Coats Polyfil Glace is a cotton wrapped polyester corespun thread with a glace finish. Combines the excellent sewing performance of cotton with the superior strength and elongation characteristics of continuous filament polyester. The cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat even in the most demanding of applications. The glace finish binds together the fibrous surface of the thread and creates a lustrous finish to the thread with enhanced abrasion resistance.

Features & Benefits

  • Corespun thread that couples the high tenacity of a polyester filament core with a cotton wrap, delivering the sewing performance of a continuous filament thread, yet providing the appearance of cotton
  • Polished through a specially-engineered process using a customised formulation to ensure that the fibres are held together during tough sewing operations, resulting in strong seams
  • Cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat generated during high speed sewing, thus preserving the thread’s strength
  • In wet, outdoor conditions, cotton wrap absorbs the water and swells to fill the needle holes completely to prevent leakage
  • Controlled stretch characteristics yield excellent sewability with tight, firm stitches on multiple leather surfaces.
