RadiciGroup r-Radyarn is a low environmental impact product made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles. It is an eco-sustainable yarn ideal for applications in the technical sportswear and medical sectors.

What is more, r-Radyarn is a safe product, the result of a multi-stage process – from post-consumer bottle collection to reprocessing and yarn production – all taking place in Europe and monitored at every step.

“There is so much talk about the green revolution and it affects us directly,” said Roberto Parenzan, RadiciGroup Polyester Area R&D manager.

“Sustainability concerns so many of our target sectors, from technical sportswear to intimatewear and automotive, to mention just a few. Now the players involved must set forth goals that are clearer, more concrete and more tangible.”

“The r-Radyarn range,” Mr. Parenzan continued, “represents a concrete example of our commitment to increasing the lifecycle of raw materials, reducing energy consumption and lowering CO2 emissions, as well as safeguarding the health and safety of people.

“The latter issue has recently been the centre of attention of the world of sport, football, in particular. Indeed, during the last few weeks, the European Consumers’ Organization (BEUC), after an investigation, warned against the presence of toxic substances, dangerous to the health, in the shirts of some teams participating in the 2012 European Football Championship.

“The results of the investigation, once again in the strongest terms, stressed the need for sportswear producers to have reliable suppliers. Our Group has developed the r-Radyarn range so it can offer its customers sustainability, high performance and safety.

“In creating Radyarn we have turned plastic waste into a resource and a new raw material that finds its application in sportswear with a smaller measurable environmental footprint, maximum comfort, freshness, breathability, colour solidity and thermoregulation. Sustainable, high-performance garments that are, above all, safe. Our Oeko-Tex certified yarns are free of heavy metals and other toxic substances and can be confidently used to manufacture garments with guaranteed safety.”

The r-Radyarn range is available in a variety of counts, colours and lustres, and in three different versions: textured, interlaced and taslan (POY and drawn versions of this eco-compatible yarn are sold under the r-Starlight brand name).

r-Radyarn comes in several cross-sections: standard (round and trilobal) and special (multi-lobal, channel and hollow trilobal). For higher environmental sustainability, these yarns are also available in solution-dyed versions. Besides utilizing recycled raw materials, solution-dyed r-Radyarn ensures a considerable savings in both water and energy consumption, in addition to lower waste treatment costs.
