Other applications:

Onyx is a sewing thread made from polyamide 6.6 continuous filament. Polymer is formed through the polycondensation process in polyamide 6.6. The fibres are produced through the melt spinning process. Polyamide features a high breaking strength and abrasion resistance as well as a high elasticity and good crease resistance.

Onyx is an ultra-strong sewing thread for heavy-duty seams. This sewing yarn is extremely robust, abrasion-resistant and durable, and is often used for closing and topstitch seams. Last but not least, Onyx convinces through its excellent strength properties.

Eco-friendly & water-repellent: the range of Onyx is complemented by WRe, AMANN’s new water-repellent, PFC-free finish, which is available on request. Further, Onyx is certified according to 96.0.8810 STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.

Onyx is used if seams are exposed to extreme stress and have to be ultra-strong. Consequently, Onyx is ideally suited as sewing thread for shoes & accessories, and in particular as sewing thread for shoes, sewing thread for bags, sewing thread for suitcases, as well as for belts and small leather goods. Moreover, Onyx is used on the fields of apparel, home interior and techtex.
