SÃO PAULO – Mar. 8, 2021 – IFF's Health & Biosciences division announced the selection of Polyorganic Tecnologia Ltda as the distribution partner for the enzyme portfolio for textile processing in Brazil.
The enzymatic solutions from IFF's Health & Biosciences division are used in a large variety of textile processes, including desizing, biopolishing, bleaching and finishing of fabrics and garments.
"With the help of Polyorganic, we will be able to provide better service and support to customers in Brazil," says Elaine Scarelli, regional leader for home & personal care, IFF's Health & Biosciences division. "We are excited to be able to contribute more to the innovation and sustainable development of the textile industry in Brazil, with enzymatic solutions that provide quality processes, with reduced water and energy costs".
Being natural biocatalysts, enzymes provide a more sustainable solution to produce textiles, as they replace caustic chemicals used in scouring, reduce pressure in waste water treatment, work at lower temperatures and use lower dosages compared to traditional textile processes and improve production efficiency by reducing the use of water and energy.
IFF's Health & Biosciences textile processing enzymes’ portfolio include the product and brand names: Optisize® NEXT and PrimaGreen® EcoSize Plus for desizing fabrics and garments, PrimaGreen® EcoScour and PrimaGreen® EcoWhite 10, for scouring and bleaching at a lower temperature in neutral pH; PrimaGreen® Oxy and GC 118®, for effective removal of peroxide and a more consistent dyeing result; Primafast® cellulase products for biopolishing to obtain a softer touch and “clean” fabric surface that lasts longer and IndiAge® cellulase for denim stonewashing.
