Vantage specializes in helping today’s companies provide better products to their customers through the power of encapsulation. Encapsulation takes a material, whether it be a solid, liquid or gas, and surrounds it with a membrane or holds it within a matrix. Vantage offers core/shell and matrix encapsulation systems to provide greater flexibility to our customers, so you can deliver better products to yours.
Where Encapsulation Is Seen
Any industry creating products can benefit from encapsulation. Encapsulation technology is often seen in the cosmetics industry. Fragrance printing is another area where encapsulation enhances products. In industrial settings, coatings, lubricants and many other materials can benefit from encapsulation. Food grade encapsulation allows food manufacturers to improve the function and appeal of their products. No matter what your industry is, encapsulation can help in several ways, including…
- Sometimes manufacturers need to combine two materials that are not compatible in a single formulation. By protecting one component in a membrane or matrix, the two components can be mixed to be used together, eliminating compatibility issues. The technology protects unstable or volatile materials so they do not break down in the formulation before they are needed.
- Sometimes materials are hard to handle because they have a high viscosity or are a liquid that would work better in a solid form. Encapsulation allows these free-flowing liquids to be changed into a free-flowing powder or other similar form. Encapsulation allows the essence of the particle, including the particle size, to be changed without actually changing the material.
- In many industries, from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals, the ability to control the release of a material is necessary. Smart products from Vantage allow you to determine when a product is released. We will create the technology that allows release of the product when a specific criteria is reached, such as a certain temperature, pH or mechanical force applied to the product. This means the component is available exactly when it is needed, and protected when it is not ready to be used.
Encapsulation Is Both Science and Art
- While encapsulation is incredibly scientific in its essence, it’s also an art form. Each application requires a unique approach and technology. Vantage understands this and uses our experience and knowledge to create a custom design for your specific application.
