Entertainment. Sash Cord is the preferred tie down product in the entertainment industry, used by virtually every department. Grips, Gaffers, Props, Teamsters and Production Assistants alike use sash cord in everyday life on set. From general tie downs to rigging, sash cord has always been the number one “on set must have”.
Windows. Traditional sash windows—often found in older homes—require the use of a sash cord for proper operation. Old cords often need to be replaced after many decades have passed.
General tie down. The same characteristics that make sash cord so good in windows also allow them to be used for many tie down jobs where secure knots are needed.
Clothesline. If you hang your clothes to dry, sash cord would make an excellent clothesline. This product offers plenty of strength to hold everything securely.
Benefits of Sash Cord
Multi-layer design. With the use of a solid braided cotton cover over a synthetic core, SEACO sash cord is able to remain soft in the hand and pliable while delivering surprising strength.
Durable. Our cotton and synthetic core design also offers outstanding durability over the life of the product.
Lightweight. For a product that offers this much strength, sash cord is very lightweight.
Upholstery Projects. This is the main purpose of this product, as it can be used to add a quality finishing element to things like pillowcases, drapes, furniture coverings, and more.
Crafting. Instead of using piping cord as a backup component of a bigger project, you can make it the star of the show in other craft projects.
Manufacturing Operations. Aside from home use, piping cord can also be used in a commercial setting when manufacturing a range of textile products.
Benefits of Piping Filler Cord
Durable. Adding piping filler cord to your creations is a great way to help them hold their shape—even after years of use.
Professional Appearance. The use of piping can make all the difference between something that looks ‘homemade’ and a high-end finished product. Once you start incorporating piping cord into your designs, you’ll wonder how you ever went without it.
Washable. When making items that will need to be washed, adding piping cord will help to improve durability so those items can get through the wash cycle in good condition.
Camping & Outdoor Adventure. If you love to spend time outdoors, paracord is a great supply to stock up on before you head out. Whether you hunt, fish, hike, camp, or anything else outside, paracord has plenty of utility. A must have for outdoor survival.
Creative Projects. Paracord can be incorporated in a variety of craft projects. From bracelets to creative artwork, Paracord is a proven winner. The wide range of color options available at SEACO makes it easy to find a shade that suits your specific needs.
Tie-Down. This product is surprisingly strong for its size, which is why it is trusted for something as important as parachutes. Keep paracord on hand for all of your general-purpose tie-down needs. A “must have” for hunters and backpackers.
Benefits of Paracord
Elasticity. There is some elasticity to paracord, so it will give enough to make it useful for various tasks and projects where that is necessary. If you need a strong but flexible cord product, paracord is the right choice.
Long-Lasting Durability. You can use our paracord over and over again without noticing a loss of performance.
Strength. Paracord is very strong. The paracord available at SEACO has a strength rating of 550 lbs.
Comfortable to Work With. This product has a smooth feel in the hand. Working with paracord all day long won’t be a painful experience as it might be with other, rougher cord products.
Marine tasks. One of the notable features of manila rope is its resistance to damage from saltwater. If you own or operate a boat in a marine environment, this rope will be a welcome addition to your gear box.
Exercise. Thicker manila ropes are frequently used for exercise routines that call for rope. That’s because this rope can absorb perspiration to help ensure a reliable grip. If you’ve ever seen a fitness trainer working with a client in a gym while swinging ropes around, manila was likely the material the rope was made with.
Establish Boundaries. Given how well this rope stands up to outdoor elements and how easy it is to work with, it’s a natural fit for blocking off areas.
Exterior Décor. With its rugged, natural look, manila rope is a great option for many exterior décor projects. Note that we only recommend using this rope for outdoor projects. It is an oiled product not intended for interior use.
Utility Rope. Manila is an excellent option for a general utility rope, thanks to its high strength, rugged durability, flexibility, and ability to stand up to marine environments.
Manila Rope Benefits
Strong. When it comes to strength, manila is king. This is the strongest product of all natural fiber ropes.
Flexible. This rope’s flexibility makes it easy to handle and tie into knots.
Non-Snapping. When manila rope is put under heavy stress and is ready to break—and ALL rope breaks—it won’t snap like synthetic ropes. Instead, it will simply fray apart, making it less dangerous under harsh use.
Contraction When Wet. If you want your knots to tighten up and become extremely durable when set, manila rope is perfect. The rope will contract when it gets wet, meaning any knots that have been tied will stiffen dramatically.
Rugged Look. When you picture a classic rope, your mind likely brings up an image of something like manila rope. If you care about the aesthetics of your project, this rope won’t let you down.
Chalk line. For construction projects, cotton cable cord can be used as a chalk line to mark out straight lines on various surfaces.
Mason line. Another construction application for this product is using it as mason line. A level line placed before laying bricks can help ensure the finished wall is perfectly straight.
Crafting. Many crafters love using cotton cord, because it can be tied easily and offers a soft, natural look that fits nicely with a variety of projects. This is the preferred product for macramé.
Benefits of Cotton Cable Cord
Durable. The blend of cotton and polyester provides you with excellent durability when using this cord.
Able to snap. This is an important feature when using cotton cord as a chalk line. To put down a chalk line, you need a cord or twine that is tight enough to snap down when you pull it up. Our cotton cable cord will work nicely for that purpose.
Comfortable to work with. If you are spending much of your day working with this product, you’ll be happy to know that it will be comfortable on your hands as the hours go by.
Agricultural jobs. As a natural fiber, sisal twine is an easy choice for many outdoor jobs, such as gardening tasks, tying up branches and vines, and more.
Tie down. Sisal twine brings impressive strength for its size, making it a good pick for general tie down tasks.
Cooking. That’s right. You can even use this product in the kitchen, where it can help you tie up a protein like turkey or chicken before it is cooked.
Benefits of Sisal Twine
Biodegradable. Do a favor for the environment by opting for this twine, which is biodegradable and won’t harm nature if it is left out in the elements. This is one of the key benefits that makes sisal great for agricultural work.
Ties well. The pliable nature and texture of sisal twine helps it hold together in a knot when you tie it up.
Surprising strength. You will have a lot of strength to work with when using sisal twine. This is a nice advantage when you need a strong line that doesn’t add a lot of bulk.
Sewing manmade fibers. If you are working with an artificial fabric as opposed to something natural like cotton, polyester thread is a great choice.
Quilting projects. The strength of polyester sewing thread makes it a popular option for quilts.
Stretch knit projects. When designing and creating garments with stretch knit materials, turn to polyester thread for the right performance characteristics.
Benefits of Polyester Sewing Thread
Resists sun damage. Items that are going to spend a lot of time outside will face harsh UV rays from the sun. Polyester thread can resist damage from those rays, keeping the item in good condition for longer.
Mildew fighter. In addition to resisting sun damage, polyester thread can also fight back against the growth of mildew. Again, this is a benefit for outdoor use, where a damp environment may be present.
Plenty of give. For an item that you want to be able to bend and stretch freely, this thread will offer the needed flexibility.
Craft projects. Poly twine is easy to work with and can quickly be tied into knots for various craft projects and other DIY activities.
Recycling. Materials set for recycling often need to be bundled together. Our polypropylene twine is strong enough for this task.
Gardening. If you love to garden or you do landscaping work as a profession, having a spool of this twine on hand can help you move and tie up plants, bundle branches and even tie up your Christmas tree.
Benefits of Poly Twine
Pliable. Perhaps the biggest benefit of this product is how easily it can be formed into knots. Some twine materials make it hard to tie strong knots, but there will be no such trouble here.
Strong for its size. Though this twine is thin, it also delivers impressive strength to handle jobs that might be too big for twine made from other materials.
Feels good. Another problem with other twine materials is the way they can wear down your hands after a long day of work. This polypropylene material is comfortable on your hands and will allow you to work for hours.
Package wrapping. One common use for poly ribbon is as a finishing touch for gift packages that have been wrapped. The ribbon can help to hold the package together while adding an attractive visual element.
Floral design. If you enjoy creating beautiful bouquets of flowers—whether as a hobby or a profession—poly ribbon is a good supply to keep on hand.
General decorating. Beyond gifts and flowers, poly ribbon can be put to work in many other decorating applications.
Benefits of Poly Ribbon
A shiny finish. This is what draws so many people to use poly ribbon over other options. The shiny appearance is visually attractive and can help a gift or product stand out from the crowd.
Easy to use. Poly ribbon is extremely flexible and easy to work with. You should have no trouble tying it into a knot or bow.
Lightweight & strong. This product has enough strength to help hold a package together, but it also easy enough to break apart when opening a present or unwrapping a product.
Create beautiful craft projects. The finished, smooth look of polished cotton twine can be a great addition to a range of craft projects.
Improve commercial products. If you sell small gifts or other products, this twine can be used to tie up the packages for a hand-crafted, custom look.
Cooking uses. Twine is frequently used to aid in the cooking process, typically by tying up pieces of meat into a shape that can be cooked evenly. Our polished twine is food grade polished.
Benefits of Polished Cotton Twine
Improved performance. The polished finish holds the twine together beautifully while in use.
Cleaner cuts. Some twines can fray badly on the ends after they have been cut. This is not an issue with polished cotton twine, making it great for applications where small sections will be cut off frequently.
Natural look. Some other types of twine look artificial and can take away from the appearance of products or projects. The natural appeal of cotton twine is a nice fit for many tasks.
Strong. Despite its small diameter, our polished twine is quite strong for its size.
