Calyshield®

Calyshield microcapsules encapsulate functional additives for improved performance and enhanced functionalities.

Calyshield-a product of calyxia

Calyshield microcapsules perfectly integrate into your material and disperse evenly.  We encapsulate lubricants, flame retardants, UV absorbers, antioxidants, pigments and many more.

With Calyshield, you can avoid secondary reactions or limited compatibility and undesired migration.

Calyshield microcapsules can be activated by shear, pressure, or temperature to release your functional ingredient at the optimum time during processing. An example of this: Calyshield-L lubricants can be released upon shear abrasion, providing lubrication at the moment of greatest friction. This enables longer-lasting products with lower use of lubricant.
