Some pointers for using Ulterion products to assist in developing improved looks and/or performance: Some pointers for using Ulterion productsto assist in developing improved looks and/or performance: Acid Cellulase for Denim (with reduced backstaining) Ulterzyme 4116 would be my first choice for a liquid product. It is very concentrated and can easily be formulated. This is a liquid product that performs well at pH 4.5 to 6. For customers requiring pH 4.5 - 5, this can be marketed as an acid. A good alternative would be Ulterzyme 4115 as a simple acid product. Low temperature Hybrid Cellulase Ulterzyme 4106 is the first choice (liquid). Ulterzyme 4116 is the second choice here, with optimal pH 5.5 - 6. Ulterzyme 4108 for a granular. Neutral Cellulase - Powder (granulate) Ulterzyme 4199 Biopolishing - Liquid Ulterzyme 4116 Laccase - Ulterzyme 4100 (enzyme, base) and Ulterzyme 4102 (Mediator or Assist) used together at a ratio of 15 parts base to 7 parts assist.

More Dave Pointers For black staining of the pockets after wash in black jeans processing the usual ethoxolates and polyesters don't do much for sulphur black, however PVP K-15 or K-30 (poly vinyl pyrrolidone, 15,000 or 30,000 mw) would help at about 2-5% on the weight of the denim. A similar level of Kelzan S (Xanthan gum) or a mix of the two can also help. Another possibility may be to include some sodium percarbonate to try to bleach the stain a little, but this would necessarily limit the pH to 10 or above, which is not appropriate for enzyme application, but may be useful for after-treatment.
