Ambition, dedication and courage.
It takes all three to create something truly innovative and revolutionary - something that stands out from the crowd.
kemzymes is the first line of enzymes created specifically for denim garment washing, offering an unparalleled combination of sustainability, performance and cost competitiveness.
Kemin Industries acquired Garmon Chemicals in 2018 with the goal of revolutionizing the garment finishing industry. In this merged path, the science of Kemin joined the expertise of Garmon, moving research forward that was once only a dream for Garmon's customers.
kemzymes comes from long hours of testing and developments, both in the laboratory and in the laundry. We believe that there are no shortcuts to achieve success, especially when the goal is so ambitious.
Relentlessly tested by dedicated teams with the most modern equipment available, kemzymes looked to Garmon's historical success with enzymes and improved on every aspect possible.
The long phase of development created enzymes that, compared to Garmon's old range, offer outstanding performance at room temperature, but at a more competitive price.
The market is saturated with options that promise everything, but don't deliver. Performance was the key element when developing kemzymes. Sustainabile enzymes that offer beautiful vintage looks was the minimum - we raised the bar on everything else.
*tests were conducted in Garmon's laboratory, comparing the abrasion performance of kemzyme ks40 with the most concentrated enzymes for stone washing supplied by leading chemical companies. The washes have been performed with a wascator, using the recommended parameters, and the abrasion of denim samples was measured by the lightness detected with a spectophotometer with the Color Space CIELab parameters. The comparison with Garmon's old line refers to powder product for stone washing comparable in terms of dosage and price range.
The concentrated version of our new neutral cellulase enzymes for denim stone washing. The strength of kemzymes ks eliminates the need for the use of pumice stones. Designed to work at room temperature.
The new generation powder of neutral cellulase enzymes for the stone washing of denim. Starting at room temperature.
Innovative stonewashing enzyme in powder form, optimized for very low liquor-ratio applications. Produces a strong abrasion and rich contrasts on denim garments.
Our innovative biopolishing agent in powder form. Great performance and superior stability than liquid formulations. Temperature range: 30-50°C.
Our innovative desizing agent in powder form. Great performance and superior stability than liquid formulations. Temperature range: 30-50°C.
Powder enzyme for stonewashing treatments with very low liquor-ratio applications. Thanks to its properties, kemzyme max effectively replaces the use of pumice stones. Formula optimized for a riduced back-staining.
Our strongest enzyme for denim desizing and stonewashing in the same bath, at the same time. Optimized for traditional bath applications. Active at room temperature, at 50°C it also performs a light bleaching of the garments.
