Genecor Develops Denim-Finishing System

Rochester, N.Y.-based Genencor recently introduced the IndiStar™ ColorAdjust System for the denim-finishing market. According to the company, the system enables denim processors to develop their own formulations to create different denim looks from increased-contrast styles to highly bleached, vintage looks.

The system comprises IndiStar Active, a highly active laccase enzyme granule; and IndiStar Control, a denim-bleaching mediator chemical — both of which are gentle enough to use on fabrics containing elastanes. Formulated using the proprietary Enzoguard™ granulation process, IndiStar Active granules are protected from inactivation caused by oxygen and humidity. Genencor states that under normal storage conditions, the IndiStar Control molecule is stable and not subject to degradation.

“With this new product line, Genencor is extending its product portfolio for denim treatment from the traditional stonewashing cellulase products to offering an environmentally friendly solution for replacement of harsh chemicals such as chlorine and permanganate,” said John Gell, vice president, Textiles and Industrial Specialties, Genencor. “This development will help consumers to make sustainable choices in order to protect our environment.”
