Epic AWF

Anti-wick and PFC-free thread for water-resistant outdoor wear

Coats Epic AWF is an environmentally friendly, anti-wicking thread for water-resistant outdoor wear and workwear. It is part of our new range of anti-wick sewing threads that are free of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs). The anti-wick PFC-free threads for apparel end use are offered in the Coats polyester thread brands Epic and Gral.

This leading development is one of the many positive actions taken by us to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and safety. The threads have a PFC-free anti-wick finish which prevents the capillary action of water transportation through the thread in the seam.

Epic AWF is a high-tech corespun thread combines a high tenacity polyester filament core with a polyester fibre wrap to create to make a versatile and productive thread. The core provides excellent strength while the lubricated wrap enables the thread to perform exceptionally well during machine-sewing. Its excellent abrasion resistance helps you to achieve flexibility and durability in garment seams.

Epic AWF has a specially formulated finish to deliver a high degree of water resistance. We have made this globally available in an extensive range of colours.
