What sets this thread apart from the other conductive thread that we carry is the fact that it’s actually spun from 12UM stainless steel fiber making it incredibly smooth and without the loose hairs seen on other bobbins. This means that while it may not be easy to solder to, because it’s stainless, it also won’t burn up when you touch it with a soldering iron. Suitable for hand or machine sewing (as a bobbin thread). We’ve had no trouble using it for close, tight connections, but if you’re worried, waxing the thread should keep it manageable!

  • Material : 12UM Stainless steel fiber
  • Gram Weight:0.2458g/m
  • Strength:2.8KGF
  • Diameter(mm):0.12
  • Resistance (Ω/m) : 27
  • 12m per spool (on plastic spools)
