Radici® Fully Drawn Polyester Yarns - Developed by Radici and exclusively distributed in North America by ICF Mercantile, LLC, Radici® Fully Drawn Polyester Yarns are a collection of high quality dyeable filament yarns, available in bright and semi-dull versions, developed for the medical and industrial markets.
  Radici® Polyester SY - Developed by Radici and exclusively distributed in North America by ICF Mercantile, LLC, Radici® Polyester SY yarns are a collection of bright and semi-dull, filament dyeable yarns, available in 20 to 1000 denier versions, and the yarns have textile characteristics that impart softness and wearability to the fabrics. The yarns' bright effect is characterized by a special luster for all colour shades. The yarns are targeted towards the apparel and industrial markets.
  Raditeck AC - Developed by Radici and exclusively distributed in North America by ICF Mercantile, LLC, Raditect is a group of staple fibers that can be added to concrete to interlock the fresh concrete matrix. This mechanical stabilization controls shrinkage (i.e., plastic retraction). Raditeck AC reinforcement eliminates the crack formation that causes the permanent weakening in the resulting concrete. Raditeck AC decreases concrete permeability and improves its surface characteristics, such as impact resistance and toughness. These innovative features work synergistically to produce durable, high quality concrete.
  re/charged™ down - DOWNLITE's re/charged™ down is the company's new 100% recycled down product, which has received Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification. GRS, owned and managed by Textile Exchange, is a holistic certification for products with recycled content. It provides brands with a tool for more accurate labeling to encourage innovation in the use of reclaimed materials, to establish more transparency in the supply chain, and to provide better information to consumers. Downlite’s third party GRS certification was awarded by Textile Exchange accredited auditor, the Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification (ICEA). re/charged™ down is not only 100% recycled, but also 100% post-consumer, thus eliminating tons of material going into a landfill. re/charged™ down is offered in both white and gray colors and can be combined with Downlite’s performance-enhancing technologies such as its proprietary PFC-free DWR treatments and Pur-Down™ anti-microbial solution.
  Recyclon™ - A new product line of recycled nylon 6 fibers. Through this recycling process, Toray uses off-spec yarn generated during its virgin nylon production to create post-industrial recycled nylon yarn. Through this new process, the company utilizes only 15% of the energy required during the production of virgin nylon fibers made from petroleum.
  Reflexx® - Reflexx® is a family of stretch yarns produced by Unifi. The yarn was developed to enhance style and comfort without the use of an expensive spandex yarn. The Reflexx yarn has an engineered stretch and recovery that can provide varying amounts of stretch from comfort stretch to performance stretch. The stretch properties last the life of the fabric, and the yarn also possesses quick drying and easy-care qualities.
  Repreve® - Developed by Unifi, Repreve® is a family of first-quality, eco- friendly yarns made from 100% recycled materials. Repreve meets FTC guidelines for recycled products.
  Repreve® Nylon 6,6 - Like Repreve® polyester, this yarn is a first quality yarn made from 100% recycled materials. The production of Repreve® offsets the need to produce virgin polyester and nylon, coserving petroleum-based resources. On average, the current annual production of Repreve® is estimated to conserve the equivalent of 6 million gallons of gasoline.
