bating agent with anti-wrinkling effect. Rockenzyme ANWA is a bacterial protease produced by submerged fermentation of a Bacillus Sp. strain especially suitable for wet blue re-bating.
Rockenzyme ANWA is an enzyme-based bating agent with an optimum efficiency at a pH range of 3-5.5. it can be used up to temperatures of 55˚C. Its dosage should be around 0.3 – 0.5% of hide and skin weight. In all cases, it is suggested that Rockenzyme
ANWA should be evaluated in small scale before going full stream in order to detect its best dosage in the process.

Application & Recommendation

Wet blue can be treated with Rockenzyme ANWA to level out the differences of the raw material and to improve the evenness and shade intensification of the dyeing. Also, when our wet blue needs extra bating, it is getable by this agent. An acidic bate with Rockenzyme ANWA is particularly recommended for wet blue showing a very compact and irregular fiber structure such as calf or goat skins.
It improves the evenness of the leather due to a better opening up of the fibers. Using of Rockenzyme
ANWA often expands the cuttable area (yield area) to the normally loose belly area. General recommendations for the use of
