Radifloor Solid: polyamide in 112 colour shades for carpet tiles and fitted carpet
“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.”
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.
