Once we know what the customer requires in a product, it is our time to shine. 3i Solutions' product development team will formulate a dispersion that meets all the customers requirements and specifications.  

3i Solutions uses years of experience and patented proprietary technology in making these dispersions. No other company in the world has the experience or capacity to make similar dispersion products.  Our proprietary technology is protected by numerous patents, owned or licenced by 3i Solutions.

3i Solutions' dispersion technology adds very important benefits to our customers' products.  But customers may also want, "natural", GMO-free, soy-free, or more clean-label friendly ingredients. Frequently, we can accomidate these additional requirements when formulating a final dispersion product.

How We Do it

All 3i Solutions samples and products start with reverse osmosis (RO) water.  If required, we have the capability to remove oxygen from the water for additional protection of active ingredients.

We begin with food grade ingredients in all of our formulations.  Lecithins and non-ionic surfactants are main building blocks for our dispersions.  Generally, an acidified preservative system is used to preserve against microbiological contamination.  If needed, additional ingredients can be included to the active material to support oxidative stability.

3i Solutions' dispersion products are then processed using high sheer microfluidizers.  The high sheer process enables us to produce very small, uniform dispersion particles.  Because these particles are so very small and carry a charge, they stay suspended in water through Brownian Motion.  Our dispersions will stay suspended in your final product indefinitely, without any need for weighting agents.
