Teijin has developed a new aramid fiber fabric suited for use in high-visibility protective apparel thanks to its extra-vivid coloring and resistance to fading. The new aramid fabric is expected to meet growing demands for safety clothing that offers comfort and maneuverability as well as high visibility.
The new aramid fabric is fully compliant with international standards for high-visibility clothing that enables others to see the wearer in a variety of lighting conditions. Over the decades, Teijin’s durable, heat-resistant, flame-retardant aramid fibers have contributed to the advancement of safety and protective apparel, providing police, firefighters and chemical-plant workers with high-performance clothing favored for their high-visibility, flame-retardant and flame-proof properties.
Teijin is strengthening its leading position in the Japanese market for protective apparel, putting forward new hybrid safety solutions that combine various high-performance materials to meet diverse customer demands.
Teijin is a global group operating in the fields of advanced fibers and composites, electric materials and performance polymer products, nylon, acetate, aramid, and polyvinyl chloride for apparel and industrial materials, healthcare and fiber.
