W.F. Lake Corp. manufactures it’s PTFE coated “E-Glass” fiberglass sewing thread from continuous “E” filament yarns, resulting in a strong, chemical resistant textile sewing thread.
Our uniform PTFE coating completely encapsulates the thread, enhancing resistance to build-up of contaminates and repelling attack by most acids and alkalis. Our smooth PTFE coating enhances the flexibility of the fiberglass yarn, making it suitable for many industrial applications and minimizing the tendency to kink, strip-back or break like other very high temperature threads.
This is our least expensive high temperature thread and is ideally suited to static applications (safety spray shields, gaskets, heat shields etc…). Where continuous flexing and bending is required, we recommend our “Beta / BC” R753-series product. The user should perform tests to determine suitability for their application
