Here we have links to A&E products specific for many common Markets and Industries. This includes Thread Selection Matrixes that will help you to quickly choose the thread type and size commonly used for any sewn product.

Due to the diversity of fiber types, thread constructions and size, and proper thread selection can be a daunting task. We simplify this for you by using the links found in this section of our website.

The key product characteristics used to determine the proper sewing thread include sewability, seam performance, appearance, availability and price.
