Teijin Frontier has developed a polyester, high-gauge knitting material laminated with a breathable film to produce thin, lightweight and breathable textiles. Textiles laminated with breathable film are widely used for functional sportswear, due to their waterproofness and stretchability. The new material is compact, form-stable and moisture-permeable. It has a glossy, translucent appearance and a smooth texture for excellent drapability. The company will sell its new material mainly for spring/summer 2019 sportswear.
