Technical speciality threads

Embroidery threads as technical problem solvers

Garments often have functional requirements they need to fulfil in the desired application, such as being waterproof, fire retardant or conductive. If you have complex textile circuitry, you may also need  insulating embroidery thread. Starting with insulating CV-TEC and fire-retardant Polyneon FR, we are continuing to enlarge our technical thread portfolio.

Fire-retardant embroidery thread

POLYNEON FR is an innovative, flame-retardant thread for embroidering logos or letters onto flame-retardant textiles such as workwear, construction wear, curtains, car seats or wherever effective flame-retardant properties are required. It is compliant to many regulations (DIN EN ISO 11611, DIN EN ISO 14116 DIN 4102 Part 1) and offers Oeko-Tex® Class I and II certification.

  • dtex 135x2 thread on 2500 m cones
  • available in 30 plain and 4 fluorescent colours
  • for 60/8 or 75/11 needles
  • optimised for use on industrial embroidery machines

Insulating viscose embroidery thread

CV-TEC is a technical viscose thread that can be used for fixing processes in fibre placement technologies (TFP), as insulating thread to cover conductive thread or to create insulated bridges in textile circuitry.

  • dtex 200 x 2 thread on 3000 m cones
  • available in off-white; other colours available on request
  • for 75/11 needles
  • non-melting and heat resistant up to over 300°C
  • antistatic and fibre fly avoiding filament construction
  • optimised for use on industrial embroidery machines
