Teijin Launches Three-layer Anti-perspiration Polyester Fabric

Tokyo-based Teijin Fibers Ltd. has developed a polyester fabric that comprises a three-layer structure, with each layer providing specific functions and all three working together to provide a capillary-like pump action, to offer comfortable anti-perspiration performance in all-season sportswear, casualwear and uniforms.

The fabric's inner layer is hydrophobic to repel moisture and keep perspiration away from the wearer's skin after it has been absorbed by the middle layer, while the outer layer diffuses the moisture to provide a quick drying function. The repellency agent in the inner layer is integrated into the yarn rather than being applied to the surface, thereby withstanding repeated laundering.

The new fabric is being targeted for the fall/winter 2013-14 and spring/summer 2014 seasons.
