ACIZYME-570

ACIZYME-570 | Acid cellulase enzyme for stone washing

Product Information

Acizyme-570 is a concentrated, powder acid cellulase enzyme for bio-polishing of cellulosics and polyester/cellulosic blends. The product is to be used in garment dyeing machine and jet dyeing machine where suitable mechanical action is provided which enhances the action of Acizyme-570. It is also suitable for colour fading for denim garments and bio-polishing of knits, fabrics & terry towels. 

To avoid excess strength loss of garments and materials after biopolishing,it is recommended deactiviation of Acizyme-570 after the treatment.

Application

1. For Biopolishing of cottons and blends in exhaust after pretreatment : 

  • Acizyme-570 : 0.5-1% 
  • Bath pH : 4.5-5.0 
  • Temperature : 45-55 deg.C 
  • Treatment time : 30-60 min

Dosage should be based on cotton component only. 

Note: 

1. Acizyme-570 to be added after adjustment of pH and temperature of bath. 

2. After the bio-polishing treatment, raise the temperature to 70 deg.C and/or adjust pH to 10 to terminate action of enzyme. The material can then be finished using chemical finishes as usual. 

3. Combined bio-polishing and peroxide elimination can be carried out for cotton knits and terry towels prior to reactive dyeing. Bio-polishing is usually recommended before cationic dye-fixation or cationic softening. 

Precautions

Storage : Store in cool, ventilated shed away from heat and direct sunlight. Storage temperature should not exceed 35 deg C. Close lids firmly to avoid contact with air and moisture.
