Atlantis

Highly resistant Liquid Crystal Polymer thread used in the aerospace and military industries

Coats Atlantis thread is made from Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), a high-strength raw material that can withstand repetitive stress, strain and bending even under extreme conditions.

Atlantis has an exceptional resistance to hot, cold, humid and chemical environments, making it a great choice for demanding aerospace, military and naval products.

It was even used to sew the airbag system for the Mars Pathfinder mission, which benefitted from the thread's superior resistance to cuts and repetitive impact.
