Meta Aramid Sewing Thread

Fire resistant protective garments require the highest level of security and durability to protect fire fighters, industrial workers and military combat personnel. Meta aramid threads is a flame resistant sewing thread made from 100% spun meta aramid fiber using a vertically integrated aramid manufacturing system and is uniquely engineered to provide exceptional flame / heat and electric arc resistance.  Meta aramid sewing thread is used in a variety of protective wear applications such as fire fighters clothing, work wear uniforms and army combat suits, and is certified to meet all safety regulatory standards and military specifications.

Hightec meta aramid sewing thread are  staple spun para-aramid sewing thread which can be used for the sewing of heat and flame protection equipment like blast furnace wear, fire fighter wear, safety shoes as well as for protection wear for cut and ballistic protection, for example cut protective gloves or bullet proof vests.

It can also be blend with anti-static fiber or stainless steel fiber to achieve flame retardancy as well as anti static sewing thread.
