Eloflex AS stretch seams

Eloflex AS

Controlled elongation minimises the risk of seam extension failure on stretch fabrics

Coats Eloflex AS is a great option for soft and secure stretch seams designed for the needs of outdoor performance sportswear, woven outerwear, fashion jackets and next-to-skin garments.

Its controlled elongation minimises the risk of seam extension failure on stretch fabrics.

In drier atmospheric conditions the lower static and lower dynamic friction values of Eloflex AS minimise the attraction of down towards the needle, helping to prevent down leakage through needle holes. The lower dynamic friction values of Eloflex AS also enhance the uniformity of the stitch formation allowing neat, well balanced seams.
