Milliken acquires Encapsys LLC

October 20/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Milliken has acquired microencapsulation firm Encapsys from the Cypress Performance Group, the US specialty chemicals company announced in its press-release.

Encapsys makes technology to produce a polymeric shell around a core material at micron level to create capsules, used in applications across industries to improve sustainability of active materials.

Wisconsin-based Encapsys will be integrated into Milliken without interrupting services, including relationships with existing suppliers and customers.

“Encapsys brings a unique combination of innovation, science and technology to the Milliken team,” adds Cindy Boiter, executive vice president and president of Milliken’s Chemical Business. “Enhancing our portfolio of specialty chemicals with global reach, this acquisition will accelerate sustainable solutions for the markets and customers we serve.”

As Encapsys integrates into Milliken, daily operations will continue without interruption, including relationships with existing suppliers and customers. Headquartered in Appleton, Wis., Encapsys is a leader in microencapsulation technologies, which put a uniform polymeric shell around a core material at the micron level to create capsules. Microencapsulation has applications across industries and helps companies achieve more sustainable products by advancing responsible consumption and efficient delivery of active materials.

We also remind that at Hispack 2018 trade fair in Spain, Milliken Chemical showcased containers of NX UltraClear polypropylene (PP) made using its Millad NX 8000 clarifier, and highlighted why that material is the preferred solution for packaging.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 841,990 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, up by 29% year on year. Supply of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas supply of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) subsided.

Milliken is an innovation company that has been exploring, discovering, and creating ways to enhance people’s lives since 1865. The company creates coatings, specialty chemicals, and advanced additive and colorant technologies that transform the way we experience products from automotive plastics to children's art supplies.
