Reflective Thread from Coats

Apparel manufacturing tip to offer more safety to clothing:

Coats Group plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, is launching Coats Signal thread, an innovative reflective thread.  The specially developed premium thread has a high level of retro-reflectance when illuminated in dark or low visibility conditions.  The new thread will be showcased on the Coats stand (hall 5.1, stand B30), at Texprocess, the international fair for the processing of textile and other apparel materials, held in Frankfurt, Germany, 4-7 May.

Coats Signal thread is silver and designed primarily for fashion applications.  It can be used as an embroidery thread to differentiate products by creating decorative reflective features in logos, stitching patterns and seams.  While it is mainly decorative, when sewn on outdoor and active wear it also helps enhance visibility at night time or in difficult weather conditions.  Coats Signal thread combines the tenacity of a polyester filament cover with a retro-reflective core and has excellent strength and durability. 

Rajiv Sharma, Global CEO, Industrial, Coats Group plc, said: ‘At Coats, we understand the production challenges apparel manufacturers can face when using innovative new types of thread.  Using that knowledge we have created a unique thread which can withstand the rigours of the sewing process and still retain its reflective functionality in the end product.

Coats Signal thread has a special lubricated finish to protect it from needle heat and ensure smooth sewing so it retains its reflectivity after the intense sewing process during apparel production.  When used in the top cover of flatseams, the combination of an intricate stitch formation and reflective property of the thread gives an eye-catching appearance to the seam which also adds a premium look to the product.
Texprocess

Coats is Diamond Sponsor of the Innovative Apparel Show, a new event at Texprocess.  Four German colleges of fashion and design will present their visionary designs for technical textiles created with modern processing technologies.  The event runs for 30 minutes and will take place a total of seven times, twice on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and once on Thursday.
