The alteration of an ion exchange resin structure by destruction of the cross-link polymer (such as divinylbenzene) as the result of very aggressive chemical attack (by chlorine, ozone or hydrogen peroxide, for example) or heat. Decross-linking causes increased moisture content in an ion exchange resin and the physical swelling of the beads.
