Thai Acrylic Fiber (TAF), a leading manufacturer of acrylic fibers and owner of the Birlacril brand, has launched a unique solution to the challenges of strict environmental laws imposed on the textile industry with its Radianza acrylic fiber.
Yarns made with Radianza, the gel-dyed fiber, have replaced the conventional yarn and fabric dyeing in many applications that use more water and discharge harmful chemicals.
Changsuo textiles, one of the most famous core spun yarn spinners in China, is manufacturing these yarns with Radianza fiber for many end-applications ranging from sweaters to blankets under their brand name Cologeal.
Radianza fiber is a ready-to-use, gel dyed fiber and comes in a range of vibrant colors. The fiber has excellent color fastness, consistency, and shade uniformity. It can be blended with all kinds of fibers or can be spun as 100 percent.
The most important benefit of Radianza fiber is that it provides one of the innovative solutions to address the increasing threat to the environment and natural resources at various stages in textile processing.
Satyaki Ghosh, CEO of TAF, said, “Availability of safe drinking water is reducing globally. In developing nations, the search for safe drinking water can be a daily struggle.”
He also said, “Millions of people are getting affected every year from preventable diseases caused by the lack of access to clean water. The best gift we can give to the future generations is clean water free from pollution.”
Echoing the thought, Tang, owner of Changsuo Textiles, said that today their industry is faced with the challenges of making sustainable products that are of the highest quality. Using Radianza fiber in their product range has been very valuable for them to address both these challenges and their customers are also liking the product very much.
A fabric made from yarns with 100 percent Radianza fibers would require only 20 percent of water/energy as compared to conventional dyeing. Moreover, as there is no need of dyeing at a yarn or fabric stage, there is also no discharge of dyestuff unlike in conventional dyeing where dye stull losses lead to polluted effluent.
