BioPol – ECO / MAXx (Economy / MAXx Series Biopolishing Enzyme)
BioPol – ECO / MAXx is a product for Biopolishing of Cotton Knits and Wovens in Soft Flow and Wash Wheel process. BioPol - ECO / MAXx is used for biopolishing of cellulosic fabric under acidic conditions. It partially digests excess and protruding yarns, loosening them from the fabric. The resulting fuzz is then easily removed by mechanical agitation of the fabric. This not only creates a smoother fabric with resistance to pilling, but also improves softness, luster and drape.
BioPol - ECO / MAXx offers the following benefits:
Specific action on protruding fibers only.
Improves texture, softness and appearance of fabric.
Wide variety of application processes.
Eco-friendly & Biodegradable.

The cellulase enzyme must be inactivated after the desired washed effect is obtained.
The dosage can be optimized on basis of trials only and depends upon nature of fabric, type of process, processing conditions and desired level of performance efficacy. The recommended dosages however are 0.5 – 2 % (owg).
It is recommended to test compatibility of BioPol - ECO / MAXx with ingredients like wetting agents etc. prior to its use and its applications.
The enzyme can be inactivated by holding the bath at pH > 9.0 and Temperature > 75°C for 15 minutes.
It is available in 25 KG & 50 KG HDPE Drums.
Cool & dry conditions are recommended. Extended storage or adverse conditions may lead to higher dosage requirement.
It can be stored in closed container up to six months at 25°C or for one year at 5°C, the enzyme activity is not less than 90% of the labeled value.
Enzyme preparation belongs to protein, which may induce sensitization and or cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Prolonged contact may cause minor irritation for skin, eyes or mucous membrane of nose, so any direct contact with the human body should be avoided. If irritation or allergic response for skin or eyes develops, consult a doctor. MSDS is available on request.
