Madeira USA, Laconia, N.H., has produced a new color card representing its flame-resistant embroidery thread, Fire Fighter.

The card features windings of all 24 available colors, which are ideal for industries such as fire and safety, motor sports, aeronautics, transportation, public buildings, and even children’s and infant wear, according to the company.

“We listened to our customers in the contract field who cater to sectors known for safety measures, like energy and transportation, and sports like car racing,” says Madeira USA President Shirley Clark. “And as they became more and more regulated for safety, Madeira was able to respond by supplying our fire-resistant Fire Fighter embroidery thread in larger put-ups.”

Fire Fighter features a high resistance to heat and releases less toxic vapors compared to polyester threads, according to the company.
