For 25 years since its inception, ECOPET® has been used in a variety of different fields ranging from clothing to industrial materials, as well for housing and automobile interior materials.
scene03 Stations and Trains
Because of its versatility in fiber form and high potential as a functional material, ECOPET® has a wide variety of applications.
Application example: Train seats and uniforms for station attendants
While catering to different needs, including clothing, and addressing diverse issues, we also actively explore new horizons.
Application example: Automobiles (interior materials)
The use of ECOPET® in household commodities has been increasing because of growing environmental awareness.
Application example: Garbage drain bags for kitchen sinks, futons, pillows, and hand wipes
We created high sweat-absorbing, quick-drying textiles by making the surface area of the fibers larger. They also offer high durability and abrasion resistance, making them the textiles best suited for sportswear.
Application example: Sportswear and shopping bags
Quick-drying, durable gym clothes and synthetic leather randsels (Japanese schoolbags) are made from ECOPET®.
Application example: Gym clothes, randsels, curtains, and shoes
ECOPET® is a material best suited for uniforms since sweat-absorption, quick-drying, lightweight, heat-shielding, thermal insulation, and dry touch functionalities can be added to it.
Application example: Workwear
Our product portfolio also includes smooth, wrinkle-resistant textiles. We have also created functional materials using antistatic yarn that does not attract lint or dust.
Application example: Medical clothing
The building material is more than adequate since it is light and can be made into sound-absorbing fibers. There are also fire-resistant products designed to minimize damage from disasters.
Application example: Suits, ceiling material, name cards, and disaster blankets
ECOPET® is often used in outdoor products that require weather and water resistance as well as colorfast fabrics.
Application example: Banners, tablecloths, and disaster blankets
