RadiciGroup Develops Antimicrobial Carpet Yarn

Italy-based RadiciGroup has developed a new antimicrobial nylon 6 carpet yarn that incorporates Spartanburg-based Milliken Chemical's AlphaSan® silver-based antimicrobial technology to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and other organisms that cause odor, deterioration and discoloration of various products.



"We observed an increase in demand for carpets and rugs in the Scandinavian countries and Northern Europe, where patented antimicrobial fibers are now offered," said Federico Previtali, sales director. The company expects to serve sectors such as hospitals, kindergartens and offices. Previtali said the company also is considering extending its antimicrobial carpet offering into the automotive market.
