Microcapsules are an imperceptible solution to noticeable problems.
Microencapsulation is a complex technique that involves incorporating active compounds – liquids, solids or gases – in tiny protective spheres (microcapsules) having an average diameter as small as Ø 0.5 to 10 µm. The microcapsules look like powder to the naked eye. The coating (shell), which is smaller than the width of human hair, creates a barrier isolating and protecting active compounds from the external environment.
We can programme the microcapsule shells to allow the controlled release of encapsulated substances – release at the right place and at the right time, and under certain conditions to suit specific needs. We are the only ones on the market producing programmed-shell microcapsules.
