Advanced Technology Improves Color Incorporation and Performance
Solves Formulation Challenges
For years, Sensient’s Microfine™ technology has been simplifying complex development for brands in multiple segments.
Phase Applicability Solutions
Standard water-soluble colors are incompatible with oil-based applications. The Microfine™ technology bridges this gap to provide vibrant natural colors across the whole rainbow that tackle issues like specking, bleeding, and reduced vibrancy.
Microfine™ products fully coat dry powders without the use of high shear blending or spray drying for vibrant particle plating. Without this technology, a standard powder color solution would appear as salt-and-pepper specking throughout the powder application.
Microfine™ Dispersions: Easier Than Ever
The next evolution of Microfine™ is the introduction of dispersions into Sensient’s global color portfolio.
Microfine™ Dispersions further improve ease-of-use for customers in plant production.
A dispersion is the suspension of insoluble color particles in a variety of liquid systems.
Microfine™ Dispersions make it easier and faster for color to be mixed into applications like ice cream bases, confections, and fat-based coatings and icings.
The rainbow was already possible with Microfine™, now that rainbow is even more effortless to implement than ever before.
In this liquid format, Microfine™ Dispersions have all the benefits of Microfine™ as well as the simplicity of adding a liquid product in production compared to a powder.
Less mixing is required, and these colors can be incorporated fully without specialty plant equipment and without dust concerns, reducing clean up.
Microfine™ Beats “Micronized” Market Alternatives
Although micronized colors in the market may perform better than standard powder colors, Microfine™ still leads the industry in overall color performance.
Standard Powder Color
Micronized powders have a smaller particle size overall but present a wide range of actual particle sizes within the product.
Sensient’s proprietary Microfine™ technology maintains a strict particle size distribution within the powder color to provide more color intensity per kilogram. This improvement lowers the cost-in-use of color for our customers and increases color vibrancy in the finished good.
