Coats Signal thread is a high-tech retro-reflective sewing and embroidery thread for fashion applications in apparel sewing. When illuminated by a light source, it helps to enhance the visibility at night-time or in difficult weather conditions and adds that extra special decorative feature. It is a specially developed thread with an extraordinary high level of retro-reflectance coupled with good sewability.

Coats Signal thread is primarily for high visibility fashion applications. It is not for safety wear where strict norms for reflectivity values are specified.
