Product Range

The range consists of polyethylene compound mainly used for extrusions, corrugated and non-corrugated pipe (conduit, plumbing pipe, steel pipe).

Beside the range of polyethylene compounds, another important application sector is synthetic turf. Radilene® serves as top-quality polyolefin performance infill for sports fields of the latest generation to ensure high performance, recyclability and total non-toxicity. Among its diverse activities RadiciGroup also produces Radigreen® artificial grass yarn. This Group synergy creates considerable advantages for the customer. For the automotive sector the Radilene® product range offers a polypropylene (PP) based compound, glass fibre charged.

Radilene® plastic compounds can be used for diverse applications, both traditional and innovative, whenever the product needs to be 100% non-toxic. In the artificial grass sector in particular, an important potential health problem concerning football pitches installed in Italy has been addressed by the Italian Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS – National Health Institute). Moreover, the same issue has arisen in a number of other European countries. In many cases, trace amounts of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) contamination has been found in synthetic turf. Traces of toluene, benzene and zinc in quantities higher than the allowable concentrations have also been discovered. PAHs are cancerous compounds, while zinc is a highly toxic heavy metal. These substances usually originate from the infill used in the installation of synthetic turf playing fields. 

Radici Elastomer’s Radilene® portfolio not only gives excellent qualitative performance but is also environmentally friendly and absolutely safe for human health. All Radilene® products are guaranteed to be processable, recyclable and completely non-toxic.
