Guide to Yarn Cord and Tape Dimensions (aka Width or Gauge)

Many industries use cord and tape in their products, like motor manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and recreational sports. There are also many military uses of cord and tape which cover mil-specs A-A-52080, 81, 82, 83, and 84.

What Effect Does Bonded Thread Have On Tensions in a Sewing Application?

When industrial sewing operations require high thread or yarn tensions, properly designed sewing threads and yarns are critical to continuous production flow. Bonded sewing thread and yarn tends to perform well for critical and challenging sewing conditions often faced by manufacturing companies. We’d like to provide some insight into how bonded thread affects tension in industrial sewing and manufacturing.

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.

The video above features NeC 8/4 staple spun polyester. The untreated thread on the left burns vigorously once ignition temperature is reached, melts, emits black smoke and drips. The treated thread on the right melts and drips, however, resists combustion and flaming, therefore, smoke is greatly reduced, retardant has done its job.
