Renycle® is a product obtained from recycled nylon 6, a highly valued material because of its excellent resistance, dyeability, softness and versatility. Through recycling and recovery, production scrap is converted into polymers and then into a yarn endowed with technical performance characteristics perfect for textile flooring, apparel and automotive applications.

Renycle®’s technological value and performance remain unchanged over time and there is no loss into the environment. Conversion of scrap eliminates the need for new raw material.

Main results

Resource saving compared to standard PA6 polymer production:

  • Energy saving: 87,4%
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions: 89,3%
  • Water saving: 90,4%.

The energy consumed in Renycle® polymer production is entirely green, as it comes from renewable sources.

Renycle® is the ideal solution for all those sectors where creativity and high performance are required. It has countless applications in:

  • fashion (activewear, underwear, hosiery, technical apparel, outerwear, beachwear) and
  • flooring (hotels and offices, airplanes, automobiles, theatres and movie theatres, cruise ships).
