With a rather low investment compared to the total value of a fabric and installation, you can reduce the risk of a failing sewing thread close to zero.

Lenzing Profilen benefits:

  • 15 year Guarantee
  • Permanent 100% UV and weather resitance without additives (Total UV- and weather resistance are unique characteristics of PTFE. PTFE will neither rot nor degrade and is resistant to micro-organisms and pests)
  • High strength: Sewing Thread represents a very small part of the total cost of a fabric - but if the yarn fails, the whole fabric is destroyed.
  • High light transmission (up to 60%)
  • Extreme resilience / flexibility - even at low temperatures
  • Lenzing Profilen® has an operating temperature from -200°C to +260°C.
  • Easy maintenance: Lenzing Profilen® is resistant to salt, dirt, water and bird droppings ("lotus effect") and is therefore the first choice for sails and awnings.
  • Lenzing Profilen® cannot burn: LOI (limited oxygen index) higher than 95 %.
  • Lenzing Profilen® resists abrasion: PTFE has an extremly low coefficient of friction.
  • Anti wicking
  • Resistance to chemicals and polution
