Radici launches new yarn made from Ingeo PLA biopolymer

RadiciGroup officially introduces CornLeaf, one of the Group's latest green products made from Ingeo polylactic acid (PLA) polymer, an innovative 100% natural material produced from renewable vegetable resources.

The strong points of this material are:

Eco-sustainable biopolymer: CornLeaf is a 100% biodegradable solution-dyed continuous yarn, manufactured using raw materials and production processes that fully meet eco-sustainability requirements, such as the lowering of CO2 emissions and reduced water and energy consumption.

Solution dyeing: Solution dyeing technology integrated into the spinning process allows for producing CornLeaf with less water and energy consumption compared to more traditional dyeing and finishing processes. This product is available in a wide range of highly lightfast wash-resistant colours.

Bacteriostaticity: Antimicrobial functionality is achieved by incorporating a special silver-based micro-compound into the yarn as an antimicrobial agent. CornLeaf's bacteriostatic functionality is ISO 20743:2007-certified and is obtained using HEIQ materials. Laboratory tests have proved that the solution dyeing process and antimicrobial functionality do not compromise the compostability of the Ingeo™ PLA biopolymer.

CornLeaf yarn combines the advantages of natural and synthetic fibres:

Lightness: specific weight less than that of natural fibres.

Tenacity: comparable to synthetic fibres.

Comfort: Greater hygroscopicity compared to synthetic yarns and faster drying than natural fibres.

UV-resistance: excellent UV-resistance because UV rays are dissipated.

Safety: Low flammability (LOI > 26%); does not emit toxic fumes.

Solution dyeing technology and the use of special raw materials make CornLeaf a yarn that meets the ever growing market demand for environmentally friendly products. CornLeaf yarn is ideal for intimatewear, furnishings and consumer goods.
