 OUTERWEAR COATINGS 

 LAMINATED & COATED FABRICS 

                     

3CS uses a combination of laminated and coated products for a number of

reasons; Coated fabrics provide a flexible cost effective alternative to

lamination. Laminated fabrics provide a very durable highly resilient

waterproofing option. Laminated fabrics maintain a higher waterproofness

for a much longer period of time.

 

 COATING TYPES  

DWR COATED

                                      

Durable water repellence coating, this Teflon based coating is added

to the outer shell of the fabric to provide a strong barrier against water

water and also great stain resistance properties.

 

DUPONT TEFLON DWR COATING

                                             

This is the best water repellence available period. This water repellence

system provides a superior protection against snow and water. It also has

a great resistance to oils dust and grease. By using DUPONT TEFLON  your

garment stays water resistant for a much longer period even after 15 wash

cycles the NANO DWR function maintains over 90% of its efficiency.

 

 LINING FABRICS 

SOFT TRICOT MICROFIBRE

A soft-brushed polyester that adds comfort and warmth by using water resistant

fibres to quickly and effectively wick moisture away from the body.

POLY MESH

soft-netted fabric with 1/16" channels is incorporated into the garment into

areas that are more prone to possible overheating. Its fundamental assembly

efficiently moves unwanted heat and moisture away from the body in targeted

body zones.

LUX FUR

This is a furry completely animal friendly deep pile synthetic fur to add extra

insulation. No squirrels were harmed in this process.

FUSED NYLON PVC / TAFFETA

This is a combination of nylon taffeta and high elasticity PVC coating to create

a 100% waterproof barrier in key areas to completely seal out all moisture. Used

in key areas like boot gaiters and powder skirts.

NYLON TAFFETA

70-denier grade nylon is used in the main lining areas of the jacket and pants

combined with other lining materials to create a complete engineered lining

solution.

HOLLOW CORE POLY INSULATION

This keeps heat where its needed, excellent insulation value with an amazing low weight

 and bulk. the unique structure of the fibres creates a higher number of air pockets to store

heat that increases the insulation performance. We use varied combinations in sleeves and body 

areas to create an engineered insulation defence. 

 CONSTRUCTION 


 

SEAM ENGINEERING

 

Without the correct strength thread a seams performance is more than halved this is why we go to extra lengths

to use premium water resistant polyester core spun threads.These threads are specifically used for their high

strength and abrasion resistance properties. In addition with the high strength core it allows the use of finer threads 

and needles without compromising the strength of the thread compared to staple spun threads. Smaller holes in your

jacket and pants is much better!


                                         

301 LOCKSTITCH

HEMS | HOOD SEAMS | POCKET COLLARS | GENERAL ASSEMBLY

The multiple thread lock stitch in both single and twin combinations resists threads

unravelling, has a much higher abrasion resistance and creates one of the tightest

most secure seams possible.

 

                                          

 

401 CHAINSTITCH FLAT FELLED SEAM

PANT CROTCHES | INNER LEG SEAMS

Areas of high demand on seam integrity is where you'll find the 401. This seam

type creates a super-strong union between fabric layers by using multiple threads

and folded layers to construct a super strong yet flexible seam hence it's wide-spread

use in traditional work wear and denim wear. 

 

                                          


401 CHAINSTITCH FLAT FELLED SEAM

This is a multiple thread combination comprising of the 401 Chainstitch and a 504

overedge stitch. the Blind-5 is 30% stronger than standard stitches. Along with added

strength, the Blind-5 ensures there is no exposed thread that can potentially wear.
