How to Use Security Threads to Protect Clothing Brands.

We know that there are woven labels on apparel products, woven labels are also called cloth labels, and the materials include non-woven fabrics, polyester, and cotton. The woven label security thread is generally used in polyester woven labels and cotton woven labels because it can be woven into the polyester thread and cotton thread during the production process of the woven label.

The holographic security thread is made into a weft thread and is knitted into the woven label to create a safety barrier to protect brand products. It has become one of the most effective ways for clothing companies, footwear companies, or daily textile companies to protect brands.

Upgraded Product, Slitting Thread is as thin as 0.7mm.

The 0.7mm security thread produced by our company is an upgraded product of optical thread, which is specially used for textile tape and woven labels. It is manufactured through a special process with a line width of 0.7mm and can carry custom text and graphics to achieve the dual functions of brand promotion and safety protection.

Of course, some customers also require 0.8mm and 1mm line widths. Maybe you will ask why 0.7mm is called high precision. Because the width of this type of product carries the textual information of the product. The wider the thread, the easier it is to do, and the more difficult it is to do otherwise.

The narrower the width, the higher the requirements for materials, design, and slitting technology. The thread also contains very fine micro-nano optical anti-counterfeiting information, so it is called a high-precision security thread.

Besides, Suzhou Image also produces thread wider than 1mm, we called tear tapes, which are mainly used for opening and unsealing products with transparent film packaging such as tobacco, medicine, cosmetics, tea, poker, chewing gum, and so on.
