Why Do I Need Bonded Thread For My Process?

When you’re sewing at high speeds, bonded thread prevents snags and breaks that cause production interruptions and create flaws in your products. In many applications, bonded sewing thread is almost always a superior choice.

Flame Retardant vs. Flame Resistant Threads And Yarns

What Is The Difference Between Flame Retardant And Flame Resistant Threads And Yarns
 
Untreated continuous multifilament polyester yarn, on the left, burns vigorously when the ignition temperature is reached, then melts, emits black smoke, and drips. FR treated continuous multifilament polyester, in the middle, shrinks away from the flame, melts, and drips, but it resists flaming once the source is removed. Therefore the smoke is greatly reduced and the retardant has done its job. Untreated aramid yarn, on the right, burns with difficulty because of its high LOI, so the flame extinguishes when the heat source is removed. Aramid does not melt but decomposes, showing signs of thermal degradation.

How Can Industrial Thread and Yarn Twist Affect Your Process?

To understand twist contraction, think about a ship’s mooring rope. It’s a large, thick rope with thousands of yarns braided and twisted inside. Try to lift a section of the rope, and you’ll find it’s quite heavy.
