Micapoly® UV is a range of composite materials based on muscovite mica and physical UV-filters. Micapoly® UV Crystals are platelet shaped particles with a mica matrix and a double layer of ultrafine Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide, which are sealed on the mica surfaces with a polymer.
As Micapoly® UV Crystals are platelet shaped, they adhere well on the skin and provide long lasting UV-protection. The particle size of Micapoly® UV Crystals is around 20 microns. Micapoly® UV Crystals are suitable for colour care applications and powdery types of sunscreen products for providing UV-protection.
