BREATHAIR® has many excellent characteristics. It is air and moisture permeable, has excellent cushioning, is durable and safe, has antibacterial properties and it is also kind to the environment… to name but a few. Mattresses and pillows made with BREATHAIR® are not prone to cause sweatiness and this makes it easy for a sleeper to move around and turn over in bed at night.

BREATHAIR® is also widely used in hospitals and care facilities because it is easy to wash and also conforms to SEK standards* to limit the propagation of bacteria. The excellent durability of BREATHAIR® has resulted in its adoption for use in the seats on N700 Series Shinkansen trains as well as on other train lines, and BREATHAIR® is now even used for motorcycle seats.

A number of artists have discovered that the complex structure of BREATHAIR® is not something that can simply be recreated using computer graphics and so BREATHAIR® is increasingly being used in the fields of art and design. BREATHAIR® -- a cushion material with limitless possibilities.

*SEK standards are set by the Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council. SEK standards guarantee the antibacterial performance of finishing agents and products.
