pH of 1% solution 5 +/- 1
Miscibility Readily miscible with water
Stability Stable to dilute acids & dilute alkalies
Compatibility Not compatible with strong cationic or anionic products but compatible with non-ionic product
  • Equipment: Jet dyeing machine or garment dyeing machine.
  • Biopol-N : 0.5-1.5% depending on requirement
  • pH: 5-6.5
  • Temperature: 50-65 deg.C
  • Treatment time: 45-60 mins

After the biopolishing treatment, raise the temperature to 70-75 deg.C or adjust pH to 10 to terminate action of enzyme followed by hot wash. The material can then be finished using chemical finishes as usual.

  1. Bio-polishing is usually recommended before cationic dye-fixing or finishing.
  2. Combined bio-polishing and peroxide elimination can be carried out (if peroxide killer is enzyme based) to cotton knits and terry towels prior to dyeing.
  3. Simultaneously biopolishing and exhaustion of dye at 55-60 deg C can be carried out and when alkali is added then enzyme will be deactivated.
  4. Solution of Biopol-N should be prepared in water pH 5-6.5 only

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.

Shelf Life : 9 months from the date of manufacturing, if stored under controlled conditions.
