TOKYO — May 31, 2018 — Teijin Frontier Co. Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fiber and products converting company, announced today that it has developed a new line in the DELTAPEAK series — a two-in-one sweatsuit fabric that combines water-repelling and sweat-absorbing properties — for autumn/winter 2019.
Although existing sweatsuit fabrics are already used widely for sports outerwear, there is demand for extra-functional materials that are more stretchable, sweat-absorbent, quick-drying and lightweight. The new DELTAPEAK fabric, which is based on 4 dimensional bulky DELTAPEAK launched in 2017, offers a unique combination of water-repellency for outer surfaces and water-absorbency for inner surfaces. This next-generation sweatsuit fabric repels light rain and mud as well as prevents sweat stains — a two-in-one blend of outer-surface water repellency and inner-surface water absorbency — for superior all-around comfort.
Teijin Frontier’s versatile new fabric also tolerates repeated washing thanks to its kneaded water-repellent yarn and advanced micro-crimping.
Special features of new DELTAPEAK two-in-one sweat-suit fabric
- Repels rain and mud;
- Prevents sweat stains;

Annual sales are expected to reach 200,000 meters by the fiscal year ending in March 2021.
