Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread and yarn manufacturer, is showcasing some of its pioneering products on a single, consolidated stand at Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens for use in textile technologies, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany, from May 9 to 12, 2017, in hall 4.1, stand B43.

For the first time at Techtextil, Coats is bringing together its Performance Materials and Apparel and Footwear products on one stand. The stand is segmented into three core focus areas; ‘We are Experts’, ‘We are Innovators’, and ‘We are Pioneers’. It will also highlight the industry imperatives to which Coats responds; speed, innovation, responsibility, and quality.

Coats is one of the sponsors of the Fashion in Orbit Project. The apparel on display will include Coats threads and Coats Signal reflective tapes which have been incorporated as decorative features.

Innovation podiums on the stand will demonstrate some of the end uses of products. Two of them will display an exhaust cap, surf board fin, and also ‘paint’ applications featuring Synergex. Coats Synergex is a range of revolutionary composite fibres with high levels of hybrid fibre integrity and performance that can be processed into fabric form and used to mould strong, but lightweight, parts for industries including automotive and aerospace.

Another innovation podium will feature Coats Magellan being used in resistive heating: by passing a current through the yarn and conductive material it can heat a surface area. Coats Magellan is a range of futuristic ‘smart’ yarns that can be used in cutting-edge textile technology including RFID; by integration in a tag it can send signals to a phone. Other products include Coats Aptan XTRU and Gral XTRU, engineered yarns designed to be braided into a protective cover over wiring harness systems used in heavy vehicles and machinery. They can withstand contact with chemicals and fuels as well as extreme mechanical stresses.

One of the flagship products that will be showcased is Coats Epic. The variety of applications, quality, reliability, and colour range are just some of the reasons it is used in the production of more than one billion garments. There will be a range of anti-wick sewing threads for apparel end use that are free of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs). The PFC-free anti-wick finish prevents the capillary action of water transportation through thread in seams.

For the first time, the stand will feature products from Gotex, a Spanish based company which designs and manufactures high performance fibres, yarns, and tapes used in the telecommunications, energy and oil and gas sectors, which was acquired by Coats nearly one year ago. (GK)
