Effective textile printing using different enzyme systems

  title={Effective textile printing using different enzyme systems},
  author={Vanja Kokol and Elisabeth Heine},
The possibility of using enzymes in natural and synthetic thickener systems for the printing of cotton and wool has been investigated, in particular the effect on colour and surface structure. The efficiency of different enzymes (cellulases, proteases and laccases) concerning their applicability, i.e. activity and stability within different thickener systems (polysaccharide, acrylic polymer and their mixtures), was studied. Rheological parameters (viscosity and viscoelasticity) of the printing… CONTINUE READING
