Kingbird, the leading manufacturer and supplier of high performance threads and yarns, has introduced a series of fireproof threads that use a fire retardant meta-aramid fibre. The thread is an excellent heat and flame resistant with self-extinguishing properties suitable for applications such as making fabrics, bags, garments and embroidering logos.

“Kingbird fireproof thread is based on years of research where we blend the available technological advancements and our patented innovations to improve performance and reliability of our products. With a range of colours, smooth to touch options and unmatched strength, we believe these threads meet specific needs in the industry,” said Jessica Lee, Kingbird’s product manager.

This fire retardant fireproof thread is made using an advanced fire retardant meta-aramid fibre. The thread, about 2.5 times stronger that nylon and polyester materials, is available in about 11 colours. The threads introduced are meant for both fire retardant sewing and embroidery.

This fireproof thread does not melt and it chars at 600F while it begins to decompose at 700F. This makes it suitable for a range of industrial applications. Even at high temperature, the Kingbird fireproof thread will still withstand high tensile stress.

The thread will maintain all its physical and chemical properties irrespective of the hostile environmental conditions. Kingbird has adopted unique and modern manufacturing technique to produce a semi crystalline fibre. With the molecular chain partially oriented along the axis of this fireproof fibre, users can benefit from unmatched strength, chemical and physical properties.

Due to the excellent fire retardant properties, Kingbird fireproof threads are suitable for fire retardant fabric, fireproof mat, electrical insulation, protective clothing for fire fighters, military personnel accessories, automotive heat shields, auto racing accessories and embroidering logos or names on fire retardant garments.
