NEW Thread Innovations

A&E is excited to introduce 3 new and innovative products to the market place.  Each of these new innovations were displayed at the 2018 TexProcess North America trade show.

(1) REPEL is a new, PFC-Free, special water repellent treatment that A&E is able to apply to our apparel and non-apparel sewing thread, and specialty yarn products. This treatment gives manufacturers of backpacks, footwear, athletic wear, uniforms, workwear and other outdoor accessories enhanced water repellency. REPEL is an additional feature customers can order and have applied to A&E’s global sewing thread brands.

REPEL does not affect color and will carry A&E’s PFCZERO™ designation as it contains no perfluorocarbons (PFC-free). Perfluorocarbons are considered greenhouse gases which have been linked to global warming. It has been 3rd party tested on seam and meets rain test method: ISO 22958-2005 (OR AATCC 61).
