Amylase TT 12L (cleaning)

An Enzyme Supplies amylase enzyme for laundry applications


Amylase TT-12L is an amylase enzyme used in detergents for laundry as well as automatic dishwashing. Amylase TT-12L facilitates the removal of starch containing stains, e.g. from pasta, potato, gravy, chocolate, and baby food. Dried-up starch is difficult to remove at medium to low temperatures, especially with detergents of modest alkalinity. It adheres to the surface of laundry and dishes, acting as a glue for other stain components. Amylase TT-12L hydrolyzes the starch into dextrins and sugars which are readily dissolved in the washing liquor.
Amylase TT-12L is an alpha-amylase produced by submerged fermentation of a genetically modified Bacillus microorganism.
