Fusible Bonding Yarn

  • What is it?
  • Grilon Bonding Yarn is a low-melt multi filament yarn used for technical applications in the clothing industry worldwide. These yarns are made from either low-melt co-polyamide (nylon) or co-polyester (polyester). Yarns are produced to melt at a range of temperatures and in various yarn counts (D/TEX).

  • Melt Temperatures: 60°C and 160°C D/TEX: 23 - 840
    140°F and 320°F
  • What does it do?
  • Grilon Bonding Yarns are used in the textile industry to:

    • Improve quality of finished garment
    • Solve production problems
    • Innovate new production techniques
  • How does it work?
  • Grilon Combi Yarns are stitched, knitted or woven into fabric or garments. It is possible to be very exact in the use of Grilon and pinpoint precisely where it will be most effective. When the correct amount of heat is applied to Grilon Yarn, it produces a change in the molecular structure and melts.

  • Where is it used?
  • Grilon Bonding Yarn has been successfully used in the textile industry for many years. The possibilities are endless, but current uses include:

    • Unidirectional weaving - to produce flat fabrics in carbon or glass fibre
    • Seams - to prevent puckering
    • Blind Stitching - to prevent hems 'unraveling'
    • Picot Edging - to prevent picot yarn from snagging or pulling out
    • Trouser Waist Bands - replaces show and expensive sewing operations
    • Work Gloves - effectively seals raw edge at cuff
    • Bonded Chenille Yarn - to prevent 'shedding' of loose fibres
    • Bonded Sewing Threads - to prevent threads 'splitting' during sewing


Fusible Combi Yarn

  • What is it?
  • Fusible Combi Yarn is a low-melt filament yarn used for technical applications in the clothing industry worldwide. These yarns are made from low-melt co-polyamide (nylon) with a high tenacity polyester carrier thread which will not melt. Yarns are produced to melt at two temperatures and in various yarn counts (D/TEX).

  • Melt Temperatures: 85°C and 140°C D/TEX: 45 - 1,100
    185°F and 290°C

  • What does it do?

  • Fusible Combi Yarns are used in the textile industry to:

    • Improve quality of finished garment
    • Solve production problems
    • Innovate new production techniques

  • How does it work?

  • Fusible Combi Yarns are stitched, knitted or woven into fabric or garments. It is possible to be very exact in the use of Fusible Combi Yarn and pinpoint precisely where it will be most effective. When the correct amount of heat and pressure is applied to the Fusible Combi Yarn, it produces a change in the molecular structure and melts to become a bonding agent leaving the carrier thread in its original form.

  • Where is it used?

  • Fusible Combi Yarn has been successfully used in the textile industry for many years. The possibilities are endless, but current uses include:

    • Lace Making - to prevent edges of lace fraying
    • Seams - to prevent puckering
    • Blind Stitching - to prevent hems 'unraveling'
    • Trouser Waist Bands - replaces slow and expensive sewing operations
    • Embroidery - a new concept using foil to produce metallic embroidery
    • Hems (trousers, skirts, etc.) - eliminates need for sewing
    • Facings - producing flat finished facings and linings in tailored garments
    • Undercollar - tacking the collar to the undercollar
    • Chestpiece - for the placement of a chestpiece in a man's suit
