Nomex Thread

Tempro Tec's Nomex thread is extremely heat resistant. It easier to use than fiberglass thread, features good chemical resistance, including hydrocarbons and other organic solvents. The thread begins to decomposes at 700° F. Testing has shown that after 1000 hours of 425°F exposure, Nomex thread retains about 80% of its original strength. Caution: Not recommended for use if it will be exposed to UV rays for any length of time.

Kevlar Thread (500°F)

Tempro Tec's Kevlar Thread is the thread of choice for high stress, volatile applications requiring extreme strength and heat protection. It is superior in strength to all other threads, and five times stronger than steel by weight. Exposure to UV rays will result in some loss of strength over time.

Stainless Steel Sewing Thread ST-304 (1000°F)

Tempro Tec's stainless steel sewing thread is used primarily in the sewing of high temperature removable and reusable insulation blankets used to cover piping and equipment in marine, aerospace, industrial and commercial industries. It is wound in a unique fashion and covered with three flame-retardant polyester threads to prevent metal-to-metal wear. The thread is then coated with silicone for smooth sewing. ST-304 maintains integrity after long term exposure to outside elements, and is resistant to mildew, aging, alkalis, chlorides and many other liquids and gases.

Inconel 600 Sewing Thread (2000°F)

Tempro Tec's Inconel 600 Thread is used for removable insulation blankets and pads intended for extremely high heat applications like those found in the marine, aerospace and industrial manufacturing industries. This thread is also used in the fabrication of fireproofing pads. Inconel 600 is wound in a unique fashion and covered with three flame-retardant polyester threads to prevent metal-to-metal wear. It is coated with silicone for smooth sewing. Maintains integrity after long term exposure to outside elements, and is resistant to mildew, aging, alkalis, chlorides and many other liquids and gases.

SGT 18-24 (S2-SS Insert Fiberglass Thread)

Tempro Tec'’s S2/SS is made with S-2 glass fiber with an integral Type 304 Stainless Steel wire coated with PTFE. The uniform coating completely encapsulates the thread, enhancing resistance to build-up of contaminants and repelling attack by most acids and alkalis. The smooth coating also improves handling characteristics, abrasion resistance and sewability. This S2/SS thread has high tensile strength, and will help reduce seam failure due to thermal shock and exposure.
