Microencapsulation of inks for triggered release or particles for use in electronic devices.
Encapsulated leuco dyes were first used in carbonless copy paper and thermal inks. Today the massive ink industry continues to innovate and develop and microencapsulation plays a major role in product development work. At Micropore we have patented processes and systems capable of providing triggered release of ink on application or particles that can be used in electronic devices.
• Product innovation, novel delivery systems.
• Enhanced processability.
• Allows formulation with ingredients that are usually incompatible.
• Higher loading of active than traditional encapsulation methods, such as spray drying.
• Triggered release.
We provide a service to develop the best release profile for your ingredients and products; using our expertise in encapsulation and formulation technology based on our membrane emulsification processes. Our technology provides highly uniform ink capsules, typically in the range of 15µm upwards, sized to meet precise client requirements.
Micropore's processes are designed to be scalable - from laboratory formulation testing to production tonnages. This enables meaningful laboratory data to be used to scale a process to production volumes.
The system is easy to control and has a lower factory space requirement than conventional stirred tank technology.
The Micropore patented technology provides uniform droplets and particles with 100% production success in the desired size range. Compared to conventional manufacturing techniques there is no waste, which results in significantly lower energy and waste disposal costs.
Reliability and Reproducibility:
Micropore’s technology enables highly reliable and reproducible production of batches of materials. This is especially important in production environments when pH is adjusted; our techniques lead to no 'bad batches’ to be disposed of.
The Micropore systems are easy to control and do not require time consuming and costly specialist operator training.
High Viscosity Materials:
Micropore technology is ideal for the production of creams and pastes and provides exceptionally good mixing even of high viscosity materials.
