The Elastic Ascolite®
TF Thermofusion Thread

The Ascolite® TF-Yarn was specially developed for the button shank wrapping process. In comparison with a normal sewing thread Ascolite TF-Yarn is a combination of the following components:

Elastic core

The elastic core of the Ascolite® TF-Yarn enables a wrapping under high tension in order to squeeze
the attaching sewing thread tightly.

Thermofusable layer

The thermofusable layer bonds the elastic thread together and eliminates loose ends and tails.

Colours

Because of the coloured outer component, the Ascolite® TF-Yarn is available in 64 colours

Fastness

Ascolite® TF-Yarn has been tested by Institute Hohenstein and United Laboratories and certified for Confidence in Textiles according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, current REACH Standards and M&S Quality Standards:

Ascolite® TF-Yarn is proved to be resisting to light, ironing, rubbing, washing and dry cleaning until 60 °C, even endure a tunnel-finisher with 140 °C without damage. It is harmless and non-toxic. Thread and colours can stand wear and tear for the lifetime of every garment.
