Beaulieu Yarns introduces sustainable yarns for sustainable residential, contract and automotive carpets at Domotex 2019
Launched at Domotex, the new Resilya yarn family answers the need for a new level of durability, quality and originality in design from the contract market. The yarns combine the industry’s highest resilience with unique colour and design capabilities for all kinds of contract carpet constructions. The extra level of resilience supports the attainment of highest classification for particularly durable, and therefore longer-life, trend setting contract carpet for the heaviest applications. These include commercial offices, hospitality and leisure, and education and healthcare premises.
Efficient CO₂ emission reduction through Eqobalance PA6 sustainable yarns. These EqoBalance PA6 yarns follow the biomass balance approach, which ensures that at the very start of the supply chain, natural renewable raw materials replace fossil resources in the production of polymers processed into yarns. These yarns offer the carpet manufacturer an important advantage, as their manufacturing process does not need to alter. Eqobalance are PA yarns and so fully recyclable and fit circular economy for the high-end contracts and premium automotive segments. By choosing these yarns, which benefit from a new and specific Environment Product Declaration (EPD) statement, carpet manufacturers can contribute to a sustainable future through a reduction of emissions of up to 75% of CO₂ eq/kg compared to fossil based yarns.
Enlarged composition possibilities with Softitude yarns. Beaulieu Yarns unveils a new broader range of the uniquely soft and durable Softitude Solution Dyed Nylon (SDN) yarns for residential and hospitality broadloom carpets. The extended portfolio enables carpet manufacturers to achieve comfort, luxury and an inviting warm touch, without compromising on long-term wear and tear resistance. The range offers extensive unique colour possibilities through uni- or multi-colour yarns and various luster-levels from bright to semi-bright to dull. Yarns are available in 2400, 2800, and 3200 dTex for looppile and cutpile carpets.
Emmanuel Colchen, Global Sales Director Yarns, comments, “Beaulieu Yarns’ intimate, custom-driven support gives us a deep understanding of the challenges faced by carpet manufacturers. Sustainability is a significant consideration, and we look to encourage our customers’ efforts by helping them to create more durable carpets and to reduce their CO₂ emissions. At the same time, we put a lot of emphasis on working together to expand their design creativity through our in-house masterbatch colour experts. We are excited to be introducing products to the markets that unite these priorities, to lower the carbon footprint of trend-focused finished carpets.”News
