Outdoor-Pro is the innovation in the field of bonded water repellent polyester sewing thread from Amann, the renowned German sewing thread giant. Although Amann already had the strong sailmaking thread Serabond in its range, Outdoor-Pro is an improved and modern version of this bonded polyester thread. By the way: bonded* sewing thread is much better than normal polyester sewing thread anyway! Because this new bonded polyester sewing thread is water-repellent, this sewing thread does not soak up water, as is the case with conventional (standard) polyester sewing thread. So where a standard polyester sewing thread leaks through or at the seams, this is minimised with OutdoorPro sewing thread (depending on the sewing method - see below).
THE DIFFERENCE when sewing outdoor fabrics such as canopies, boat covers, awnings, awnings, boat covers, tents, canvas and all types of fabrics for lounge furniture, garden furniture, garden cushions, outdoor clothing, etc. Below you will find detailed product information on the other special features of this unique professional bonded* sewing thread.
TIP: when sewing synthetic outer fabrics: Do not use needles that are too thick, as this will create holes in the fabric that are too large. We therefore advise you to use double-sided adhesive tape so that the adhesive of the tape finally closes the needle holes. This is also available from us. Please search for the word "double-sided adhesive tape" in the search bar to close perforated holes in the fabric. Or click here.
Whether awnings, boat covers, outdoor furniture, awnings, outdoor clothing or hiking boots: this hard-wearing, bonded* polyester sewing thread is the ideal water-repellent sewing thread for outdoor fabrics. Incomparable to conventional polyester thread. Innovation from 2023: water-repellent, does not absorb water. Note: With conventional polyester, this results in leaks at the seams.....
Tip for plastic outer fabric: sew with double-sided adhesive tape - see above/first paragraph
Polyester sewing thread - also known as bonded polyester - looks, feels and sews like nylon sewing thread, but is more resistant to sunlight and mould than nylon thread. This is due to the natural properties of polyester fibres.
Regarding bonded sewing thread: if you are sewing at high speed and in several directions, it is advisable to use thread with an adhesive layer to prevent tangling and fraying. Bonded sewing thread is NOT STANDARD POLYESTER SEWING THREAD! It has a resin coating that prevents the thread plies from opening in opposite directions and sticking together. This bonded coating ensures a smooth, even surface and holds the ends together, making it suitable for very fast sewing, even with complicated patterns. Bound sewing thread also has the advantage that it does not fray easily at the cut ends and is slightly firmer, making it easier to thread and use with needles.
