Resortecs leads the circular transition through targeted innovations in the way clothes are assembled and disassembled. Resortecs’ solutions empower textile brands to rise to today’s environmental challenges at the pace and scale Earth needs without compromising the creativity, design, and quality. Resortecs' globally patented thermal disassembly solution is 5X faster than traditional disassembly methods and makes it possible to recycle up to 90% of the original fabrics. Resortecs’ technology is composed of: 1) Smart Stitch™, heat-dissolvable stitching threads with different melting points (150°C, 170°C and 190°C), and 2) Smart Disassembly™, thermal disassembly systems. This technology enables brands to transform their products into recyclable, circular pieces from the manufacturing stage and recyclers to unlock higher volumes of recyclable material allowing circularity in the textile industry.
