What is nylonsewing thread？
Nylon sewing thread is one of many types of thread that are available for use with home sewing machines, as well as in industrial applications.
The CF nylon sewing thread product is a kind of industrial filament sewing thread with elasticity and high elongation. CF nylon thread is made of continuous filament nylon fibers twisted together. Nylon sewing thread is smooth and soft. High wear resistance, good optical rotation resistance, mildew resistance. Coloring degree of about 100 degrees, low-temperature dyeing.
Nylon sewing thread is widely used because of its high seam strength, durability, flat seam, and can meet the needs of a wide range of different sewing industrial products.
Chemical resistance of CF nylon sewing thread
- Bleaching Agents and Solvents: Nylon filament yarn can be bleached in most solutions, but is generally insoluble in most organic solvents. It is soluble in certain phenolic compounds.
- Hydrocarbons: Nylon threads have excellent resistance to hydrocarbons such as gasoline, diesel and kerosene.
- Acids and Bases: Nylon threads are immune to most inorganic acids, with the exception of hot inorganic acids. It dissolves and partially decomposes in concentrated solutions of hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and nitric acid. Soluble in formic acid. Basically inert in alkali.
Features of high strength nylon sewing thread ?
- Elongation – Nylon sewing thread stretches about 26% over time.
- Anti-mildew, anti-aging and sun-resistant – Continuous filament nylon yarn has excellent anti-mildew and anti-aging properties, but prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause some deterioration. Polyester sewing thread or specially treated UVR nylon is better for prolonged exposure to sunlight. Nylon is usually fine if the seams are not exposed.
- Abrasion Resistant – Nylon sewing thread has excellent abrasion resistance.
- Heat – The nylon filament thread will start to yellow around 300F. Prolonged exposure to temperatures above 285F will cause deterioration. Nylon filament thread starts to stick around 445F and melts around 485 to 500F.
