Captivates™ HC encapsulates

Ashland makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Captivates™ HC encapsulates are core/shell microcapsules produced via complex coacervation using naturally derived gelatin and acacia (gum arabic) as the principal wall materials; they range from 15 μm to 2000 μm in diameter. Captivates HC encapsulates with a minimum diameter above 250 μm can be used in otherwise clear or homogeneously opaque carriers to provide a striking visual impact while delivering actives or other ingredients with beneficial properties. Smaller microcapsules in the 15 μm to 50 μm range and can be used to deliver fragrances or other lipophilic active ingredients onto substrates such as fabrics or hard surfaces. The optimization of size, core content and wall structure allows the properties of the microcapsules to be controlled and used in a wide range of formulations.
