Anti-microbial thread recommendations (examples)

Coats Protect is an innovative process that gives anti-microbial properties to our sewing threads, which can be used in many applications.

The anti-microbial finish creates a "zone of inhibition" that prevents the growth of odour and stain-causing bacteria around the seam, leaving seam crevices clean and fresh.
