In conventional dehairing processes, pelts and animals skins are treated with lime and sodium sulfide. Recently, as an alternative to chemical dehairing, enzyme based dehairing has been chosen for its ability to produce the same results in a completely ecological way. When Xylamel is added into the pelts it provides 100% melanin removal and assists in fibre opening during enzymatic dehairing and deliming all in a relatively short period of time.
Xylamel is a soluble powder product specifically designed for melanin removal on raw animal skins.
Xylamel contains xylanase, protease and cellulase enzymes. It covers neutral, alkaline, and acidic enzyme activities. Xylanase has been used as an efficient enzyme based treatment during dehairing and fibre opening processes for pigment removal.
Results reported on Gemsbok backskins treated with Xylamel shows 100 % melanin removal under a pH of 7.0 and an ambient temperature around 65-70 F°. The pelts had been through a deliming process prior the enzyme application. Here are some images for the pelt treated with Xylamel.
