NEOAGE IN is a new generation of laccase enzyme for the discoloration of indigo dyes on jeans. NEOAGE IN has the advantages of 1) Improved shade reproduction, 2) Little effects on fabric strength, 3) Produce a gray shade, 4) Better shelf-life stability than the old preparations of laccase, 5) very effective at inactivation of cellulase. NEOAGE IN is a solid, fully formulated powder, with much broader pH range and control, broader temperature profile, and easy to handle. SCOPE OF APPLICATION – Textiles (denim), detergents. – Enzyme preparations are biocatalysts used in a variety of food processing. PROPERTIES Description : Enzyme preparation Appearance : Off white granulated powder CAS number : 80498-15-3 APPLICATION Denim decolorization TREATMENT CONDITIONS Temperature : 55˚C – 70 ºC (optimal 65ºC) pH : 4.0 – 5.0 Running time : 10 to 30 minutes Dosage : 0.5 to 2.0 % (owg) Liquor ratio : 4:1 – 20:1 (optimal 5:1). Observations: Avoid very high liquor levels, tightly closed machines and low mechanical action. NEOAGE IN does not destroy the sulfur dyes.
