Superior Threads Kevlar® Thread
Superior Threads offers Kevlar® thread for various industrial uses. Kevlar thread has become known for many advantageous properties. First, Kevlar thread is usually more than twice as strong as polyester or nylon threads. Second, Kevlar thread has extremely little or no stretch, which helps hold a very tight seam. Third, Kevlar thread does not melt like other fibers. Instead, Kevlar thread decomposes around 800 degrees Fahrenheit (or 426 degrees Celcius).
Kevlar thread is used in applications where high-heat resistance is needed and where strength is an added plus. Some applications of Kevlar thread are fire suits, racing gear, tactical gear, mattresses, and much more.
As mentioned, Kevlar thread is extremely strong. Our Kevlar thread is all bonded Kevlar thread and is available in natural color (which tends to be a yellowish color). The thread is bonded to make it smoother for sewing machines. We offer bonded Kevlar thread in size 69 (Tex 70), size 92 (Tex 90), size 138 (Tex 135), and size 207 (Tex 210).
Size 69 bonded Kevlar thread has a break strength of 23 pounds. Size 92 bonded Kevlar thread has a break strength of 30 pounds. Size 138 bonded Kevlar thread has a break strength of 45 pounds. Lastly, size 207 bonded Kevlar thread has a break strength of 64 pounds.
Due to the amazing characteristics of bonded Kevlar thread, it is not a cheap thread and costs significantly more than bonded nylon or bonded polyester threads; however, with bonded Kevlar thread, you get very high heat resistance and incredible thread strength.
Due to the inherent costs to make bonded Kevlar thread, we understand the price may be difficult if only a small amount of thread is needed. For that reason, Superior Threads allows you to purchase bonded Kevlar thread by the foot in custom lengths, if you desire.
