According to www.textileschool.com:
“Polyester Thread is made from 100% polyester and is suitable for most of sewing process. It provides strength and elasticity for sewing on fabrics made of synthetic, natural or blended fibers. All purpose polyester thread is great for knit, stretch and permanent press fabrics because of its stretch and recovery and its non-shrinkage. Most polyester threads have wax or silicone finish helping them slip through the fabric with a minimum of friction.
“Bonded: Treating continuous filament nylon or polyester with a special resin that encapsulates the filaments is called bonding. The result is a tough smooth coating that ads significantly to the thread’s ability to resist abrasion and greatly enhances ply security.”
