Americos Catalase XL (Highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide killer enzyme) Introduction : Americos Catalase XL is highly effective in catalyzing the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water. In textiles processing, this is often the most preferred mode of hydrogen peroxide removal after the bleaching step as the enzyme and the breakdown products are totally inert to Reactive dyestuffs.
Americos Catalase XL enzyme accommodates a broad pH and temperature range and remains effective even at high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide.
Enzyme is completely biodegradable
Highly effective hydrogen peroxide removal
Effective over a broad temperature range
Works well at any residual peroxide level
Reduces water consumption
Enzyme and the breakdown products (water and oxygen) have no effect on dyestuffs
Increase dyeing productivity
Soluble in Water
Removing Hydrogen Peroxide with Americos Catalase XL
Americos Catalase XL removes hydrogen peroxide with very simple system with cost effectiveness and reliability Excess reducing chemical used ? H2O2 removed but excess reducing chemical affects dyeing Insufficient reducing chemical used ? H2O2 not fully removed and affects dyeing
Removal of Hydrogen Peroxide : Hydrogen peroxide and other peroxy compounds are commonly used for bleaching in preparation of cellulase based fabrics and yarns. If not completely removed, hydrogen peroxide will cause shade change with some fiber Reactive dyes. Even a small amount of residual hydrogen peroxide, particularly left in creases and folds of fabric, causes change in cast of dye resulting in uneven dyeing.
