Significantly reducing pilling, biopolishing gives garments a shiny and bright look, making the fabric texture more obvious, and provides a more pleasant hand feel.

An incorrect procedure or an inadequate enzyme can give problems of indigo back-staining and reduce the fabric’s mechanical strength.

Garmon’s solutions for biopolishing are specifically developed to provide:

  • minimal indigo bleeding
  • less back-staining
  • brighter shades and higher contrast in abraded areas
  • less corrosion of metal accessories
  • minimal environmental impact

They are designed to work in low and medium temperatures, in acid or neutral conditions.
