Triactor is a registered trademark of Toyobo in Japan.

Triactor is a newly-developed Y-shaped modified cross-sectional polyester filament material (yarn and cloth).


  • Its Y-shaped modified cross-sectional construction allows this textile surface to absorb moisture quickly.
  • It absorbs sweat and dries much faster than conventional polyesters, thus keeping the inside of garment dry.
  • Its construction reduces the amount of material touching the skin, so it feels cool and refreshing.

Examples of products developed with Triactor

  • Golf wear
  • Athletic training wear
  • Athletic socks
