MicroBeads™ encapsulates

Chemistry: Encapsulates

MicroBeads encapsulates are produced with JetCutter Technology, using rotating cutting wires to create hydrogel beads from a continuous jet of viscous fluid. The resulting droplets are transformed into solidified beads through immersion in a bath of hardening solution. This produces a uniform bead matrix that can contain high levels of encapsulated material. Naturally-derived materials such as chitosan, alginate and carrageenan can be used as the matrix material.

MicroBeads encapsulates are produced in sizes ranging from 250 μm to 3,000 μm in diameter. They can be used to encapsulate a wide range of materials, including oils, pigments and harmless bacteria. Delivery triggers vary from dilution to pressure and temperature. Recently developed wax-based MicroBeads encapsulates have been designed with melting points as high as 70°C to 75°C.
