Americos K - 920

Americos K - 920 is a bio-polishing enzyme. The term bio-polishing refers to the removal of fluffy fibers / protruding fibers from the surface of fabric by enzymatic hydrolysis. Such bio-polishing results in clear fabric surface. Americos K - 920 has three different enzyme activities: Exo-Cellulase, Endo-Cellulase and ß-Glucosidase which makes Americos K - 920 especially suitable for all kinds of cellulosic fibers.

Americos K - 920 enzymatically hydrolyses the protruding fibers and loosens their ends. The removal of such hydrolyzed fibers requires mechanical agitation. Hence, the machines like soft-flow, jet and wash wheel, which produce mechanical agitation, are more suitable for bio-polishing.
