Dyadic : Utilizing its proprietary technology, Dyadic has manufactured and sold enzymes for the textiles, animal feed, starch, pulp and paper and food industries, since 1994. Dyadic's global market reach and manufacturing capabilities, paired with its large scale 150,000 liter fermenters in the USA and Europe, enable it to market and sell over 50 products to customers in more than 35 countries. Dyadic's core business was initially focused on the textiles industry, providing jean manufacturers with the pumice stones needed for stonewashing denim garments. Building on the company's success with pumice, Dyadic added several chemical auxiliaries to its product line. Enzyme manufacturing filled a need within the textiles industry by providing high quality acid and neutral cellulase enzymes at competitive prices. Today, Dyadic discovers, develops, manufactures and markets a full range of products to meet your enzyme needs for the manufacturing of textiles.
Enzyme Services and Consultancy (United Kingdom) Enzymes have been used in the leather industry for many years and more recently have been introduced into modern textile industries. The main applications of enzymes in the leather industry are proteases which help in the dehairing of the animal hides and lipases are used for degreasing. In the modern textile industry enzymes are used increasingly in the finishing of fabrics and clothes. The main component of cotton and other natural fibres is cellulose. Whilst most of the fibres are arranged as long, straight chains some small fibres can protrude from the yarn or fabric. The correct application of a cellulase enzyme can remove these rough protruberances giving a smoother, glossier brighter coloured fabric. This technique has become known as Biopolishing and results in not only a softer fabric but also improved colour brightness. The same process has recently been adapted and included in some laundry detergents. The finishing of denim jeans has also become a popular application for cellulases in the textile industry. Traditionally denim was was stonewashed with pumice stones to fade the surface of the garment. A small application of cellulase can replace many of the stones resulting in less damage to the garments and machinery. This technique has become known as Biostoning and can result in much greater fading without high abrasive damage both to the actual fabric and any other accessories (buttons, rivets) on the fabric. Stonewashing enzymes are usually available as either "acid" cellulases (optimum activity around 4.5) and "neutral" cellulases (optimum activity at just below pH 7.0).

|Coatings formulad coatings for textiles used in apparel, luggage, ribbons and specialty markets|
: They provide a range of enzymes like amylases, cellulases, catalase,
pectinase and protease for various textile wet-processing applications like
desizing, bio-polishing, denim finishing, bleach clean-up, bio-scouring
and de-wooling. Desizing For fabrics made from cotton or blends, the warp
threads are coated with an adhesive substance know as 'size
; to prevent the threads breaking during weaving. Although many different compounds have been used to size fabrics, starch and its derivatives have been the most common sizing agent. After weaving, the size must be removed again in order to prepare the fabric for dyeing and finishing. This process (desizing) must be carried out by treating the fabric with chemicals such as acids, alkali or oxidising agents. However starch
breaking enzymes (amylases) are preferred for desizing due to their high efficiency and specific action. Amylases bring about complete removal of the size without any harmful effects on the fabric. Another benefit of enzymes compared to strong chemicals mentioned above is that enzymes are environment friendly.

Textan Chemical : TEXTAN CHEMICALS took up the challenging task of carving a niche for itself in the competitive field of Leather auxiliaries. Today, discerning customers in India and abroad, rely on us for quality, economy and uninterrupted supply of chemicals. The export oriented leather industry in India has benefited enormously, as these chemicals were not manufactured in the country earlier. The long list of eminent customers who have engaged TEXTAN as their permanent supplier can vouch for our claims. Recently TEXTAN has diversified into the field of Textile auxiliaries. They are one of the very few manufacturers of textile stone washing enzymes and desizing enzymes in India. Building on the core competency achieved in enzyme production, the Textile division was started in 1996 to manufacture and supply desizing and stone washing enzymes, textile binders, cationic softeners, dye fixing agents and other textile auxiliaries. Within a short period, they have been able to carve a niche for ourselves in this competitive field too, due to our quality, timely deliveries and economic supplies.
