Bonded Polyester Thread, Size 277/ Tex 200 / Ticket 10 / 840D/3

Bonded Nylon Thread #277 (also known as Tex 270 or 4-cord) is a heavy-duty thread used for a variety of applications including stitching on leather, tarps, canvas, and other types of thick material when a bold, visible stitch is wanted. Many upholsterers who work with leather furniture, saddles, and apparel choose to stitch with Bonded Nylon #277 as it has excellent strength and binds materials together in a well-formed lockstitch.

We recommend using a size #24 or #26 needle when sewing with bonded nylon #277. It’s a thick thread and should be paired with a larger-eye needle to reduce thread breakage or uneven tension. The larger the needle size, the larger the eye of the needle.

The bonding agent that coats our bonded nylon threads increases its breaking strength and helps reduce friction that develops at the needle. Commercial sewing machines and industrial sewing machines have a much higher stitch-per-minute rate than home sewing machines, so the bonding agent mitigates thread breaks and acts as a barrier between the thread and the heat from friction as the thread passes through the needle.

Bonded Nylon Sewing Thread

Bonded Nylon Sewing Thread was introduced in the 1930’s. After all these years it’s still one of the most widely used synthetic threads in the marketplace.

Bonded Nylon’s high strength-to-size ratio, abrasion resistance, sewing ease, and lower overall cost all attribute to its continued success in the industry. Nylon sewing threads can be used with most bleaches, organic solvents, most alkalis, and mineral acids.

Bonded Nylon stands up to heat but is not fire retardant. It yellows at 300˚F and melts at 500˚F. Nylon has excellent resistance to mildew, and aging, but will deteriorate with prolonged exposure to sunlight (UV). When sewing outdoor items that will be exposed to the sun polyester thread is recommended.
