltapeak natural-like fabric include natural-like appearance and texture, soft and stretchy (Deltapeak) and elastic-recovering (Solotex), twice the moisture-absorbent and quick-drying properties of regular polyester thanks to capillary action, and lightweight and bulky. Core features of Deltapeak include anti-snagging, shape recovery, UV block, stretchability, and anti-transparency.
