A premium quality 100% polyester corespun thread which delivers passive flame retardant properties
Epic RD is a premium quality 100% polyester corespun thread which delivers passive flame retardant properties.
It is produced to conform to U.S. Legislation CFR1615 and BS EN 14878:2007 (Nightwear Safety Regulations), which requires flame retardant materials to be used in non-snug-fitting children's nightwear.
Use in combination with Epic RD in the needles and Gramax RD in the loopers for softness and comfort against the skin.
Epic RD is a high-tech corespun thread that combines a high-tenacity polyester filament core with a polyester wrap. This allows you to use a finer thread, giving a better seam appearance without compromising on seam strength. The thread is specially lubricated to ensure it performs well in demanding sewing environments.

Flame Retardancy in Textile Products
Flame retardancy in textile products depends on a complex interaction of variables, and thread and seam performances are highly dependent on other factors, including the type of fabric which is used. It is the responsibility of the thread users to satisfy themselves that the thread meets their particular fire retardant requirements when sewn into a finished product.
Since conditions and applications vary considerably in the use of a product, the customer and/or user should assure herself or himself that the product meets end customer requirements and is suitable for the intended end use.
For more robust heat and flame protection please refer to the Coats range of Performance Wear threads which are made from materials with inherent fire resistance properties.
