Button securing with the Ascolite® TF-system
The unique Ascolite® button shank wrapping system is based on the combination of a button shank wrapping machine and the elastomeric heat sealable Ascolite® elastic Thread. The button attachment is secured by wrapping the filament under tension around the shank of the button. The result is a soft, durably secured, easy to fasten and perfectly finished button shank! Button attaching without Ascolite button shank wrapping is a no-go!
Quality of the button shank wrapping
Ascolite® stands for the finest quality in button shank wrapping for better button attaching. Most methods for shanking the buttons with normal sewing thread become loose after a short time. A shank wrapped with Ascolite® TF-Yarn instead remains tight even after years of wearing and washing.
Security of the button shank wrapping
Ascolite® TF-Yarn is guaranteeing the best button attaching for maximum possible button security. The highly elastic filament is wrapped around the button shank under tension. The button attaching thread is constrained and prevented from becoming loose by the constant force of the elastic filament. Sealed by thermo-fusion.
Comfort of the button shank wrapping
To increase the security of the button many technicians adjust the tension on the button-attaching machine to the maximum. This way there is no space between the button and the garment. The fastening with such a button is very tricky. The benefit of a shanked button is that they just glide easily through the buttonhole. The flexible and slim Ascolite® button shank even makes buttoning the cuffs and collar a simple job.
Esthetics of the button shank wrapping
Ascolite® wrapped button shanks look neat and elegant, without any knots or loose thread ends. The slim shank lets the button-hole close without bulging the fabric. With Ascolite ® you get an obvious quality sign even for non-professional customers and an extra sales argument for your garment.
