The Battelle Smart Laundry Capsule™ Additive
Can bleaches and activators come together in one highly effective laundry product? With the Battelle Smart Laundry Capsule additive, the activator is safely mixed right in with your bleach products within a biodegradable capsule for one-step, high efficiency cold-water bleaching power.
Battelle uses microencapsulation technology to create shelf-stable products that combine formerly incompatible ingredients. All of this adds up to an environmentally friendly product that enables better cleaning in cold water, with the added benefit of energy savings.
Need a one-step solution for bleach and activation?
To be effective, bleach is traditionally used in hot water and requires the consumer to add it at a certain point in the wash cycle. Battelle’s encapsulation technology enables consumers to effectively use bleach not only in just one step, but also when they wash clothes in cold water.
The Battelle Smart Laundry Capsule additive safely encloses the activator in a tiny capsule, so it can be mixed in with your bleach product. The capsule is made of a special polymer that dissolves when the bleach and soap are dissolved in water, so the activator reaches the bleach at the exact time that it is needed. And since the polymer capsule is completely biodegradable, there are no leftover beads washed into the water supply.
Benefits of this technology include consumer convenience, as well as energy and cost savings.
