Nymo

Multifilament monocord nylon for twin-needle and high speed multi-directional sewing

Search via brand name

Or search via thread type

High-speed, multi-directional sewing creates thread rotation, causing traditional plied threads to untwist and fray. Coats Nymo unique, single-ply construction eliminates ply untwisting problems. A single ply of multi-filament nylon is lightly bonded at its point of contact, just enough to form a cohesive element without stiffening the product.

Its proprietary bond chemistry, special ‘tower bonding’ application process, and unique oval cross section combined to produce a wide range of Coats Nymo threads. Coats Nymo needle threads and fine denier bobbins are unsurpassed in quality and performance for twin-needle and high speed multi-directional sewing.

Features & Benefits

  • Nylon monocord construction is ideal for high-speed multi-directional sewing
  • Coats Nymo resists thread rotation in either left or right hand direction, providing excellent sewing on twin-needle machines
  • Coats Nymo has a unique oval cross section, providing low profile stitches; 6 - 11% lower thread usage per stitch
  • Seams lie flatter to seam surface providing more resistance to external abrasion
  • Coats Nymo is 20% finer than twisted threads of equivalent size; therefore fine needle sizes can be used to improve seam appearance and also to prevent cutting and tearing of fine leathers
  • High creep resistance reduces seam pucker around stitch corners
  • Parallelised nylon fibres reflect ‘ordered’ light, so colours blend better
  • Coats Nymo has no ridges, unlike twisted thread surfaces, thus resulting in less wear and tear of sewing machine parts
  • Unique Coats Nymo technology and colouration process; supple, bonded thread for fine denier sewing
  • The complete thread ‘system’ for multi-directional sewing provides a well-balanced combination of special needle threads and downsized bobbins in graded length pack outs for optimum productivity and high-quality sewing.
