TOKYO, Japan -- Teijin Limited exhibited a variety of advanced materials and solutions at Asia Nonwovens Exhibition (ANEX) 2015, one of the global nonwoven industry’s top shows. ANEX, which is held every three years, took place at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in China from May 13 to 15.

The Teijin booth (Stand U-10) presented the following proprietary Teijin polyester materials and related high-performance solutions:

  • Nanofront®: The world’s first 700-nanometer ultra-fine Teijin polyester fiber features superior fitting, slip resistance, heat and light shielding, and filtering properties. It is used for diverse applications, including clothing and industrial applications such as filters and heat-shielding sheets.
  • Ultra-fine short-cut fiber: This ultra-fine short-cut Teijin fiber is engineered specially for wet-laid nonwoven fabrics. It offers high-level processing, excellent water dispersion and customization. Applications include papermaking and many other products.
  • elk®: A lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material that serves as an excellent substitute for polyurethane in a range of cushioning applications.
  • Moisture-absorbing fiber: The Teijin display presented a desiccating, humidity-conditioning thin sheet made of high-performance moisture-absorbing Teijin fiber that effectively inhibits condensation. Highly durable, it can be used repeatedly for moisture absorption and release.
  • Filament nonwoven fabric: The world’s only nonwoven fabric that conforms effectively to molded shapes also offers high-level heat-sealability and printability.

High-performance, value-added composite materials are one of the four key businesses pillars targeted under the Transformation and Growth Strategies in Teijin’s current medium-term business plan. Fields that offer promising opportunities for Teijin’s high-performance fibers include safety, infrastructure and energy, functional paper and filters, and mobility. Teijin is putting a high priority on leveraging its high-performance materials in advanced solutions that meet diverse demands in the global market.
