High temperature Sewing Threads

Our range of high temperature sewing threads.

Overview: High Temperature Sewing Threads

Final Advanced Materials offers high temperature resistant sewing threads up to 1,700 °C. These products are mainly used for the manufacture of thermal protections and protective clothing. They are coated with PTFE to facilitate sewing. This coating disappears during application from 150 °C without altering the qualities of the thread.

Applications of Sewing Threads

  • Protective clothing
  • Airbags
  • Ballistics (bullet-proof vests)
  • Composite materials
  • Air dust extraction filters (hot gas filtration)
  • Tires (reinforcement)
  • Gaskets
  • Webbing

Our Range of Sewing Threads

Aramid Sewing Threads, up to 425 °C

Final Advanced Materials presents two different types of products in polyamides:

  • Para-aramids: used in many fields with high-tech applications, they are mainly known under the brand name Kevlar®, from DuPont, and are used for their superior mechanical properties.

  • Meta-aramids: these are mainly recognised for their thermal and chemical characteristics and are known under the the brand name Nomex®, from DuPont. They are mainly used in the fields of technical textiles and protective clothing.

Kevlar® Threads

Kevlar® or para-aramid threads are heat resistant, self-extinguishing and do not melt. They can withstand continuous temperatures of around 170 °C. Beyond this, the mechanical and dimensional characteristics decrease (slow carbonisation of the polymer) up to their decomposition temperature of 425 °C.

Applications

  • Ballistics (bullet-proof vests)
  • Safety shoes
  • Protective clothing: against Heat, Flame and Cuts (gloves, loggers' trousers)
  • Composite materials
  • Airbags
  • Air dust extraction filters (hot gas filtration)
  • Tires (reinforcement)

Nomex® Threads

Nomex® meta-aramid threads from DuPont are heat resistant, self-extinguishing and do not melt. They can withstand continuous temperatures of around 220 °C. Beyond this, the mechanical and dimensional characteristics decrease (slow carbonisation of the polymer) up to their decomposition temperature of 370 °C. The threads with the most beneficial properties are those containing continuous filaments. Their resistance to rupture and abrasion is far superior to other types of thread.

Applications

  • Heat and flame-resistant clothing, textiles and stitching
  • Safety shoes
  • Protective gloves
  • Aircraft seats
  • Airbags

Glass Fibre Sewing Threads, up to 700 °C

E-glass fibre is a high-quality material that offers heat resistance up to 500 °C (continuous temperature). We offer sewing threads in glass fibres for the manufacture of thermal protection or thermal, dielectric or chemical insulation solutions.

Applications

  • Clothing
  • Weaving
  • Braiding

Ceramic Fibres Sewing Threads, up to 1 700 °C

Alumina fibres threads are primarily designed for thermal, electrical and mechanical applications subjected to extreme conditions. Composed mainly of Al2O3 at different percentages. They are resistant to continuous temperatures up to 1,370 °C. Their excellent resistance to abrasion and mechanical stress makes them particularly suitable for sewing.

Applications

  • Making fire protections
  • Manufacture of dielectric and chemical insulators
