Amann Group Debuts Xtreme-Tech Sewing Thread
Amann Group developed special twisting, coating and coloring techniques to create Xtreme-Tech, which the company reports is easy to process and to dye. The low-weight, high-strength thread is suitable for applications with high safety requirements, including sailing, haulage ropes, paragliders, fishing nets, aerospace, load restraint/lifting systems and protective clothing; as well as sports gear such as climbing equipment, ropes and harnesses. Amann initially developed Xtreme-Tech for its customer AmSafe Industries Inc., United States, which is currently using it to develop super-strong cargo restraint systems for Freighter Aircrafts.
Amann Group and DSM Dyneema have entered into a strategic trademark agreement under which the companies will market and sell Xtreme-Tech and other new products they plan to develop in partnership.
