3. Applications

A. Available Products & Applicability
B. Scented Slurry

a. Product Description

Scented slurry is microencapsulated aqueous dispersion with good dispersal in water, suitable for water based paint. The average particle size of the slurry is 3-10µm.

Its solid content is difficult to be measured due to the volatilizing property of fragrance.

b. Properties

Dispersed easily in water, that means the product is suitable for aqueous based paint/ink and screen printing.

c. Recommended Concentrations

For aqueous based ink/paint                        5%~30% w/w
(For best results, about 25% concentration is required for 20µm film thickness)

d. General Recommendations

Avoid strong smell ink/paint which may interfere the scent.

Slurry may get clotted during storage. Heating the slurry to 45℃ in a double boiler to disperse.

C. Scented Microcapsulated Powder

a. Product Description

The product is multi-formulated, containing moisture ≦ 3%. Its average particle size is 3-12µm.

b. Properties

The product is encapsulated with Melamine shells, with very good solvent resistance and dispersiveness, suitable for ink/paint and plastic injection/extrusion.

c. Recommended Concentrations

For solvent/aqueous based ink/paint                  5%~30% w/w
(For best results, about 25% concentration is required for 20µm film thickness)

For plastic injection/extrusion                1% ~5% w/w
(For best results, about 0.5% concentration is required for 0.2cm plastic thickness)

d. General Recommendations

For injection/extrusion, using plastic needed to be processed at low temperatures such as EVA, PU, and so on.

To avoid solvents affecting core fragrance through permeation, solvent based scented paint/ink should be used right after being prepared.

D. Scented Dye bath

a. Product Description

Scented dye bath comprises of scented slurry and silicon (high efficiency adhesives), suitable for dipping and spraying.

b. Properties

Function as fragrance enhancement, softener and bactericide.

Durable over 10 washes.

c. Recommended Concentrations

Pre-diluted 20~50 times before use. Enhance concentration for stronger scent.

d. General Recommendations

Avoid prolonged processing time which may affect the scent properties.

The recommended processing temperature is ≦ 140℃.
