Fibre, textile and apparel business Teijin Frontier Co Ltd has developed a new advanced high-performance fabric for use in outerwear.

Delta 2000 comprises a warp of densely and finely crimped bulky yarn and a weft of ultra-thin yarn. According to Teijin, the three-dimensional combination minimises air space to achieve 2,000mm of water resistance, while an aerated fine-waffle structure provides excellent water-shedding performance. 

As an uncoated fabric, the company says Delta 2000 offers "excellent moisture permeability, a comfortably soft texture and a luxurious surface appearance".

The fabric is the latest addition to Teijin Frontier's Delta range of high-performance materials aimed at sporting applications. The company also plans to develop sport, fashion and uniform applications for its Delta 2000 fabric.
