Smart Stitch™ - Resortecs provides a dismountable stitching thread and rivets to assemble textile products that can easily be disassembled later on using heat.
With the simple change of a bobbin on the sewing machine, our customers’ products become part of an efficient sorting, disassembly and recycling process powered by Resortecs’ solutions and technologies.
The fast fashion’s business model is built on overproduction of low-quality textile products that mainly end up in incineration yards due to the absence of efficient sorting processes for recycling. This results in increasing greenhouse gasses, depletion of resources and land exploitation, thus putting local communities at risk and jeopardizing the planet’s wellbeing. Zippers and buttons make textile products recycling 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 stitching thread for seams that melts at specific temperatures matching the materials and use requirements of the textile product. When needed, the finished product can then be dismantled in Resortecs® continuous and automatic disassembly ovens. By helping brands to recycle their products and components, Resortecs® makes brands reduce their environmental footprint, while slashing their inventory costs.
