RadiciGroup, a producer of a vast range of polyester yarns returns to Heimtextil in Frankfurt with the FR and Bacteriostatic versions of its Radyarn and Starlight yarns.

Within the context of its FR portfolio, RadiciGroup is introducing polyester continuous filament yarn featuring intrinsic flame-retardant properties.

“Radyarn and Starlight Flame Retardant yarns are available in solution-dyed, antibacterial and UV-stabilised versions,” Radici informs.

According to Radici, they are ideal for applications in the indoor and outdoor textile furnishings and contract sectors, because they add high performance, safety and functionality to fabrics.

“These yarns also feature softness, breathability, colour fastness and high quality,” it adds.

FR Total Care is a project founded through the partnership of synthetic fibre industry leaders, in which RadiciGroup is represented by its companies, Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA.

Radici is able to provide full-spectrum service, including support throughout the fabric design, processing, testing and certification stages.

“These flame retardant products continue to generate positive feedback from the market,” says Andrea Marcassoli, of Noyfil SpA Technical Assistance.

“We worked hard on optimising products through analysis and testing, in order to provide customers with yarns for flame-retardant fabrics, compliant with the strictest laws, standards and regulations,” he too adds.

“In 2014, growth in these flame-retardant products has continued its upward trend,” said Maurizio Vedovati, general manager of Noyfil SpA.

“This is particularly the case for FR versions stabilised against the effects of outdoor exposure, such as our FR UV-stabilized Radyarn and Starlight yarns,” he noted.

For 2015, Radici has a good growth outlook of over 20 per cent for its flame-retardant products, both in the solution-dyed variants and the dyed yarn for traditional applications in the furnishings segment.

For this year, it also foresees 15 per cent growth for the microfibre FR and solution-dyed bacteriostatic yarn lines.”

Radyarn and Starlight Bacteriostatic polyester yarn is manufactured with a nanostructured silver additive incorporated into the fibre during the extrusion stage before spinning.

This endows the yarn with bacteriostatic properties that inhibit the proliferation of bacteria on the fabric.

Radyarn and Starlight Bacteriostatic yarns ensure complete production versatility and product range is available in all solution-dyed PET versions in combination with flame retardant FR and FR-UV-stabilised. (AR)
