FLEXLON POLY - MONOCORD BONDED POLYESTER

Monocord Threads - are made from continuous filaments of polyester that have been bonded together. They have very little twist so that they look like a single cord of yarn. Because of the way these threads are made, they appear to be flat and ribbon-like, which provides a low-seam profile and therefore a high degree of resistance to abrasion. Monocord threads are exceptionally strong for their size and are used in the manufacturing of furniture, shoes, and other heavy duty applications.
