Bleaching

Decoloring agents for local or total applications

Bleaching is a chemical, or biochemical, process to degrade indigo and reduce the color of denim fabrics.

Bleaching agents remove the color via oxidation or reduction, giving the garment a stylish or vintage look.

Bleaching grade and discoloration usually depend on the strength of the bleaching agent, liquor quantity, temperature and treatment duration.

Traditionally, the most used substances are sodium hypochlorite and potassium permanganate.

However, these substances are dangerous for wildlife and for humans.
