For some of its tapes, Nastrotex-Cufra uses yarns made from recycled plastic bottles.

The yarn is entirely made from post-consumer recycled materials through a mechanical process that involves no chemicals and is certified 100% Made in Italy throughout the supply chain.
The range of yarns used includes several that are sophisticated in terms of innovation and permits a large number of textile applications.
The tapes created with them are not only sustainable but also attractive and high performance.

Briefly how it works

  1. Plastic bottles are recovered from differentiated waste collection in the north of Italy.
  2. Once the plastic bottles have been cleaned, cut and shred into granules, a mechanical process is used to transform them into the Newlife™ polymer.
  3. Sinterama uses its technological know-how gained through years of experience and research to convert the polymer into a range of high quality and high performance recycled yarns, suitable for a wide variety of applications.

The recycled yarns guarantee the same level of performance and quality as the polyester yarns made from virgin polymers that are normally used on the market.
