Alkapro 400 Powder is a microprilled, free-flowing dry preparation of Bacillus spp. which includes high concentrations of alkaline (serine) proteinase (protein digesting enzyme). Proteinases catalyze the hydrolysis of protein polymers into their component amino acids and peptides. While the complex polymeric protein in its original form may be practically insoluble, the amino acid components are more readily soluble or emulsifiable in aqueous solutions. Alkapro has many applications over the pH range of 6.0-10.5. It is extremely resistant to the effects of chelating agents and detergents and is very rigorous and nonspecific in its degrading effects.
PURPOSE: As a concentrated source of hydrolytic, protein-degrading enzymes for use in industrial applications including x-ray film processing for silver recovery, industrial equipment cleaning and maintenance, in detergents and prespotters, and many other applications where broad range proteolytic activity is desired.
