RadiciGroup presents eco-yarns as part of FR Total Care initiative at Heimtextil

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-01-13 11:00:00 – FRANKFURT

RadiciGroup, based in Gandino, Italy, is a large Italian corporation active in several industries like textiles, chemicals and plastic with factories in Italy, Germany and Romania will partake in Heimtextil, the world’s biggest trade fair dedicated to home and contract textiles sector.

RadiciGroup will showcase its Radyarn and Starlight yarn ranges developed by RadiciGroup companies Noyfil SpA and Noyfil SA at this week's Heimtextil in Germany. The two yarns are being presented as part of the FR Total Care initiative, a collaborative project involving a group of manufacturers in the synthetic fibres industry – including Noyfil SA and Noyfil SpA.

The solution-dyed yarns are made from post-consumer recycled PET bottles using an antimony-free process. Solution dyeing is a one-step process in which colour master batch is added to the polymer melt during the extrusion phase of fibre manufacturing and becomes an integral part of the polymer matrix. The technology allows for savings of water and energy compared to traditional post-dyeing and finishing methods.

In Frankfurt, RadiciGroup focuses once again on sustainability as an active process involving people, methodology, continual improvement and concrete action, such as the development of products using renewable source energy, recycled raw materials, biopolymers obtained from renewable natural materials, and dyeing processes (e.g., solution dyeing) that help save precious resources like water and energy.

Two of the above sustainability features are star attractions at Heimtextil: solution dyeing and post-consumer recycled PET bottles used to make low environmental impact yarn.

Heimtextil, the world leading exhibition is held in Frankfurt and will run from 12 to 15 January 2016.
