THAT’S MICRO­ENCAPSULATION.

OUR SPECIALITY

MICRO­ENCAPSULATION

Microencapsulation is the process of forming a shell around a microscopic particle (think of it as a strong bubble that protects the core) and infusing it into products to make everyday life better.

It’s an innovative technology used in laundry products, personal care products, air-care, nutraceuticals (such as vitamins and protein powders), fertilizers, crop protection, bedding, textiles and drug delivery. The benefits of microencapsulation prove long-lasting freshness, controlled release, protect the core, protect the end user and never break to hold a core like phase change to provide cool sensation in clothes and bedding.

The perfect capsule

Below is a cross-section of a microcapsule with a shell specifically engineered by Encapsys to maximize the delivery and power of the core. This capsule is 20 microns – 5,000 of them clustered together would appear as just a small dot to the naked eye.

Our techniques

HOW WE DO MICROENCAPSULATION

There are two microencapsulation techniques — chemical and physical.

At Encapsys, we use highly engineered chemical microencapsulation techniques like coacervation, interfacial polymerization and in situ polymerization to form a unique wall around material that provides the required properties your product needs.

And we do it with accuracy, getting a high percentage of the core inside the capsule. It’s how we achieve optimal-level product performance.

UNIQUE RELEASES

Every application requires varying degrees of function, so determining a release profile to increase control is one of the most important steps of microencapsulation.

SLOW RELEASE

The diffusion of material overtime helps increase efficiency of the material.

TARGETED RELEASE

Triggers such as UV light, temperature and pH levels control the release of materials

NO RELEASE

The shell must be impermeable, but flexible enough to allow property changes.


Your benefits

WHAT YOU WILL GET

Partnering with a group of industry-leading scientists has its advantages. Through microencapsulation, we will put your product’s characteristics into power drive so you are always one step ahead of your competitors.

We’ve successfully microencapsulated many different core materials across a variety of industries. But it’s only just the beginning.
