Features and Benefits


  • The inherent crimp properties of Coats Surfilor deliver excellent seam coverage and seam comfort
  • Coats Surfilor provides exceptional softness in the seams where a nylon thread is preferred over polyester
  • Low friction sewing lubricant helps provide good sewing performance


The softness of a seam relates to a number of factors including the exact choice of thread in needle and spreader, fabric, sewn seam direction, stitch density and thread tension.

Please refer to our technical bulletin on Soft and Secure Seams or further guidance.

Nylon has lower wash fastness properties than polyester and we recommend taking extra care when using textured nylon looper or cover threads in combination with polyester needle threads as a colour difference is likely to emerge with frequent domestic washing during the lifetime of the garment.
