Teijin Fibers' New Polyester Offers Total Anti-Sweat Comfort
Tokyo, Japan - Teijin Fibers Limited announced recently a new polyester fabric that offers total comfort during perspiration through enhanced absorption, quick drying and prevention of both chill and stickiness. Teijin Fibers will launch the new fabric for all-season sportswear targeting the fall/winter 2013 and spring/summer 2014 seasons, as well as for casual wear and uniforms.
The new polyester fabric has a three-layer structure consisting of an inner, fully hydrophobic layer of moisture-repellant polyester fibers, a middle moisture-absorption layer and an outer moisture-diffusion layer. Once sweat has been absorbed by the middle layer, the inner hydrophobic layer keeps moisture from returning to the skin to prevent the wearer from becoming chilled, and to prevent the fabric from sticking to the skin even when perspiring heavily. The capillary-type pump action of the three-layer structure quickly absorbs and diffuses sweat to promote fast drying.
The water-repellant fibers incorporate a repellant agent in the raw yarn, unlike surface-treated fibers, so high performance is maintained even after repeated washing.
Teijin Fibers believes that its new polyester with all-round performance for total comfort when perspiring greatly expands upon the moisture-absorption and quick-drying functions of fabrics now on the market.
