Solar Fix PTFE Sewing Thread
This thread is unaffected by UV exposure, acid rain or mildew and is
guaranteed for the life of the fabric. It will not degrade with exposure to cleaning chemicals or industrial pollutants. It is a more expensive
thread but is worth the extra cost when the canvas on your boat
is left out year round, especially in the lower states, Bahamas,
Caribbean, the Med, etc. This thread is unlike ordinary thread which will usually start
breaking down requiring your bimini, dodger, etc., to have to be
re-sewn before the fabric is worn out.
