Coats Helios Range

Thermal Insulation Filtration High Strength Outdoors

The Coats Helios range. Resilience without compromise.

Some manufacturing problems require thread with peerless levels of resilience. That’s why we developed Coats Helios — a range to meet the most rigorous demands of industry that’s also easy to use and soft enough for wearables.

For outstanding thermal insulation there’s Helios C and Helios K. For outdoor use and filtration media fit for the temperatures of an autoclave, there’s Helios P. And for supreme strength ten times stronger than high-grade steel, there’s Helios S.

Coats Helios S


Coats Helios S is made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and commercially available premium gel-spun, self-lubricating thread.

  • Highly abrasion-resistant, cut-proof and an extremely light thread
  • Exceptional strength and rigidity. Size for size, Coats Helios S is 10 times and 40% stronger than high grade steel and aramids respectively
  • Delivers unique properties including high tensile strength and modulus, combined with cut-resistance
  • Has low density – less than 1 gram per cubic centimetre, making it float on water – giving it a high strength to weight ratio
