Coats debuts adhesive thread for hems

Jun '14
Coats plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, is launching Hemseal, a new product delivering additional fixing qualities to the hems of tailored garments.  The adhesive thread has a low melt portion which adheres to fabrics when pressed under heat, helping to hold hems in place even if the stitching fails.  
 
Blind stitching hems of garments produces a neat, unobtrusive hem line but, because it is a chain stitch using a single thread, it can easily unravel and cause the hem to drop down.  Hemseal is used as part of the hem construction and can also be reactivated by repressing.
 
Rajiv Sharma, CEO, Industrial Division, Coats plc said: ‘The advantage of Hemseal is that the hem remains in place even if the blind stitch used to sew it unravels.  This helps enhance the durability of the garment and will reduce those annoying ‘instant’ hem drops that can happen in clothing like tailored suits and school uniforms.’
 
Hemseal can be used on most types of fabrics – including heavier ones requiring additional seam adhesion where it can be incorporated in the overlock stitching.
