Gem'innov is a company focused on the constant improvement of its products. This is why we are currently in the middle of an ambitious program to develop products with better regulatory and environmental qualities. For already 10 years we have been able to produce the first range of bisphenol A-free microcapsules, symbolizing our commitment to a greener company policy.
Gem'innov produces the first ever BIODEGRADABLE and BIOCOMPATIBLE microcapsule that will meet in advance the future European Union standards for Microplastics for 2022.
We have developed the first range of thermochromic microcapsules WITHOUT BISPHENOL A..
Our standard melamine-formaldehyde microcapsules undergo several successive treatments to reduce the level of free formaldehyde. We are proud to offer powdered microcapsules that release less than 5ppm of formaldehyde into the environment.
Our microcapsules and masterbatch range do not contain heavy metals and comply with toy & food contact standards: Europe - Resolution AP (89)1 Council of Europe Resolution AP (89)1 and EU Standard EN 71 Germany / Swizerland - IX BfR ; UK - SI 1275 Japan - JHPA (9TH revision, March 1989), JHOSPA (1995 edition, Part 2) USA - (FDA) 21 Part 177 and ASTM F 963-92
We have developed specific powder drying processes, which guarantee an absence of aggregates and exceptional fluidity. This allows an easy integration of our powders into inks or paints.
We produce thermochromic microcapsules from one to twenty microns in diameter. When integrated into printing inks, they offer a colour intensity comparable to that of standard products.
