Epic AS

Helping to prevent down leakage in insulated jackets

Coats Epic AS is a highly versatile sewing thread made from 100% polyester. Our AS range of sewing threads are designed to meet the needs of outdoor performance sportswear, woven outerwear and fashion jackets.

In drier atmospheric conditions the lower static and lower dynamic friction values of Epic AS minimise the attraction of down towards the needle, helping to prevent down leakage through needle holes. The lower dynamic friction values of Epic AS also enhances the uniformity of the stitch formation giving you neat and well balanced seams.

Epic AS has outstanding sewability and provides solutions for oil-sensitive materials such as C0 fabrics. In addition, it allows for improved sewing performance on complex materials due to its higher heat shield.

The construction of the thread, with the continuous filament polyester core and soft staple polyester wrap, delivers high seam strength and excellent performance. It has outstanding sewability and creates a smoother, softer handle to the sewn seam when compared with conventional sewing threads.
