Tensylene® Sewing Thread

PTFE Sewing Thread

Tensylene® V-150 (polytetrafluoroethylene) sewing thread offers a unique blend of chemical and temperature resistance coupled with a low friction coefficient. Since PTFE is chemically inert, it is able to withstand exposure to the harshest of environments.

Tensylene® V-150 offers a breaking strength of 8 – 10 lbs and has proven to be a better alternative to other PTFE monofilament sewing threads (V-138 and V-92).
