RadiciGroup, a producer of chemical intermediates, polyamide polymers, engineering plastics, synthetic fibres, and nonwovens, displayed its wide range of latest textile flooring solutions for contract and residential applications at Domotex 2018, the international expo for floor coverings, which was held from January 12 to 15, 2018.
The company showed widest ranges of floor covering products: from polyamide 6 and bio polyamide 6.6 carpet yarn to polyethylene and polypropylene artificial grass yarn, ideal for synthetic turf used to enhance both public and private spaces.
The Radifloor BCF yarn line – manufactured and processed at the RadiciGroup plants in Casnigo, Italy, and Podborany, Czech Republic – boasts an ever increasing variety of new products. The RadiciGroup synthetic fibres business area presented its new PA 6.6 yarn made of polymers with different dye affinities (deep and basic), making it possible to manufacture supersoft carpet with chromatic effects (not just a single colour, as has been the case up to now). Furthermore, two new kinds of yarn have been added to the range: superbright PA 6.6 1350 F 68 BRIGHT yarn, sporting high performance characteristics and targeted at the printed entrance mat segment, and PA 6.6 Dtex 1100F256 Bright Heat Set SUPERBA yarn, featuring a soft hand and a unique design with iridescent effects. Upstream vertical integration allows RadiciGroup to deliver yarns that can make the dying process easier for customers, meet the varied requirements set by designers and ensure more resistant and longer-lasting flooring. Thanks to the improvements made to Power Heat Set technology, RadiciGroup’s portfolio for the residential segment comprises a large selection of PA 6 frisé yarns with various deep and cationic dye affinity combinations, for a luxurious effect that is a good value.
At the Domotex 2018 fair, RadiciGroup comfort fibres business area displayed its entire PA 6 and PA 6.6 product range, under the Radilon, dorix, and dorix tech brand names. This year, the range also comprises a line of bio polyamides (polyamides obtained from renewable source materials). The Group’s decision to invest in sustainability at all production chain levels has been implemented in this business area through the use of renewable source materials for the manufacture of products, combining improved technical characteristics (mechanical and chemical resistance, light weight, dimensional stability, etc.) with reduced environmental impact.
At the fair, RadiciGroup also exhibited products from its extrusion yarn business area: polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyamide yarns for the manufacture of artificial grass. Nowadays, synthetic turf is widely used for both public and private green areas, particularly spaces for recreation and relaxation. MY (Multi-Yarn) Radigreen – the brand name for yarns specifically developed for the manufacture of synthetic turf to be installed in residential, household and commercial areas – stands for creativity, innovation, and customisation.
