Eureka Soft

Vardhman Eureka soft is nylon floss. The low twisted multifilament thread give the thread a soft feel and make it ideal for provide softness and comfort especially in “next to the skin” seams. It gives high extensibility and seam strength resulting in good seam security and low shrinkage characteristics, which ensures no seam distortion after washing. This thread is also used for next to skin wear embroidery applications due to its softness characteristic.

  • Zip attaching ,
  • Hand Basting ,
  • Trapunto ,
  • Quilting ,
  • Applique Etc.

It Is also called Vanish thread. After Stitching when the garment is subjected to Normal wash at room temperature , the thread dissolves in the water and desired effect is observed.

Strength : 900 grams.

Needle no : Needle number 11 Singer to be used for stitching.

As the thread is not lubricated so stitching machine Speed should be optimum for this application


Chemical Property :


Dissolves in room temperature in luke warm water.

Fuser

Fuser is specially designed thread plied core spun thread in which having core of polyester filament which gives high strength to the final thread. Special coating finish is applied on the thread which is having specific melting temperature to provide the very good adhesive property to the thread at its melting temperature. It may be used as in the needles of either lock stitch/chain stitch button sewing machine. Once the finished coating is activated after getting the specific heat for its melting and this provide the adhesive property and secures the button in place by binding the thread.

Applications:

  • Hand stitching of buttons
  • Bead security
  • Machine sewing buttons
  • Menswear and ladies wear

D Core Indigo

A variation on A&E’s D-CORE® premium core spun sewing thread manufactured with continuous filament polyester core and cotton staple wrap dyed with Indigo dyes. This construction provides a sewing thread with a higher strength over staple spun products. The Indigo dyes tend to wash down similar to the body fabric, allowing the thread to blend with the finished garment.

Advantages

  • Excellent sewability on manual and automatic multi-directional sewing machines.
  • Good seam strength and abrasion resistance
  • Can provide a wash- down appearance. Since finishing techniques differ we encourage those interested to obtain samples and test for intended results. Vardhman does not guarantee consistent wash down effects using D-Core® Indigo.
  • There is natural variation in the shading of the thread prior to sewing and laundering

Chroma

The perfect Overdyeing Thread


Chroma is a 100% mercerized cotton thread specially designed for sewing cotton garments,
that are to be post dyed. Garment overdyeing is a process where the thread specially 100%
cotton thread is dyed along with the dyeing of fabric. The threads meant for over dying
processes are Ready for Dyeing Threads or RFD threads. The RFD threads, which are
in bleached semi-white quality, have the property to absorb dyestuff molecules along with
the fabric when the latter is dyed. Chroma is produced from high quality, long staple cotton
specially treated under tension to provide excellent luster and higher strength.
The mercerization process gives the thread a very high affinity to the dyestuffs used
in the garment over dyeing process, making it an ideal choice for sewing 100% cotton garments.


The choice for versatility


V.Natura, a right choice for sewing / matt finish embroidery applications:

Shirts Blouses
Ladies Top Shorts & Pants
Trousers High Fashion Garments



Performance you can count on

  • 1. Chroma is relatively stronger than ordinary cotton thread. The higher strength to fineness ratio gives
    advantage of fine seam, high seam strength and smaller needle use, so garment damage is
    minimum.
  • 2. Chroma is engineered with a superior finish that offers excellent affinity for vat and reactive
    dyeing process employed in post dyeing of garment, making it suitable for ready to dyeing
    garments.
  • 3. The mercerization process offers excellent luster and increased strength and controlled stretch
    characteristics.
  • 4. Due to its high tenacity and excellent lubrication, it offers trouble free sewing and reduces
    thread breakage in the post dyeing/ washing process and post garment alteration are minimal.

Physical and Chemical properties

  • Effect of Acids :Disintegrated by hot dilute acids or cold concentrated acids. Sensitive
    to mineral and organic acids specially if halogenated. Unaffected by weak acids
  • Effect of Alkalis :Resistant to alkali. Swelling (mercerization) in caustics giving increase
    in luster and tenacity.
  • Effect of Heat :Negligible -very resistant to heat degradation. Burns readily, decomposes
    at 1600 C. Prolonged exposure to sunlight causes yellowing and strength loss.
  • Organic Solvents :Generally unaffected by most organic solvents. Generally unaffected
    by Sodium hypochlorite, sodium per borate and peroxide bleaches under controlled
    conditions. There is a probability of strength loss if contaminated with iron during bleaching.
  • Abrasion Resistance :Abrasion Resistance is comparatively lower than Synthetic threads of
    polyester or Nylon
  • Tenacity :Higher than ordinary cotton thread , suitable for High Speed Stitching
  • Elongation :4 to 6%. Good needle loop formation.
  • Shrinkage :Low generally less than 4%

*Vardhman strongly recommend that sample garments are dyed and finished

  • 1. Effect of Acids : Unaffected by weak acids. On halogenation could be sensitive to minerals and organic acids.
  • 2. Effect of Alkalis : Resistant to alkali.
  • 3. Effect of heat : Negligible , but prolonged exposure to sunlight causes yellowing and strengh loss.
  • 4. Organic Solvents : Generally unaffected by most organic solvents. Contamination with iron during bleach can result in strength loss.



Effect of UV:

Exposure to Sunlight Gradual loss of strength and tendency to yellowing.
Mildew Resistance Weak unless treated with mildew resistant finish.
Abrasion Resistance Low in comparison to polyester and nylon.
Tenacity Lower than synthetic yams.
Elongation 3 to 6 %. Good needle loop formation.
Shrinkage Generally less than 4%.
