RadiciGroup to focus on speciality yarns at Heimtextil

Jan '16
At this year's Heimtextil, RadiciGroup is focusing on its lines of flame retardant and bacteriostatic yarns, solution-dyed yarns, both conventional and made of recycled materials.

“These yarns include Radyarn, Starlight and Antimony free polyester yarn ranges developed by its various subsidiaries like Noyfil SpA and Noyfil SA,” a Radicci press release said.

“The two manufacturers rank among the leading European producers of polyester yarn and boast a long tradition of excellence in the field,” the press release added.

Sustainability will also be a focus as an active process involving people, methodology, continual improvement and concrete action.

These include, the development of products using renewable source energy, recycled raw materials, biopolymers obtained from renewable natural materials and dyeing processes that help save precious resources.

According to Radicci, Solution dyeing is a one-step process in which colour masterbatch is added to the polymer melt during the extrusion phase of fibre manufacturing and becomes an integral part of the polymer matrix.

“This technology allows for considerable savings of water and energy compared to traditional post-dyeing and finishing methods,” the company explained.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies done by RadiciGroup have demonstrated that solution-dyed yarn has a smaller environmental footprint compared to conventional post-dyed yarn.

The R-Radyarn and R-Starlight yarns are made from post-consumer recycled PET bottles and a result of a multi-stage process, from post-consumer bottle collection to reprocessing and yarn production.

These two yarns valorise waste, cut down on plastics disposal, raise awareness of separate waste collection, decrease energy consumption and avoid excessive use of water when solution dyed. (AR)
