Bonded Nylon: Bonding means the thread has been treated with a liquid resin that is cured and lubed. This process prevents fraying of a cut end and also protects against heat damage caused by high speed sewing. It can be used for serging rugs as the lockstitch, sewing leather goods, automotive trim, and anything that requires good abrasion resistance. The bonded nylons can be made in various sizes and colors. The finer the thread, the lower the number will be. For example, a size 69 thread will be a smaller denier than a size 138.
