Designed for secure hems on tailored garments
Coats Hemseal is a fusible low-melt thread that creates a reliably secure hem. It creates extra secure hems and blind stitching, which not only gives you confidence in your garments but reduces repair and return rates.

Hemseal is designed for use in tailored trousers, dresses and skirts and delivers additional security to the blind stitched hem. Hemseal addresses the common problem of hems falling down due to the blind stitch unravelling. It is a reliable solution to an everyday problem and will eliminate a major cause of customer complaints, preserving your reputation for quality.

It is certified to Öko-Tex Standard 100, class I, the most stringent class covering textile items for babies and toddlers. Hemseal meets our Coats restricted substance list.

By adding Hemseal into the hemming process you can produce a secure hem. Hemseal is simply laid inside the overlock edging during this process. No additional machinery is required and the time taken to add Hemseal is included in the standard minute value for this operation. The heatpress finishing process activates the adhesive properties of the Coats Hemseal, creating a durable, clean, high-quality finish. Hemseal is easy and practical to use.

Should the blindstitch become unravelled during garment wear, the hem remains fixed due to the adhesive properties of Hemseal. Coats Hemseal can be used successfully on most fabric types
