The RadiciGroup has added two new products - Dyna and Fine – to its Raditeck range of high-tenacity PA66 yarns.
Developed for applications in the technical textiles sector, Raditeck Fine and Raditeck Dyna polyamide 66 yarns are said to ensure excellent fabric performance with improved tear and abrasion resistance with superior light stability, even in critical applications. RadiciGroup says the new products are ideal for the manufacture of sails, parachutes, hot-air balloons, as well as sportswear, workwear, footwear, backpacks and suitcases.
RadiciGroup has added new fine and medium counts to its product portfolio of high-tenacity PA66 yarns, which already includes traditional counts: 33/10 dtex, 55/13 dtex and 78/34 dtex FLAT yarn and 580/140 dtex and 1100/280 dtex TASLAN yarn.
"The market response to these new products has been really positive," said Filippo Bona of Radici Yarn R&D.
“The development and marketing of the Raditeck Fine versions began about two years ago. We started off by proposing a range of fine counts, such as 33/10 dtex, for applications in the sportswear segment and then, quite recently actually, introduced new high-tenacity 180/68 dtex and 360/136 dtex TASLAN yarn for applications in the technical, sportswear and workwear sectors. These yarns were designed to guarantee resistance, total reliability, safety and quality – to meet market demand for materials providing better performance."
"RadiciGroup’s competence and experience, as well as the vertical integration of its nylon production chain, has played a fundamental role in the development of these products," Mr. Bona continued.
"Inside our Group, we have the needed raw material, polyamide 66, which comes from out chemical production plant in Novara, Italy, and the necessary yarn processing technology. Also of central importance has been our close collaboration with customers. In effect, our customers are the starting point of every innovation at RadiciGroup."
The vertically integrated polyamide production chain is said to give RadiciGroup the advantage of in-depth knowledge of final applications, production processes and finishing techniques.
In addition, the Group has complete control over its raw materials through the know-how and expertise of Radici Chimica SpA, the Group chemicals production centre where the polyamide 66 polymer is produced. The company says, all this puts RadiciGroup in a position to design and develop yarns, such as Raditeck, that can meet the most stringent application requirements.
RadiciGroup is a leading European manufacturer of a vast range of products, from polyamide 6 and 66 yarn to polyester yarn, high-tenacity BCF, polyamide and polyolefin yarn for artificial grass, and acrylic yarn, staple fibre, tow and top. The company’s products are used for applications in the apparel (technical wear, intimate wear, sportswear), furnishings, consumer goods, automotive, medical, industrial, nautical, sports and leisure sectors.
