Coated Aramid Thread

Our thread is recommended for use where exposure to moisture, abrasion, environmental contaminants or cut-hazard would be likely to cause failure in traditional threads of equal size. It can be considered as a replacement for more costly PTFE thread. This thread doesn't require class 7 machines -- it is a lighter weight substitute for plied or extremely heavy threads (e.g. 5 and 6 cord). This thread runs well through a #22 needle. 

Some of the highlghts of this thread include: 

  • Non-absorbent
  • 100% wet strength after 6 months immersion in sea water
  • High break strength (80 lbs in size 138)
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High UV resistance (approx. 30% strength loss after two years exposure) 
  • High resistance to solvents, bleach and hydrocarbons 
Complete test results are available along with samples of our thread.
