The enzymes used in textile printing and dyeing mainly include cellulase, amylase, pectinase, lipase, peroxidase, laccase/glucose oxidase and so on.

First, cellulase (biopolishing enzymes):

Cellulase (beta-1,4-glucan-4-glucan hydrolase) is a group of enzymes that degrade cellulose to produce glucose, which is not a monomer enzyme, but a synergistic multi-component enzyme system. It is a complex enzyme, mainly composed of exogenous beta-glucanase, endo-beta-glucanase and beta-glucosidase and xylanase with high activity. It acts on cellulose and is the product derived from cellulose.
Cellulase is commonly known as depilating agent, biopolishing enzymes, depilating agent, wool eater, etc. Reference: Charging 3 minutes a day | Types and applications of Cellulase

Second, pectinase:

Pectinase is also a kind of complex enzyme, which refers to a variety of enzymes that decompose pectin. Pectinase is mainly composed of pectin lyase, pectin esterase, polygalacturonase and pectate lyase. Pectinase is mainly used in the pretreatment and scouring of cotton and hemp fibers. It is compounded with other enzymes , so it is called scouring enzyme.

Third, lipase:

Lipase can hydrolyze fat into glycerol and fatty acids, and fatty acids can further oxidize to synthesize sugars.
Lipase is mainly used in textile industry to degrease textile raw materials and improve their properties. Lipase is mainly used to treat wool fibers and remove some lipids from wool, which can change the physical and chemical properties of wool fibers and improve the quality of wool.
PS: Protease is also used in wool, mainly for shrink-proof finishing of wool fabrics.

Fourth, catalase:

Catalase, an enzyme that catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water, exists in the peroxide of cells. Catalase is the marker of peroxisome enzyme, accounting for about 40% of the total peroxisome enzyme. Catalase exists in various tissues of all known animals, especially in the liver with high concentration.
Catalase in the printing and dyeing industry is commonly known as deoxidase, and now there are two main types of use: animal liver catalase and plant catalase, of which the latter performance is better!

Fifth, amylase:

Amylase is the general name of enzymes that hydrolyze starch and glycogen. It usually hydrolyzes starch sizes on fabrics by amylase catalysis. Because of the high efficiency and specificity of amylase, the desizing rate of enzymatic desizing is high, the desizing rate is fast, the pollution is less, the products are softer than acid and alkali methods, and the fibers are not damaged.
Amylase is commonly known as desizing enzyme in printing and dyeing industry. It can be divided into room temperature desizing enzyme, medium temperature desizing enzyme, high temperature desizing enzyme and wide temperature desizing enzyme according to different temperature.

Sixth, laccase/glucose oxidase:

Laccase is an oxidoreductase, which can be used in the antique finishing of denim garments by genetically modified Aspergillus Niger laccase. The obtained fabric has a thick handle, a smooth surface, a bright color and elegance. Glucose oxidase is mainly used for bleaching of fabrics. This enzyme treatment is very effective for the production of hydrogen peroxide. It makes the treated fabrics feel soft and full without adding hydrogen peroxide stabilizer.
