Capsulated Systems, Inc is proud of our reputation in the microencapsulation industry, and we stand by our more than three decades of experience in the field. We have a pilot plant operation that can make batches of ten pounds each. Our manufacturing is done through a CSI/AIM Joint Venture at the computerized production facility in Miamisburg, OH. The plant has an annual capacity of one million pounds of dry capsules and five million pounds of capsules in slurry form. This capacity can easily be quadrupled in the same facility with minimal additional equipment. In addition, CSI maintains a production facility in Springfield, OH that has an annual capacity of 125,000 pounds of dry capsules.

AVCAP and MACAP Macroencapsulation Coating

While working on some projects requiring particularly strong, impermeable capsule walls, scientists at CSI theorized that a version of the wall material might be applied as a macroencapsulation conformal coating. This idea has fostered an extraordinarily successful program, a patent and certification of a resultant conformal coating for electronic circuits(AVCAP) for the Department of Defense Qualified Products List for MIL-I-46058C which permits its use for protection of sensitive and valuable defense electronics equipment.

The macroencapsulation conformal coatings systems developed at CSI meet the challenges of moisture and humidity protection of electronic hardware. CSI's macroencapsulation process uses an organic polymer which wraps itself around the surface to be encapsulated to provide uniform protection from contamination. It is easily applied by dip, brush or spray techniques. Some of it's advantages are:

  • Superior Moisture/Oxygen Resistance
  • Pin-Hole Free Coating
  • Flexibility
  • Repairability
  • Excellent Adhesion
  • Protection of Electromigration
  • Excellent Heat Dissipation
  • Thermal Shock Resistance
  • Transparency (UV Tint Available)
  • Thin Film, 1 -2 mils
  • No Shrinkage
  • No Cracking (no plasticizers)
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Easy, Low-Cost Application
  • Compatibility with Other Coatings for Repair/Rework Purposes(Urethanes and Epoxies)

    Additionally, MACAP, a similar product to AVCAP, is being tested as a protective coating for metal structural components (concrete reinforcement bars, bridge and building beams, etc.) Results, thus far, are excellent. MACAP's superior adhesion qualities, pin-hole free coating, moisture/humidity resistance and thermal shock resistance properties exhibit promise that it may be the corrosion inhibition system of the future.

    Finally, this polymeric material provides CSI with a unique capability to microencapsulate aqueous based materials heretofore unheard of. Such materials as water/glycerine, sulfuric acid(2% concentration), sodium hydroxide(5% concentration), and pesticides can now be encapsulated and isolated into a free flowing powder using this patented system.
