Bio Scouring Enzyme
Americos Bio-Scoured XLIntroduction :
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
|Chemical character||Mixture of Pectinase and cellulase enzyme|
|Solubility||Readily soluble in water|
|pH (1% solution)||7 ± 1|
|Application pH range||7.5 - 9|
|Application temperature range||55° - 60°C|
|Hard water||Good, Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions increase the efficacy of enzyme|
|Alkalies||Stable in alkaline region from pH 7 to 9|
|Metal ions||Iron and copper ions are poisonous for enzymes|
Application Methods :
|Non-ionic surfactant||Generally very good|
|Anionic surfactant||Selective, some reduce the efficacy of the enzyme|
|Solvent based surfactant||Selective, some reduce the efficacy of the enzyme|
|Organic sequestrant||Generally good|
|Reducing / oxidizing agent||Reduce the efficacy of enzyme|
Americos Bio-Scoured XL can be applied by exhaust method.
Exhaust Application:(Jigger, Soft-flow m/c, Winch)
|Americos Bio-Scoured XL||2 - 3 ml/l|
|Americos Anti-Crease Pro-76 A||0.5 - 1 g/l|
|Temperature||55° - 60°C|
Add 2-3 g/l of Americos Extracta XL (emulsifying cum wetting agent), raise the temperature to 80°-85°C and run the machine for 30 minutes. Drain the above at high temperature. Give one hot wash and one cold wash.Storage & Handling Precautions :
- Store in cool place.
- Avoid storing in direct sunlight.
- The shelf life of Americos Bio-Scoured XL is one year if stored properly.
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.
|Activity||20000 U/kg minimum|
|Size||80 - 100 mesh|
|Process Parameter||Operational Range|
|pH||7 - 10|
|Dosage||0.01 - 0.10% (owg)|
|Time||5 - 20 minutes|
Americos Ptex SL reduces backstaining caused by cellulase treatment of denim. It enhances the interaction of residual cellulase which is bound to the fabric and is present in the wash liquor retained by the fabric after treatment.Technical Service:
