Consistent results with Novozymes biopreparation
Even dyeing every time. Gentle on the fabric
Biopreparation uses pectinase to remove the pectin and wax from cotton fiber. The process produces fabrics with instant absorbency for an even dyeing result. It works in undyed cotton and in a wide range of colors – from dark to medium shades. A pectin test kit is available for process benchmarking and consistency control.
Due to the gentle process at neutral pH, fabrics that are scoured with enzymes lose less strength and weight than conventionally pretreated fabrics - 0.5% to 1% less weight loss. The textiles maintain cotton’s natural softness and stay soft for longer with no need for chemical softeners.
Don’t take our word for it
“Since then, we’ve launched an even more reliable second-generation bioprep solution with proven consistent results.”
With enzymatic scouring, mills produce more in a cleaner way, with less pollution.
Go from three baths to one with BioPrep®
Conventional scouring involves chemical neutralization and thorough rinsing. That's why it accounts for 25% of water used in cotton knit manufacturing. It also needs very high temperatures, leading to high energy spend and requires strong alkaline and bleaching chemicals. These add high chemical loads to mills’ effluent.
Conventional scouring involves a three-bath process. BioPrep® only needs one bath. This saves energy, water and time.
