Dual Duty AWF

Polyester corespun with cotton wrap with a water resistant finish

Coats Dual Duty AWF has a specially formulated finish which delivers a high degree of water resistance, making it an excellent choice for outdoor and sporting goods.

This premium quality corespun thread combines a high tenacity polyester filament core with a natural cotton cover. The ecofriendly PFC-free anti-wick finish inhibits the capillary effect, thereby ensuring that no water is taken up by the thread. This leading development is one of the many positive actions taken by Coats to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability and safety.

When the correct sewing tension is used, the transport of water through the needle hole is prevented. Dual Duty AWF is a popular thread for speciality applications, e.g. sailing gear, life jackets, heavy duty awning and tent sewing.
