Aerosol devised for high viscosity products

5 Jun 2012

An aerosol has been released to handle viscous formulas needed for household and other products.

The manufacturers claim that the Truspray technology has low flow rates. Its reduced need for propellant and solvent allows for compact packaging that saves on materials and transportation cost.

It is being marketed at viscous gels, malady malady waxes, buy concentrates, deodorants and more.

The LINDAL Group is a manufacturer of valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products.

LINDAL Group?s TRUSPRAY is based upon the principle of capillary atomization, a highly efficient, four-phase, method of aerosol formation.

The process requires no flow-inhibiting swirl chambers or atomizer jets. The energy generated with each actuation is fully-utilized, for more complete aerosol formation that requires less propellant.

With TRUSPRAY, a standard valve is paired with a capillary tube. Upon actuation, product rises up the capillary wall, with only minimal use of propellant. Tiny droplets are ?torn? from the formulation by the flowing propellant and travel ? as aerosol ? through the spray head?s bent capillary tube and out, as an even, deep, mist. With flow rates as high as 1g/10 sec., even hard-to-atomize bulk can be efficiently dispensed.

The efficiency of the TRUSPRAY technology permits a wide range of highly viscous products to be offered in aerosol form, with reduced propellant and solvent use and more compact overall package dimensions.

As a result, product development opportunities are opened in a wide range of product subcategories, including cosmetics and body care; sun protection; hair care and styling; household products and technical products.

?For example, viscous personal care products such as creams and lotions are easier to dispense and use,? said LINDAL Group?s MD Robert Brands. ?Suncare SPF products ? whether oil, lotion, cream or gel ? can be sprayed on evenly, with no missed spots, drips or waste, in compact, easily packed cans.

?Air travelers, too, will appreciate the reduced package size and enhanced convenience, along with users of household- and specialized products for the car or outdoors, such as waxes and pastes. The end-user experience is enhanced, the economic efficiencies are increased ? and the need for less propellant and solvent, and reduced pack size, makes a statement and a real impact in today?s eco-conscious marketplace.
