Nomex® Aramid Fibre Sewing Threads 220°C

Nomex® Aramid Fibre Thread, up to 220 °C

The word 'aramid' is a contraction of 'aromatic polyamide'. The chemical name is para phenylene terephthalamide or PPD-T. Created in the 1960’s, aramid fibres consist of yellow filaments of about ten microns in diameter, assembled into threads. 

Nomex® threads are particularly suitable due to their thermal protection, thanks to their self-extinguishing properties and a continuous application temperature of 220 °C. Beyond this, the mechanical and dimensional characteristics decrease (slow carbonisation). A highly technical thread, they are used for particularly targeted purposes.

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 of Nomex® Aramid Thread

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

Storage of Nomex® Aramid Thread

Aramid threads should be stored away from UV rays in dark packaging. Over exposure to UV rays causes yellowing and a decrease in tensile strength.
