Radici yarns r-Radyarn & r-Starlight certified UNI 11505

RadiciGroup companies Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA have chosen the highest level of transparency by adopting the UNI 11505:2013 standard, for measuring and declaring recycled material content of their r-Radyarn and r-Starlight yarns, made from post-consumer recycled polyester bottles.

The UNI 11505 standard, which became effective in September 2013, concerns yarn and man-made fibres manufactured with secondary raw materials obtained from the processing of recycled materials through a mechanical or chemical transformation process.

More specifically, the standard sets out the characteristics to be disclosed in the manufacturer’s product declaration concerning recycled material content, as well as the information to be reported on product labels in addition to the product composition information required by law.

The UNI standard also specifies the management and monitoring requirements an organization must meet in order to comply with said standard.

Now that r-Radyarn and r-Starlight yarns are certified to UNI 11505 standard, Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA will now indicate the exact percentage of recycled polymer together with the percentage of additives.

“The value added for our customers is the greater transparency in communication afforded by this certification process,” said Maurizio Vedovati, General Manager of Noyfil SpA.

“By disclosing the precise content of recycled materials, we are giving our customers all the data they need to calculate the exact composition of their own finished products and provide the end user with more information directly on the labels”, he added.

Vedovati continued, “This new standard has contributed, and will continue to contribute to reducing the confusion in the market by increasing the credibility of products made from recycled materials.” (AR)
