Clean Up Enzyme

Americos Ptex SL (Enzyme for brightness & clean-up)
Introduction :
Americos Ptex SL is an oxidatively stable proteolytic enzyme ideal for brightness and clean-up and cellulase inactivation after stonewashing of denim or bio-finishing of cellulosic goods. This enzyme cannot be used with normal bio-polishing and fading enzyme.

Advantages :
  • Increase brightness
  • Improves clean-up
  • Enhance the contrast of abraded denim after cellulase treatment
  • It works on low temperature
  • Easy to use
  • Americos Ptex SL oxidatively stable and may be used with products containing such as hydrogen peroxide or sodium perborate.

Bio Scouring Enzyme

Americos Bio-Scoured XL
Introduction :
Americos Bio-Scoured XL is a blend of pectinase and cellulase enzyme. It is used in bio-scouring process. It breaks down the pectin in the cotton and thus assists the removal of waxes, oils and other impurities. It is environmental friendly and gentle to fabric processing. It also saves water and energy.

The traditional strong alkaline process is a harsh treatment; it reduces fabric weight by 6 - 8%. Americos Bio-scoured XL makes it possible to scour effectively without affecting the fabric and the environment. Unlike traditional scouring Americos Bio-Scouring methods give fabric a soft start and gentle preparation for the subsequent stages of textile wet-processing.

Advantages :
  • Softer fabric
  • Reduced water consumption
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Mild application conditions
