Enzymes are biological catalysts which enhance the chemical reactions in the living body but till the early 19th century it was still unknown, the first enzyme discovered was Diastase in 1833 by French chemist Anselme Payen. Enzymes have been used for the processing of natural textile/fabrics for more than 200 years.
Main enzymes which are used in the textile industry are- cellulase, protease, and amylase. They are used for desizing and bio-bleaching purposes along with removal of starch and lignin, hydrogen peroxide, etc. Cellulase enzyme is the most widely used enzyme in the textile industry for denim finishing and decolorization of textiles.
Some of the main uses of enzymes in Textile Industry are:
Desizing: To improve the quality of textile fabric they are treated with starch and other materials and to remove these excess materials mainly starch, amylase enzyme is used for improved and uniform wet processing. Amylases are hydrolytic enzymes which catalyses the breakdown of starch, sugars, dextrins, etc.
Bio-polishing: It is a technique mainly used for cellulosic fabrics with the help of cellulase enzyme and sometimes blend of cellulase and other enzymes. Bio-polishing process enhances the quality of fabric by removing the protruding fibers and modifies the surface structure of the fiber and thus making it soft and smooth. Some of the advantages of biopolishing process are:
Improves the softness
Improves pilling resistance
Clear surface structure
Improves the absorbency property
Bio-scouring: Scouring is a process of removal of excess of non-cellulosic substances present on the surface of the cotton and bio-scouring is a scouring process involving the enzymes instead of chemicals. Mainly, cellulase and pectinase enzymes are used in combination for this process.
Bio-bleaching: Bleaching is a process of removal of natural pigments from the fabric and to give complete white appearance to the fabrics. Conventional process of using hydrogen peroxide for bleaching requires a huge amount of water while enzymes remove this issue.
