Textile Care Labelling

Care Label

The shades are commercially bleach fast and all physical properties of Coats Epic Rugged conform to specifications. These tests have been carried out under standard conditions of commercial denim laundries. When using especially harsh wash processes with strong concentrations of bleach, high temperature and/or excessively long process times, these may have a detrimental effect even on Coats Epic Rugged threads. For especially harsh wash processes and for innovative wash processes with new chemicals, it is recommended to carry out a full test wash to ensure the thread fully meets the requirement under the intended conditions before bulk.
