A range of colours meeting the market’s requirements for looks, performance and sustainability: the new Radifloor Solid BCF PA 6 1300 F68 colour chart from RadiciGroup Performance Yarn makes its debut in the contract and residential flooring market with an array of high-quality yarns that reduce the environmental impact of the end product. The colour chart encompasses 112 of the colours most widely used by interior designers, with a predominance of beige and grey shades, together with bright colours in many tones. The yarns belonging to this family have two traits in common: they are all solution-dyed – thus aimed at saving water – and all branded RadiciGroup, a name that stands for the top of its category. These sophisticated products boast still another new feature: an accurate sampling service for customers.

“With this new colour chart, we wanted to sum up all our experience acquired during the last few years,” said Arturo Andreoni, marketing and R&D director of RadiciGroup Performance Yarn, “and make high performance polyamide yarn available to the contract and residential sectors. Our yarns stand for sustainability, in that they are not only solution-dyed but also produced in plants certified to ISO 14001:2015, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 50001:2011 and OHSAS 18001:2007 – Environmental, Quality, Energy and Health & Safety Management Systems, respectively. All this goes to say how sustainability is more than a business strategy promoted by management: it is a well-organized approach shared by all the people working at our plants.”

Water savings
The production process for solution-dyed yarns ensures significant water savings, because the dyes are added upstream during the extrusion phase and become incorporated into the polymer matrix. This technology does away with the need for vat dyeing the carpet downstream, ensures greater colourfastness over time, and overall, gives fabric made with these yarns longer lasting resistance. Besides fitted carpet, Radifloor Solid BCF PA 6 1300 F68 yarn is ideal for the manufacture of standard 50x50-cm tufted carpet tiles.
