BioScour – ECO (Bioscouring Enzyme for Textile Industry)
BioScour – ECOis a Bioscouring Enzyme produced from a selected strain of fungal species. It is a ready to use formulation manufactured to specifications that fill the needs of Fabric Processors. BioScour – ECO is used for bio-scouring of cellulosic fabrics under alkaline conditions. It hydrolyzes pectin and associated hemicellulose matter from the fabrics thus assisting in eco-friendly removal of waxes and other impurities. The impurities are removed by combined mechanical agitation of the fabric and the enzymatic action thus eliminating the need for harsh chemicals while saving water and energy.
BioScour – ECO offers the following benefits:
Specific action on Pectin matter.
Improves softness and appearance of fabric.
Saves energy and water requirements.
Eco-friendly & Biodegradable.
CHARACTERISTICS & PROCESSING PARAMETERS:
|Operative pH range||6 - 9|
|Operative Temperature range||30°C - 70°C|
|Solubility||Soluble in water|
The enzymatic effect depends on nature of fabric, type of process and application parameters. It is recommended to check process parameters like garment load size, liquor ratio, temperature, pH, process time, dosage and rinsing cycles.
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 – 1 % (owg).
It is recommended to test compatibility of BioScour - ECO with ingredients like wetting agents etc. prior to its use and its applications.
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.
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.
