FOR ALL APPLICATIONS

Conventional sewing threads lose their properties over time under the influence of UV radiation, salt water and other weather conditions. Our weatherproof sewing threads and yarns for outdoor use can withstand the toughest stresses for years.
We offer weatherproof sewing threads for all applications: Whether sewing threads for sun protection, upholstered furniture, tents, sails, boat covers or marquees. Or for sewing light and heavy fabrics, as well as challenging materials.

We provide advice on application techniques to the best of our knowledge and with due diligence. However, any statements or information about the products’ suitability and application do not release the customer from its obligation to do its own tests and trials for establishing the products’ suitability for the intended processes and purposes.

Water repellent

Outdoor applications are exposed to rain and moisture without protection. With water-repellent protective properties, our products offer the optimal basis for dense seams.

One of our products is Mara WA. The water-repellent effect of the sewing thread is proven by the methylene blue test. The capillary/wicking effect is used to measure the water-repellent properties of the specially designed thread. Mara WA shows no rise after two hours compared to the non-repellent alternative.

COLOR FASTNESS / UV RESISTANCE

Our sewing threads are dyed with special dyes and a special finishing method. Thanks to this special colouring, our threads are UV-resistant and retain their colour for years even under intense radiation – without fading or discolouration.

DIMENSIONAL STABILITY & TEAR RESISTANCE

Our sewing threads are tear-resistant and dimensionally stable thanks to bonding or thermal settings. The threads lie stably in the seam – without shrinking or warping. The light-resistance technology used reduces the loss of stability and also provides water-repellent properties.

Zertifikate

Tested quality

In close cooperation with the Institute for Textile and Process Technology Denkendorf (ITV), our products have been tested for UV and seawater resistance. In a specially developed test, the ITV Denkendorf subjected filament bundles and seam samples to weathering, which simulated a southern European Mediterranean climate over a period of 5 years. The result: even after intense UV radiation and exposure to seawater, our sewing threads have significantly better values in terms of tear strength and colour fastness than high-quality comparable products.
