Bio-Polishing of Cotton Fabric with Cellulase
Cotton fabric was polished with cellulase in this paper. The effect of enzyme dosage, pH processing temperature and time on reducing sugar and weight loss were investigated. Enzymatic treatment was found to increase surface smoothness of cotton fabric because most surface fuzzes were removed. The optimum condition of bio-polishing process was as follows: enzyme dosage 3% owf, pH 4.5, processing temperature 50°C, time 60 minutes, liquor ratio 1:20.
