It has a soft, low friction finish which reduces the effects of needle heat and offers excellent abrasion resistance. Treated with specially formulated lubricant, Aptan offers excellent frictional characteristics during high speed sewing operations. It has controlled stretch characteristics for good loop formation and tight, firm and balanced stitches.
Aptan 6.6 nylon is 30% stronger than ordinary nylon 6.0 thread. The higher strength to fineness ratio makes very fine seams possible in footwear and other applications.
