Gral AS

Excellent static and dynamic friction values reduce leakage of “down” through the needle hole

Coats Gral AS is a 100% polyester continuous filament sewing thread with a smooth surface, creating a clean seam appearance.

Our Coats AS range of threads are designed to meet your needs for outdoor performance sportswear, woven outerwear and fashion jackets.

In drier atmospheric conditions the lower static and lower dynamic friction values of Gral AS minimize the attraction of down towards the needle, helping to prevent down leakage through needle holes. The lower dynamic friction values of Gral AS also enhances the uniformity of the stitch formation providing neat, well balanced seams. The reduced frictional values also allow smoother thread pull off through the sewing machine helping to deliver longer lasting seams.

Gral AS creates a smoother, softer handle to the sewn seam when compared with conventional sewing threads. It allows lower tension settings, improving the stitch balance and providing neater and flatter seams. It also allows for improved sewing performance on complex materials due to its higher heat shield and provides outstanding suability.
