Amylase activity in Textiles

Enzymes like Amylase and Cellulase are frequently used in the textile industry to achieve certain characteristics of the fabric. Alpha-amylase is especially used for desizing whereas cellulases are used for polishing and finishing. The textile industry is a huge consumer of enzymes and often makes use of enzymes kits to achieve the desired look. The ability to control enzyme activity in mixtures is highly important for the end-result.

Phadebas® Amylase Test is used for determining alpha-amylase activity in enzyme baths, both at the actual textile producers and at the enzyme suppliers. Its ability to accurately determine alpha-amylase activity with a simple and rapid procedure makes it an important tool for quality control.
