Dabond is a bonded, twisted continuous filament polyester thread. Combining superior sewing performance with excellent UV and abrasion protection, Dabond is specifically designed to provide resistance against harsh weather conditions. Dabond can withstand UV degradation in all outdoor applications that are exposed to marine water and sunlight. It uses a unique bonding technology that safeguards against ply untwisting in zig zag sewing and can sew through many layers of heavily finished fabric. Dabond also has a dual level lubricated finish for needle heat protection and smooth sewing. The metric 18tkt thread size is the most commonly used for general marine upholstery, vinyl and canvas work on industrial sewing machines with the metric 10tkt commonly used for sails or very heavy textiles. For domestic level sewing machines the metric 40tkt may be more suitable.
