Insectiban Thread with anti-bed bug treatment

August 1st, 2013 / By: / Advanced Textiles, New Products, Upholstery

Coats has developed threads and zips with an anti-bed bug treatment based on naturally occurring durable plant extract and oils. The treatment is harmless to humans and pets but fatal to bed bugs after extended exposure (about four days). As bed bugs use the seams and tape edges of mattresses and other furniture to hide and lay their eggs, a treated sewing thread and/or zip will help to control an infestation, even if the fabric and other elements of the bedding have not been treated. Recommended for use in mattresses and upholstered furniture in domestic households, hotels, hostels, hospitals, care homes, military barracks and prisons.
