Features and Benefits

  • Superior abrasion resistance for demanding end-uses
  • Produced using the most advanced technology to guarantee optimum performance
  • Excellent luster and available in a range of colors
  • The PFC-free anti-wick finish prevents the capillary action of water transportation through the thread in the seam
  • Engineered for sewing at the highest speeds
  • Finished with a lubrication to reduce migration of the lube on to the fabric
  • Superior color fastness and chemical resistance


Should the application require higher levels of color fastness, it is recommended to check the fastness level before use. This is particularly recommended for dark blues, bright reds and black where color fastness can be an issue. The highest level of color fastness is achieved with the special washfast trilobal polyester product Sylko WF which is available in a select shade range.
