Captivates™ A encapsulates are made using a novel fragrance encapsulation process that utilizes acrylate chemistry. Where alternative fragrance encapsulation processes use formaldehyde or isocyanates to cross-link the polymer shells, neither are utilized in the process of making Captivates™ A encapsulates. Produced in the size range of 5–25 microns, Captivates™ A fragrance encapsulates show outstanding performance in terms of fragrance capture and long term release. They are available with a range of fragrances, but can also be customized in terms of fragrance type, shell strength and release profile. view less

The resulting droplets are transformed into solidified beads through various gelation techniques including thermal gelation and ion exchange — producing a uniform bead matrix that can contain high levels of encapsulated material. Naturally derived materials such as agar, gellan gum, alginate and carrageenan are used as the matrix material. Captivates GL encapsulates are produced in sizes ranging from 250 μm to 3000 μm in diameter and can be used to encapsulate a wide range of materials including oils, pigments, abrasives and harmless bacteria. Delivery triggers include dilution, pressure and pH. view less
Captivates™ HC encapsulates Ashland 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. view less
