Workwear and uniforms - Tunics
Tunics worn as workwear may be subjected to much higher levels of wear and washing than more conventional garments.
The sewing threads used to produce these garments must withstand these tough conditions for their lifetime. Coats range of industrial sewing threads have the physical properties to deliver a lifetime of service within such garments even when subjected to relatively harsh conditions.
Alternative thread types may be used depending on required final quality. The thread size will determine the choice of needle size.
Where two Tex sizes of thread have been suggested the choice will be determined by the demands of the stitching operation, the amount of load / demand placed on the seam and the type and weight of fabric being sewn.
The sewing thread recommendations laid out above are intended as a guide to aid the construction of garments with good quality seams. As garments of the same generic type differ in terms of fabric substrate and construction, and both making up methods and post make up processing can greatly vary, these recommendations should be viewed as a good starting point for thread selection.
Garment specific recommendations for thread and needle selection as well as accurate thread consumption figures and on-site technical support can be obtained by contacting your local Coats' office.
These recommendations and consumption figures are intended as a guide only and are given in good faith but without warranty or liability on the company or its employees.
