BioTan – ALKP (Concentrated Alkaline Protease for Formulation)


BioTan – ALKPis a concentrated alkaline protease enzyme preparation derived from a selected strain of Bacillus spp. It hydrolyses protein matter into soluble peptides. It specifically removes the intrafibrillary protein materials that cement fibers to allow maximum re-hydration. It also removes connective tissue proteins, thus loosening flesh and adipose tissue stuck to hides. It is best suited to be formulated into products according to end user specifications and requirements.


BioTan – ALKP specifically removes the unwanted protein materials like elastin, albumin, mucoids and globulin without damaging the collagen. It also removes coagulable inter fibrillary protein especially elastin and also removes degraded products of keratin such as epithelial cells, sebaceous glands. It ensures maximum removal of scud and natural dirt.

BioTan – ALKP offers the following benefits:
Specific action on protein based matter only.
No damage to strength.
Elimination and or reduction of usage of aggressive chemicals.
Wide variety of application processes.
Eco-friendly & Biodegradable.

ACTIVITY: The activity can be customized according to performance requirements or current use.

The performance of enzymes in tanning depends on number of factors, including the pH and temperature of the process, float ratio, process time, dosage of product, enzyme activity present in product at time of its use and process parameters.

The dosage can be optimized on basis of trials only and depends upon the concentration of formulated product and desired level of performance efficacy.

Enzymes designed for use in tanning applications are compatible with commonly used bating, dehairing, degreasing and soaking components in general. However it is recommended to test compatibility of BioTan – ALKP with the ingredients prior to their applications.

It is available in 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.
