Tokyo-based Teijin Group’s fiber-products converting company, Teijin Frontier Co. Ltd., has developed DELTA 2000, a high-density, high-comfort performance fabric designed for use in outerwear.
DELTA 2000’s structure comprises a warp of densely and finely crimped bulky yarn and a weft of ultra-thin yarn. Air spaces in the fabric are minimized three-dimensionally to achieve 2,000 millimeters of water resistance; and an aerated fine-waffle structure offers good water-shedding performance. Uncoated DELTA 2000 fabrics also offer good moisture permeability, a soft texture and luxurious surface appearance, Teijin reports.
The company plans to develop sport, fashion and uniform applications for DELTA 200 in the future.
