More enzymes for higher performance

Most everyday stains consist of multiple elements, including starch, protein, grease, mannan and pectin. Each element is targeted by a specific enzyme, so the more enzymes in a blend, the closer it can come to breaking down these stains completely. Many high-performing detergents also contain cellulase enzymes. These target broken fibers on cotton fabrics that trap dirt, make colors look dull and lead to pilling – another name for the fuzz balls that build up on cottons over time.

Novozymes Medley® multi-enzyme blends

The Medley suite of blends is composed of the widest, most innovative range of enzymes available to the detergent industry. Each unique, stable blend contains enzymes that have been specifically developed for compatibility with one another. That allows them to work together to deliver consistently high performance and optimize your formulation. With Medley® blends, you can bring more new products to market faster, better meeting your consumers’ needs.

Simplify and save with Medley® blends

Optimizing your formulation with Medley blends means less reworking of batches due to formulation errors. The result is lower development costs. Medley also simplifies multi-enzyme dosing by removing the need for investment in additional dosing stations. In procurement, Medley simplifies inventory with fewer stock keeping units, to reduce inventory costs and free up working capital.

Multi-enzyme synergy effectively remove stains

The high performance of multi-enzyme blends is based on the synergy between the enzymes in the blend. The elements typically found in everyday stains include starch, protein, grease, mannan and pectin. Each element forms a layer within the stain that can only be broken down by a specific enzyme. Enzymes also need to be in direct contact with their target substrates to remove them.

So if the top layer of a stain is protein and the layer beneath is starch, a protease and amylase will work synergistically. The protease will break down the top layer of the stain and clear the path for the amylase to work on the starch layer.

A demonstration in our laboratory shows how specific enzymes target and break down specific components of a stain.

A multi-enzyme blend targets all the components in a typical food stain, to completely and efficiently remove it.
