Acid Protease AP-6000 is produced from selected strains of Aspergillus niger through submerged fermentation, extraction and refining processes. It can catalyze hydrolysis of plant and animal proteins under acidic conditions .
AP-6000 has found its wide application in food industries, such as alcohol, fermentation and brewery, beer and wine production. It can also be used in leather processing, wool coloration and waste film recovery. It can be further processed into medical-grade protease as anti-inflammatory agents, digestion supplements, or protease reagents.

EFFECT OF PH
AP-6000 can work at pH ranging from 2.0 to 6.0. For maximum activity, its optimal pH range is 2.5 to 4.0 at 40°C, with an optimum pH at 3.0.
EFFECT OF TEMP
The optimal temperature range for AP-6000 is 30 to 50°C with 0.5% casein at pH around 3.0, and its optimum temperature is 40°C. AP-6000 is unstable above 50°C and inactivated quickly above 60°C.
In Leather Industry
Soften leather, enable easy dyeing, full hand-feel, improve leather and fur luster.
SAFETY & HANDLING
