The colours printed above are not 100 % matching our original colour card.

Ascolite® TF-Yarn has been specially developped  for button shank wrapping. TF-yarn has the following advantages compared to normal sewing yarn: :

Elastic core

The elastic core of the yarn allows such a tight wrapping under Tension, that the main sewing threads are clamped together and cannot get loose again.

Thermo-fusible outer layer:

The thermo-fusible layer bonds the wrapping threads together and does not leave loose ends.

 

Fastness

Ascolite® TF yarn has been tested several times by internationally recognized institutes (Institut Hohenstein, SGS, United Laboratories, etc.) and is certified according to Ecotex Standard 100, REACH Standards and  M&S-Quality standards.

Ascolite® is ecologically safe; free from toxic substances, resisting to light, ironing, rubbing and washing proof up to at least 60 ° C as well as resistant to chemical cleaning, even surviving tunnel finisher up to 140 ° C.

Ascolite® stands for the finest quality of buttonshank wrapping. A button secured with Ascolite® TF or SF remains tight and impeccable even after years of wearing and washing. Unsolvable thanks to heat-setting.
