Teijin's High-performance Polyester used for High-quality Bedding by ANA
 

Tokyo, Aug 2, 2013 (JCN) - The Teijin Group announced that its high-performance polyester materials, including NANOFRONT high-strength ultra-fine nanofiber, have been selected for use in high-quality comforters and pillows that All Nippon Airways will offer to first- and business-class customers on selected flights beginning September 1.

ANA's first- and business-class passengers flying between Japan and either Europe or the U.S., excluding Honolulu and code-sharing flights by other airlines, will enjoy the restful comfort of these high-quality bedding items.

In first class, ANA will offer an ultra-lightweight comforter made with Teijin's NANOFRONT high-strength polyester nanofiber measuring just 700 nanometers in thickness. The next-generation comforter features special polyester batting that demonstrates excellent heat-insulating and heat-retaining properties.

In business class, passengers will slumber under a warm, thin, anti-static quilting comforter. Teijin's modified cross-section fiber made with high-quality recycled polyester is used for the batting.

The pillow, which offers superb softness, shaping and cushioning, is constructed with Teijin's hollow polyester fiber made with recycled polyester fiber and incorporates advanced technologies from Nishikawa Sangyo Co., Ltd., Japanís leading bedding manufacturer.

The high-quality bedding was co-developed by Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, Texet Ltd., a group company engaged in the design and sales of interior and bedding products, and Nishikawa Sangyo.
