Orgasol® is a range of ultra fine polyamide powders designed for industrial and cosmetics applications. Theses powders present both a spherical shape and an extremely narrow particle size distribution. The unique production process ensures that Orgasol® powders are very different than those of ground powders.
- Virtually spherical shape
- Narrow particle size distribution
- Texturing agent
- Matifying agent
- Easily formulating
Two distinct applications
Orgasol® polyamide powders are divided into two major ranges of products with distinct specifications:
- Cosmetic portfolio
- Industrial portolio
Orgasol® powders are unique porous microspheres that give a creamy and velvety feel to formulations. Furthermore, the very high remanence on the skin offers a nice touch and long lasting.
Thanks to their adjustable particle sizes and absorption capacities, the Orgasol® range meets the expectations of the cosmetic market segments.
Today, Orgasol® ultrafine poyamids powders are used and recognized for its unique properties in many formulations: skin care, make up, hair care, toiletries, sun care
By bridging the gap between the chemistry of textures and the physics of particles, Orgasol® is revolutionizing the art of formulation. This innovate range of products invite creative industry professionals to develop more cutting edge formulas.
- Aesthetic enhancer
- Active powders
- Silky powdery texture
- Good compaction
- Sebum reduction
- Soft focus
Orgasol® ultrafine polyamide powders are used as additive in various markets: Coatings paints, inks and overprint varnishes (OPV) markets, composite and inkjet transfer papers markets... These polyamide powders are also a key material for laser sintering.
Arkema has developed Orgasol® Ultrafine powders for their abrasion and scratch resistances as well as their surface texturing effect, gloss control and anti-blocking properties.
Due to this unique process, Orgasol® powders are available as micro-porous spherical beads with a very narrow particle size distribution. The grades are differentiated depending on polyamide type (PA 6, PA 12, PA 6/12), particle size (5 to 60 µm), melting point and specific surface area.
- High abrasion and scratch resistance
- Gloss control and mar resistance
- Texturing effects
- Recoat ability
