Are all microcaps the same?

The answer is no.
Microencapsulated products use different formulations and the quality of microcaps can vary.
This jeopardizes the effectiveness of the formulation and ultimately the results you will be able to provide to your customers.

Dual-walled construction protects the active ingredient
Microcaps of multiple sizes provide immediate and residual control
10,000 microcaps means more insect exposure
An analysis of competitive microcap products versus iCAP technology from Syngenta reveals several key differences. When competitive microcaps were subjected to high temperatures and pressures, they often ruptured, distended or rapidly released their active ingredient. When subjected to the same conditions, Syngenta microcaps retained their integrity and released the active ingredient steadily over time to ensure longer residual control.
