Neutral Enzyme (TS-3)
Neutral enzyme TS-3 is a high concentrated cellulase granule
product intended for incorporation in stone washing reformulations
as a base ingredient in the laundry. It has high performance for
the new shades and finishes to be created easily and
cost-effectively, in an environmental-friendly way under the
neutral conditions in the laundry.
Neutral enzyme TS-3 is recommended for the following advantage in
the finishing for the denim in the laundry.
• High color contrast finish and quick to stone washing
• High degree of reproducibility and reliability
• Improved wash look, or create new looks
• Easy and cost effective reformulation
• Special granular formulation for Improved durability of Cellulase
• Easy to be reformulated with the other chemicals
Appearance: light yellow granule
Odor: Slight fermentation odor
The optimal pH and Temperature ranges for Neutral enzyme TS-3 are
pH 4.5-6.5 and 40-55°C to optimize its performance and anti-back
staining properties. The broad pH and Temperature range result in a
flexible and easy to-use product, which has low requirements for
buffer salts and dispersing agents.
Typical Reformulation Applications
Neutral enzyme TS-3 is suitable for reformulations in the laundry.
The following reformulation recipe is a basic recipe for your
reference and you could adjust the base enzyme and the buffer
system according to the finishing effect and local environment
A typical reformulation is based on the following general formula,
targeting an end-use dosage between 0.5-2% o.w.g.:
2 - 12% Neutral enzyme TS-3
50-55% Buffer Salts(citric acid or adipic acid or others )
0-15% anti-back-staining agents
0-30% Soluble fillers, e.g. sodium sulphate
0-5% Conditioner, e.g. starch and silicates
A phosphate or phosphate/citrate, adipic acid buffer is
particularly suitable for the pH range in requirement in 5.0-6.5.
However, a combination of citric acid and adipic acid can be used
as a non-phosphate alternative.
The suggested buffer systems should be used as a starting point;
additional adjustment to meet local conditions may be necessary
Neutral enzyme TS-3 is compatible with most nonionic surfactants.
Anionic or cationic surfactants should be avoided. In particular,
alcohol ethoxylates are widely used in denim finishing. Most
surfactants of interest are liquids or pastes at room temperature.
However, it is possible to include a liquid surfactant in a solid
formulation by spraying the surfactant onto a carrier material such
as kaolin, silicate or starch.
The formulation should be thoroughly mixed to ensure homogeneity.
Auxiliary compatibility with Neutral enzyme TS-3 should be
determined by conducting performance and enzyme stability
The following recipes are intended as a starting point for further
formulation work. Optimization to meet local conditions will be
needed. The targeted product finish requires a dose between 0.5-3%
of the final formulation, depending on desired shade, fabric
quality and size of machinery.

To ensure extend shelf life, store Neutral enzyme TS-3 at 25℃ or
below in a sealed container. Exposure of this product to elevated
temperatures for prolonged periods of time may result in loss of
Safety Enzyme Handing
Enzymes are proteins and inhalation of dust or aerosols may induce
sensitization and may cause allergic reactions in sensitized
individuals. Some enzymes may irritate the skin, eyes and mucous
membranes upon prolonged contact. Inhalation of enzyme dust and
mists should be avoided. In case of contact with skin or eyes,
promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes.
