Smart Stitch is a thermofusing stitching thread enabling heat-activated disassembly (up to 195°C) of textile products
Zippers and buttons make garment recycling and reuse complicated as the removal of such details calls for manual assistance, making the process both costly and time consuming. Resortecs® solves this problem by supplying a thread, Smart Stitch, that simply dissolves at a high temperature and can be used on existing machines. This stitching thread works double wonders – it makes both repairing and recycling a breeze. When used for regular seams, the whole piece of clothing can easily be disassembled so that the fabric can be used over and over in new ways, cutting the need to produce fabric from scratch. Thanks to its effortless implementation Resortecs® technologies have the potential to become industry standards in the textile and fashion industry as a stepping stone towards circular economy. Stitch by stitch, Resortecs® brings new life to old fashion.
