Product Description

Ashland Captivates encapsulates are small particles that contain an active ingredient or core material surrounded by a shell or coating. Particle diameters generally range from a few microns to a few millimeters. Microencapsulated products may have different types of structures. These may be simple droplets of liquid core material surrounded by a spherical shell, or particles containing small droplets of core material dispersed in a continuous polymer shell matrix.

Typical applications for Ashland Captivates include aesthetic benefits and sensorial benefits, such as texture, as well as functional benefits such as delivery, protection, isolation, color change, fragrance or flavor release. Various trigger mechanisms to release the encapsulated material such as shear, pH, dilution, ion concentration or temperature are available.
