Technical textiles are being used increasingly for the replacement of traditional materials in challenging applications, and their potential end uses are becoming more diverse. As a result, manufacturers of needles and threads have been faced with the need to develop highly specified products. In order to cater to the requirements of the industry, many manufacturers of sewing needles tailor the geometry of needles to the demands of the technical textile which is being sewn. This report features detailed insight and analysis into: the anatomy of a sewing needle; sewing needles for technical textiles; coatings for sewing needles; expanded polytetrafluroethylene (ePTFE) sewing threads for technical textile applications; sewing threads for use in high temperature applications; steel and carbon sewing threads; and innovative sewing threads for technical textile applications. It also features a wealth of information on innovative needles and threads developed by the following companies: 3M, Amann, American & Efird (A&E), AVS Industries (AVS), Cristex Thermal, Coats, Groz-Beckert, GŁtermann, Organ Needle, Polux, SageZander, Schmetz, Tekstil, Threads India, TIBTECH innovations, W.F.
