Melting point of cotton waxes and effects of temperature on cotton waxes removal were investigated. Based on these results a temperature control process for cutinase was developed to improve cotton waxes removal: Firstly cotton fabric was treated by cutinase at 70°C for 10 min, and then the treatment temperature was switched to 55°C and kept this temperature till to the end of the treatment. As a result, maximal cotton waxes removal of 67.69% for cutinase and 75.37% for combined enzymes (cutinase with pectinase and cellulase) were achieved, which was 17.96% and 13.88% higher than that of treatment at 55°C for cutinase and combined enzymes respectively. Moreover, the mechanism involved in enhancing cotton waxes removal in temperature control process was also discussed.
