Gore Tenara ultra strong sewing thread has a number of highly distinctive properties for the most extreme outdoor conditions:
This extra strong sewing thread is the ideal, colourfast choice for any outdoor application: for awnings, tarpaulins, sprayhoods, bimini-tops, awnings, convertibles, glamping tents, awnings, tarpaulins for longer covers, jumbo sun umbrellas, marine tops, boat covers, as upholstery thread, et cetera.: everything that has to last extremely long outside.
Tenara sewing thread is the strong, u.v.-resistant yarn that lasts longer than the fabric. It will not deteriorate due to exposure to the elements: not due to UV radiation or extreme temperatures, not due to salt water, dirt, acid rain, alkaline solutions, bleach or other cleaning chemicals. Tenara yarn will also never stain. With a lifespan of at least 15 years, this sewing thread will therefore last longer than the fabric into which it is sewn. Gore-Tex® guarantees it! See the distinctive features above of this more than strong sewing thread, which can be used on a regular sewing machine. Moreover, we have bobbins of only 300 meters.
Tenara is thinner, but also many times stronger than conventional thread. Because of this you can also stitch it with a standard household sewing machine (please note: after an adjustment, because it is smoother than standard). This special yarn is made of PTFE. This stands for polytertafluoroethylene.
If, for example, you have an expensive awning, boat hood, tarpaulin or your expensive upholstery, you don't want that fabric construction to fall apart after a few years. Even our most durable fabrics (boat acrylic, boat upholstery fabric, TenCate All Season, awning fabric and other waterproof fabrics) have a weak point: the stitched seams. At a certain point, standard sewing thread on the seam starts to wear and 'breaks' after a certain amount of time due to, among other things, UV rays, salt, detergents, dirt, water, rain and snow. This is particularly noticeable with tubular hoods, bimini tops, spray hoods and other tarpaulins.
- the polyester/cotton mix: sewing thread for tents and waterproof structures, because the cotton component is the perforated holes
close to moisture because of its swelling capacity.
- 100% polyester. More durable, but not suitable for a waterproof construction.
- Tenara yarn, for the toughest outdoor conditions - see properties above.
