Buttons are twisted in and out of buttonholes every day, and the thread holding them onto garments can weaken, stretch, or become loose. Coats Secura Heat Activated Button Thread offers a solution to strengthen button attachment. Once the button is sewn on, follow the instructions to steam this self-fusing thread with your iron, melding the strands together into a single, extrastrong unit.
The thread fuses to itself, not to fabric. It is 100-percent polyester core-spun thread, infused with a fusible compound. Once an industrial product, it is now available for home sewing. Secura can also be used for snaps, hook-and-eye fasteners, bead and sequin attachment, and it is a safe, durable choice for children’s clothing. Available in 100-yard spools, Secura comes in six colors: white, black, smoke, indigo, praline, and French roast.
