Stone Light

Paste-like liquid formulation with iridescent effect. Applied in bath or in print.
The luminous effect makes the jeans bright under sunlight/artificial light.
Patented by MONTE CHIMICA SPA

Desizing

Desizing is an important process in the treatment of fabrics. Not only does it remove sizes from fabrics, but also removes a number of impurities from cotton fibres. A good desizing treatment product does not affect finishing and dyeing, reduces yarn breakages and increases productivity.

Benefits of Desizing:

Alpha amylase for enzymatic desizing (washing) at low temperature 20-30°C (ZDHC).

cod. L11121C

Concentrated alpha amylase for enzymatic desizing (washing) at medium temperature 40-60°C (ZDHC).

cod. L11121D

Concentrated alpha amylase resistant to high temperature 90-110°C (ZDHC).

cod. L11121E

Stone Washing

Of all denim processing methods, stone washing is certainly the one most interconnected with socio-cultural influences. Originally, the process employed the use of real pumice stones to soften the fabric and make it ideal for creating the “worn” effect, a style loved by young people in the 70s, but which never went out of fashion in the following decades either.

Prompted by ecological issues, the large industrial concerns decided to use special enzymes to induce the same worn effect on denim. Our Performing line embraces the innovative and eco-sustainable nature of this process and today is one of the best solutions on the market for creating the stone-washed effect.

Benefits:

Highly-concentrated powdered neutral cellulase for stonewash denim treatment (35-45°C).

cod. L11011

Powdered neutral cellulase for stonewash denim treatment (35-45°C).

cod. L11012

Liquid acid cellulase for stonewash denim treatment (50-60°C).

cod. L11010

Liquid neutral cellulase for stonewash denim treatment (25-30°C).

cod. L11013

Data Sheet

Bio Polishing

Treatment whereby the cellulase enzyme helps eliminate surface hairiness of fabrics, making the garment bright and shiny and the fabric texture softer and more pleasant to the touch.

Benefits:

Concentrated liquid cellulase for bio polishing treatment on acid pH denim and cotton.

cod. LI125C

Concentrated liquid cellulase for bio polishing treatment on neutral pH denim and cotton.

cod. LI125A

Data Sheet

Dispersing and Wetting

When stonewashing denim there is inevitably a release of indigo colour typical of the fabric. With the use of our dispersants we ensure the maintaining of the dyes in suspension thereby avoiding that they redeposit on the processed fabric (antiback staining).

Benefits:

Anti-redeposition agent in liquid form which prevents back staining during the denim and cotton washing stage.

cod. L1123E

Anti-redeposition agent in solid form which prevents back staining during the denim and cotton washing stage.

cod. L1123G

Data Sheet

Bleaching

Specific industrial treatment for lightening denim, removing colour on dyed garments, removing stains or yellowing.

There are several ways to treat denim, but the products must follow important parameters.

To date, the most commonly used substances are sodium hypochlorite and potassium permanganate.

Monte Chimica has studied a green solution for this type of treatment in conjunction with the world’s largest players.

Benefits:

Ecological formulation for low-temperature bleaching of DENIM and COTTON.

cod. L11094

Enzyme-based powdered formulation suitable for bleaching denim.
Use 60-70°C pH 4.5-5.5.

cod. L11094S

Eco-sustainable powdered product for the neutralisation of potassium permanganate.

cod. L11093

Eco-sustainable liquid product for the neutralisation of potassium permanganate.

cod. L11093L
