To ensure flexible, uniform, breathable and long lasting repellent coating layers, textiles can be manufactured by optimized finishing aolutions including active capsules as a component.
The market for such application ranges from military uses to people working in agriculture, forestry and construction or simply individuals going for hikes, etc. Tick-borne encephalitis, and more recently, the Zika virus, are dangerous insect-borne that could be avoided with the right clothing. This allows BioCapSOL the opportunity to offer natural and safe alternatives to toxic synthetic insect repellent applications at an affordable cost level.
