Frequently asked questions:

Why doesn’t QTN offer QTC Contrast Thread in polyester?
Some polyester threads are made with dyes that can migrate into vinyl and leather.

What is migration?
Migration is a chemical reaction between the types of dyes used in the thread and certain vinyl and leather.
Note: Although the thread and vinyl are manufactured correctly, the dye transfer may still occur.
*Any dyed polyester product should be thoroughly tested for color migration using an appropriate dye migration test.

Is there any way to fix a color transfer?
Once the migration of color occurs, it is permanent. It cannot be cleaned or repaired.

Just a reminder about contrast stitching
When using polyester thread, only a solution-dyed product inherently has no dye transfer or color migration risk. *QTN offers QTC Hercules Brand polyester, available in solution-dyed Black and White, sizes T270 and T210.

This product is not recommended for outdoor use.
