Horizon fragrances & deodorants are available in three physical forms: liquid, powder, and bead. Typical addition rates are 0.1% to 0.5%, depending upon physical form & application. Industrial, cosmetic, and food-contact grades are available.
Polypowders: dry, free-flowing powders typically containing 56% concentrated fragrance & deodorant. The carrier is an inorganic synthetic, amorphous silicon dioxide (CAS #112926-00-8), and food grade (FEMA#1115). It absorbs fragrance oil and aids dispersion in the polymer.
All Polypowders are MTO with a 25lb MOQ. Polypowders may opacify the final product.
Polybeads: EVA beads of uniform size and a softening point of about 88C-110C. Polybeads usually contain 20% concentrated fragrance by weight. They are the preferred product when liquids & inorganic powders cause mixing and dispersing problems. Polybeads may also be used “as is” in air fresheners, potpourris, and environmental fragrancing. Polybeads are not recommended for use with styrene, K-resin, or polycarbonate systems.
All Polybeads are MTO with a 25lb MOQ. Cosmetic & Food-grade versions are available.
