American & Efird (A&E), a global leader in industrial sewing thread manufacturing, has introduced Repel, an advanced, PFC-Free, water repellency enhancement. REPEL is an additional feature customers can order and have applied to A&E's global sewing thread brands. Repel is ideal for backpacks, footwear, athletic wear, uniforms, and workwear.

As consumers evolve in how they use and wear products, A&E believes it is important to support manufacturers, retailers, and brands by producing sewing threads that evolve to meet and exceed customer expectations.

"As a trusted partner, we work very closely with our customers to understand and anticipate current and future needs, offering the very best sewing thread and specialty yarn products in the marketplace," said Chris Alt, senior vice president Sales. "REPEL is an example of smart innovation as A&E continues to expand the boundaries of what performance sewing threads can do through the development of advanced and thoughtful products."

A&E's popular Perma Core D-Core, Wildcat Plus, Perma Spun and Excell product lines and virtually all other apparel and non-apparel thread and specialty yarn products A&E manufactures are compatible with this new water repellent feature.

Repel will not affect product colour.

Repel will carry A&E's PFCZERO designation as it contains no perfluorocarbons (PFC-free). Perfluorocarbons are considered greenhouse gases which have been linked to global warming. It has been 3rd party tested on seam and meets rain test method. (SV)
