RadiciGroup, one of the world’s leading producers of a wide range of chemical intermediates, polyamide polymers, engineering plastics, synthetic fibres, and nonwovens, will show its top products and latest solutions for technical applications at Techtextil 2017, a leading technical textiles expo in Germany, from May 9 to12, 2017, in hall 4.1, stand C68.

Polyamide yarn and staple yarn, polyester continuous filament and polypropylene nonwovens are the leading players at the Techtextil RadiciGroup stand. Particular prominence is given to the sustainable versions of these products and to improved technical characteristics, which have been made possible by production plants recently put into, or soon to be, in operation to widen the product range. At its Selbitz site in Germany, RadiciGroup has invested €3 million to develop and produce both household and industrial products for the abrasive sector, as well as felts for the industrial sector (dorix teck). In Italy, a bico technology production line for the manufacture of spunbond is due to become operational by the end of 2017 and will increase total production capacity by 50 per cent.

The automotive sector is one of the main target markets for RadiciGroup technical textiles. The Group product ranges include Raditeck Double Six (hightenacity PA 66 yarn, mostly used for car airbags and tyre reinforcement), and Radifloor Automotive (solution-dyed PA 66 yarn for car carpeting and polyester yarn for automotive interior applications). This broad yarn offering is complemented by numerous types of engineering plastics from the RadiciGroup Performance Plastics Business Area, ideal for the manufacture of structural plastic cabin components with high mechanical performance specifications.

RadiciGroup’s strengths also include being the number two European polyester producer, recognised for the quality, innovation, and sustainability of its yarns: over 24,000 tons of product and about €70 million in sales revenue. (GK)
