Atlantis

Highly resistant braided liquid crystal polymer (BRA), thread used in the aerospace and military industries

Coats Atlantis is made from braided liquid crystal polymer (BRA), a new generation raw material that is commonly used in highly demanding aerospace and military applications.

Coats Atlantis offers exceptional flex fatigue resistance combined with superior load bearing characteristics. In fact, Coats Atlantis was used to sew the airbag assembly that cushioned the landing of the Mars Pathfinder on the surface of the red planet - a real mission-critical application.

Features and Benefits

  • Exceptional flex fatigue and fold characteristics, withstanding repetitive stresses and strains
  • High strength and modulus yield excellent load bearing and recovery properties
  • Excellent creep resistance which provides dimensional stability without developing any slack
  • Minimal moisture absorption, allowing Coats Atlantis to retain all its superior physical properties even under highly humid conditions
  • High resistance to chemical degradation and preserves properties under acidic or alkaline conditions which ensures performance under all chemical environments
  • Outstanding cut resistance is ideal for protection from sharp edges
  • Superior vibration damping characteristics, excellent for cushioning repetitive impact loads
  • High dielectric strength, ensuring excellent insulation properties
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion, along with excellent property retention in high and low temperatures, resulting in dimensional stability under heat or cold.
