Applications A few of the applications developed by MCT are listed below. Some are in their early stages and others have been widely marketed for some time now. The main markets involved are: Cosmetics Cosmetotextiles Paper and non-woven Graphic arts Odor maskers and deodorants Food products Laundry Products MICROCAPSULES FOR THE COSMETICS INDUSTRY The Microsil® microcapsules, with their shell made of silicone copolymers, were specifically designed for this industry. All of the tests performed by a well-known laboratory in its hardest-to-use form (cationic microcapsules containing a caffeine organic solution) show excellent skin acceptance and flawless toxicology so that these microcapsules can be considered to be hypoallergenic. They can have an anionic (Type s and IS) or cationic (Type SK and ISK) charge In their dry form, they can easily be admixed to makeup formulations. Lipophilic actives: UV Filters Retinol Oils of borage seed, shea butter, aloe-vera, etc… For skin care products, lotions, ointments, shampoos, shower gels, deodorants, etc. Hydrophilic actives: DHA Xylitol Peptides The GG Microcapsules obtained through complex coacervation are large colorable microcapsules (up to 2 mm in diameter), and add an aesthetic effect to the efficacy of the active principle they contain. MICROCAPSULES FOR THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY Ever since it was created, MCT has produced melamine-based microcapsules containing perfumes and essential oils for the textile industry, as well as cationic gelatin-containing microcapsules for the needs of cosmetotextiles. Substantial recent advances in encapsulation for the cosmetics industry have resulted in the development of functionalized silicone microcapsules (patent filed) specially suited to "cosmetotextiles" due to their perfect chemical compatibility with the skin. Cationic microcapsules (SK) show superior affinity to textile fibers, allowing near 100% fixation rate and good wash resistance. Binders are available to further increase this resistance for even higher requirements. The IS and ISK forms allow fixation of aqueous actives to textiles. With our partners in the cosmetics industry, we have developed a wide range of microcapsules for textile applications, that contain actives formulated for tights, panties, socks and underwear, with efficiency been proven by tests carried out according to strictly controlled protocols applied according to the accepted practice. MICROCAPSULES FOR PAPERS AND NONWOVENS This is the ideal field of action for our Company because of the knowledge it has acquired with self-copying paper. Microcapsules are generally surface-deposited through coating or spraying. Once they are functionalized they develop strong affinity to paper fibers and therefore, can be incorporated within the paper or nonwoven batch. Based on these various techniques we can manufacture: cleaning, polishing, disinfecting dry towelettes scented, hydrating or decongestant tissues hygienic products (pH or moisture-activated microcapsules) safety paper (such as the EDICODE form produced with the LATA Company) GRAPHIC ARTS The microcapsules produced by MCT can be deposited on paper, cardboard or plastic substrates through various printing techniques, such as: Screen printing Offset printing Photogravure Flexography Generally employed in water-based inks, but formulas for UV and plastisol inks are available. ODOR MASKERS AND LAUNDRY PRODUCTS A whole range of mechanically breakable or permeation microcapsules was developed for these uses. Spray formulas are available for public and private areas. 8G microcapsules, which are entirely transparent and of the permeation type, are particularly attractive as they only require two applications per week for a permanent effect. LAUNDRY PRODUCTS Microcapsules adapted to the various environments in which they are used, such as cleaners, detergents, textile softeners, are available. The cationic forms allow efficient fixation to textiles, thus providing remarkable effects when they contain perfumes. All the above applications are available as a formaldehyde free product. PHYTOSANITARY Many specific industrial applications have been developed for infected countries, such as permeating and biodegradable gelatin-based microcapsules. Insecticides, repellents, disinfectants. FOOD-GRADE PRODUCTS MCT has developed a line of food-grade gelatin-based microcapsules ranging from 0.3 to 1.5 mm in diameter, that can be dried and offered as a colored or colorless flowing powder. This line is mainly for encapsulating brittle or volatile ingredients, such as essential oils, highly unsaturated oils, aromas and food adjuncts.
