The RadiciGroup Synthetic Fibres & NonWovens Business Area is participating in the 2017 edition of Domotex, the international trade fair dedicated to textile flooring, this week, by presenting its latest innovations for the world of flooring.

The RadiciGroup stand allows visitors to get up close to the ideal yarns for producing textile flooring for homes, offices, hotels, ships and cars and the new offerings for the artificial turf used in sporting and decorative applications.

With over 50 years of experience in the production of synthetic fibres and currently the only supplier for the contract sector in Europe to be integrated in the nylon 6.6 production chain, RadiciGroup provides final products for high-end textile, furnishings and automotive markets.

The company’s product portfolio optimisation and maximum customisation for each specific application are the fundamentals of the RadiciGroup strategy, aiming to meet the most current aesthetic trends of the market, like softness, durability and colour flexibility.

Products on display

The exhibition of products begins with the nylon 6- and 6.6-based Radifloor BCF yarns, in the raw or solution dyed, twisted, heat-set and air-entangled versions for the production of carpets and rugs. These are innovative products – produced in the Casnigo (Italy) and Podborany (Czech Republic) facilities belonging to the Performance Yarn Business Area – also available in the 6.10 version from renewable sources, able to ensure high performance and intended for the home, residential, contract and automotive sectors, interior upholstery and furniture accessory coverings.

Other brands on display at the stand – made available by the Comfort Fibres Business Area through the production units of Villa d’Ogna (Italy) and Selbitz (Germany) – are the Radilon PA6-and PA6.6-based polyamide yarn and staple fibre and Dorix polyamide 6 staple fibre, used in the contract textile flooring sector, in particular, for the production of needle punched carpets or tiles.

The 6.10 version is also available for these products, made from polyamide of which 64% is naturally sourced (sebacic acid derived from the castor oil plant) and 36% is from petroleum-based hexamethylenediamine, which is said to ensure sustainability and performance at the same time, according to the manufacturer.

Yarns for artificial turf

Finally, at Domotex RadiciGroup is also exhibiting its polyethylene, polypropylene and polyamide yarns for artificial turf, produced by the Extrusion Yarn Business Area, an “upstream” supplier for producers of sports fields (football and hockey pitches, tennis courts, golf greens) or decorative applications (gardens, children’s play areas).

There are many products in the range, depending on the type of application: MY Radigreen yarns, for example, are an all-in-one combination of straight and textured monofilament, which are designed to offer maximum creativity, production innovation and flexibility, customisation and safety.
