Coats offer new zips & sewing threads for sportswear
Mar '13
World leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business Coats plc is rolling out two new products targeted at the sports footwear and apparel industry - Coats Opti S Gym and Coats Eloflex sewing thread.

Coats Opti S Gym zips use a clever auto-lock clip-down slider and puller - eliminating the problem of dangling zip pullers that can cause irritation during exercise.  

Coats Eloflex is a revolutionary sewing thread, high in elasticity and tenacity, making it perfect for use in the seams of garments with high points of strain such as sportswear, leotards and gym wear, as well as the neck linings of knitwear; swimwear, underwear and stretch denim.  The thread’s high stretch properties, strength and durability significantly reduce the risk of seams splitting and tearing.  

Frazer Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, Coats plc, said: ‘Coats Opti S Gym and Coats Eloflex are further examples of our varied portfolio of apparel, footwear and specialty thread, yarn and zip innovations.  Both products demonstrate our continued dedication to responding to our customers’ needs and our commitment to pioneering invention.’

Coats Opti S Gym zips and Coats Eloflex are available globally in an extensive range of colours.
