PrimaGreen® ALL: Enzymatic desizing for all conditions

PrimaGreen® ALL delivers a step-change improvement in desizing performance across a wide range of processing conditions and formulations for ultimate flexibility and ease of use.

PrimaGreen ALL from DuPont Industrial Biosciences represents a step change in enzymatic desizing that delivers best-in-class product performance to the textiles industry, coupled with excellent energy and cost reductions.

What is PrimaGreen ALL?

PrimaGreen ALL is a highly concentrated liquid amylase solution for textiles desizing applications. Its wide temperature range and robust formulation means it can be applied under a broad range of processing conditions (pH 6 –10 and 20 – 105°C) and in a wide range of formulations for end-use. The low total phosphate and chemical oxygen demand (COD) in the working solution lowers the effluent treatment load.

For the textiles processor, PrimaGreen ALL enables ease of formulation, increased process flexibility and industry leading performance. Together, these deliver lower development costs and high potential for lower cost-in-use. PrimaGreen ALL can be used in a wide range of operating pH and temperature conditions, offering significant advantage to formulators and end-users.

Greater process flexibility & energy savings

A step-change in enzymatic desizing, PrimaGreen ALL delivers improved desizing performance compared to existing DuPont solutions and current competitive products. Industry-Leading Performance: PrimaGreen ALL delivers a step-change improvement in desizing performance across a wide range of processing conditions and formulations, for ultimate flexibility and ease of use.

Superior sustainability: PrimaGreen ALL is engineered to run end-to-end desizing operations at much lower temperatures than ever before across a broad pH range. Optimised Cost Savings: PrimaGreen ALL features less formulation development, better ease of handling, and lower energy costs with higher performance compared with other desizing solutions.
