TRIMTRAX® Thread Protection System
The unique Globe trim thread protective system
Trim has a tendency of separating from a garment, hanging loose, and requiring repair or replacement on gear in active service.
Unlike fabric, which is woven and therefore allows the stitching to become embedded, trim is totally impermeable. This results in the sewing thread sitting on top of the surface where it is exposed to everyday abrasion. As illustrated below, the addition of a second row of stitching does not alleviate the problem.
TRIMTRAX®, a cording that cushions and protects the sewing thread, is used to attach the trim.
Laboratory tests have shown that TRIMTRAX® provides five to seven times the trim stitch longevity when compared to traditional stitching with thread alone.
