When sewing a product or item displayed outdoors, it would be best to use a thread that can withstand heat and rain. A thread that has UV properties is a great sewing thread to use. 

Gutermann Tera & Terabond UV Threads are must-have outdoor sewing threads. Aside from the fact that it bears the brand's name, which has earned widespread respect in the sewing industry, it also promises a high-quality sewing experience.

This article will go over why Tera & Terabond threads are the best to use when outdoor sewing items. 

What Are Tera & Terabond Threads? 

Terabond is a UV stabilised continuous filament polyester with a UV stabilised component and property. This thread also has an extremely high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and sewability. 

Terabond can be used in automotive, footwear, luggage and handbags, outdoor products, covers/web slings, canvas covers, and leather mending. It also has a high break strength and abrasion resistance, resulting in maximum seam strength. 

On the other hand, Tera has exceptionally high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and sewability. Furthermore, the excellent elongation properties ensure a beautiful and consistent seam appearance. 

This thread is suitable for use on leather goods and upholstery. It is also ideal for seams that require brilliance and high rub resistance. 

Tera thread is made entirely of continuous polyester filament. As a result of the heat-repellent preparation, it also has excellent thermal resistance. 

The surface of Gutermann Tera is silky and shiny, and it has high abrasion resistance. Tera is slightly stronger than Mara in comparable Tex sizes. It can also be used for outdoor fabrics like awnings, marine upholstery, umbrellas, and similar applications. 

Tera is resistant to UV and chlorine because it is made entirely of polyester; as a result, Tera is more commonly used outside or in areas with a lot of sunlight. 

What Makes Tera and Terabond Great at Sewing Outdoor Items? 

Both Tera and Terabond have undergone the process of "inner bonding." This is a bonding system in which polyester or nylon yarns are twisted around a thread-like inner strip. Following that, the thread is heated to a specific temperature. 

The bonding agent melts and specifically bonds the yarns, making the thread stronger. Furthermore, the thread's outer surface is much smoother, resulting in the "high sewability" for which Gutermann is famous. 

Aside from the fact that both threads are inner bonded, they also have UV properties, which is ideal for sewing items exposed outside. 

Polyester UV-resistant sewing threads are ideal for outdoor applications due to their durability, strength, and low shrinkage & stretch.
