Satees® continuous filament polyester thread
CF Nylon Thread
High strength nylon sewing thread
Hongfeng Satess® filament nylon thread has higher strength and elongation properties than polyester thread. With soft and low friction characteristics, Hongfeng Satees can reduce the effects of needle heat and offer excellent abrasion resistance.

Filament Nylon Thread Restrictions
Bonded nylon thread is popular for its versatility, durability and dimensional strength.
Outdoor applications with prolonged exposure to sunlight. High-strength filament nylon sewing thread can withstand moderate sun exposure, provided it is not exposed to the sun for extended periods of time, or has some kind of ultraviolet (UV) protection (such as windshields or unexposed seams). That’s why it is popular in automotive interiors, upholstery and many other applications. It should not be used on outdoor furniture and sewing sails, awnings, tarpaulins. In these cases, polyester high-strength thread or UVR nylon thread is a better choice. Polyester looks and feels similar to nylon and has a very similar size strength.
Flame Retardant Apparel and Gear – Nylon High Strength Sewing Thread will yellow at 300F, stick at 445F and melt at 500F. First responder clothing and equipment and some high temperature conveyor belts require higher flame resistance. Use aramid or flame retardant sewing thread in these cases. They are heat resistant to 600F or higher and will not melt. However, they do not treat UV light as well. Their price is much higher than nylon.
Critical Strength Requirements
Nylon is strong, but Kevlar (aramid) is about twice as strong. For example, 92-gauge nylon has a tensile strength of 15 pounds; Kevlar (aramid) in the same size has a tensile strength of 30 pounds. The downside to Kevlar (aramid) is that it costs about five times as much as nylon and is only yellow. Consider using heavier weight nylon or double stitching for strength requirements.
Our nylon high-strength sewing thread has a smooth, shiny, shiny finish and is not suitable for garments that require a soft, fuzzy, cotton look. In these cases, cotton, spun polyester and wool nylon are better and less expensive options.
Transparent or invisible suture Related categories: Monofilament thread. Monofilament is also made of nylon. It is constructed similar to fishing line and is classified separately.
Nylon handles some chemicals well but not others.
