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 Highlights of this Thread Include:
- 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
