MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — April 2, 2020 — Lenzing Plastics GmbH & Co KG of Lenzing, Austria has recently named Polyfab USA as the Master Distributor of their Profilen line of PTFE sewing thread for the shade, awning and marine industries in North and South America. Most recently sold by a sales company in Pennsylvania, Profilen has been sold in the USA for 30 years and built up a loyal following of satisfied customers.
Profilen PTFE sewing thread is UV resistant, flame retardant, resistant to highly corrosive environments and free of heavy metals, chlorine and plasticizers. It is covered under a factory warranty for the lifespan of the fabric it’s sewn onto.
According to the manufacturer’s website, “The seam of a product indicates its quality and reliability because if the seam does not hold, even the best fabric is useless. This is why it makes sense to invest in high-quality sewing thread for high-quality products. Profilen PTFE sewing thread is available in a wide range of sizes to suit your needs.”
