Note: Due to the sensibility of para-aramide against UV-light we highly recommend the storage of the thread within the black plastic bags. A longer exposure to UV-light causes yellowing and reduction of tensile strength. Due to this fact we advise against using this product for exterior applications.

The automatic thread cutter should be switched off as cutting devices can quickly become blunt.​
