Korteks, the technology base in polyester yarn production, will continue to be in new markets with the yarns it develops. As Korteks, the largest integrated polyester yarn production center in Europe, we dream for a sustainable world and make all endeavors to deliver better tomorrows that rely on innovative and technological advancements in line with Zorlu Holding s vision of Smart Life 2030 . And, accordingly, we take our pride in achieving another breakthrough moment in Turkey with the Polymer Recycling Plant which would allow us to produce Taç Reborn from plastic bottles. At the Polymer Recycling Plant, we are producing RPET Chips, the raw material of the TAÇ Reborn, extracted from the waste plastic bottles.


TAÇ texturized polyester yarns have been specially treated to create various texturized effects such as false twists, crimps, etc that mimic the appearance of natural-fiber yarns. Semi-dull, full-dull, s.bright productions are available in the range of dtex 28-1300, with different filament counts. A variety of dope-dyed color options are also available.


TAÇ polyester FDY is fully-drawn polyester yarn that is ready for use in virtually every textile-manufacturing operation. More than 200 dope-dyed color options are available in a wide range of (45-900) denier and filament counts (3-432). This flat yarn s production is possible with high-speed These yarns have also high and low shrinkage version except standart type. They are available in ecru and dope-dyed options.


A patented performance fabric brand, DRY TOUCH® fabric s unique features arise from their yarns. DRY TOUCH® is the brand name of a fabric and not that of a yarn. The right to make DRY TOUCH® fabrics belongs exclusively to Zorlu Holding, which has licensed a limited number of other manufacturers to use the process. To ensure quality consistency, Korteks checks the features of DRY TOUCH® fabrics at each stage of their production. Finished fabrics are documented and certified, which ensures fabrics will be made to exactly the same specifications the next time an order for them is placed. DRY TOUCH® products are uniquely labelled in order to prevent them from being replicated or counterfeited. Ever stage of DRY TOUCH® fabric and product manufacture from initial yarns to final goods (including even their placement on store racks) is subject to strict oversight in order to be assured of end-user satisfaction. DRY TOUCH® fabrics are made from high-tech functional channel cross-sectioned fibers that are made at Korteks s own yarn factory using a patented technology. The combination of advanced technology with functionality results in the creation of high-performance DRY TOUCH® fabrics that simultaneously look natural, feel softer, and have better draping features. Advanced moisture management The patented channel cross-sectioned fibers used in DRY TOUCH® fabrics allow them to breathe naturally by letting air in and moisture out. Tests have shown that DRY TOUCH® fabrics absorb moisture faster than do ordinary cotton fabrics. In tests in which DRY TOUCH® fabrics are submerged vertically into water, they absorb far more water than cotton fabrics are capable of.


At the Polymer Recycling Plant, we are producing RPET Chips, the raw material of the polyester yarn, extracted from the waste plastic bottles, a non-biodegradable product capable of inducing negative environmental impact by uncontrollably remaining in the nature for prolonged periods, and other yarns discarded as production wastes to obtain a recyclable product, the filament polyester yarn. Thanks to this innovative recycling process, we not only save energy as the process requires less energy when compared to the traditional production practices,but also endorse reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.Therefore, we support recycling processes through circular economy while also contributing to build a sustainable future in the long run. The product that certified by GRS, can be used in all areas where virgin polyester is used, such as clothing, technical textiles, home textiles, socks, medical textiles, automotive, etc.
