OUR KNOW-HOW


OUR TECHNOLOGY ALONG WITH OUR EXPERTISE


Proneem is the specialist of micro-encapsulation technology. Its first technology : PRONEEM, based on the encapsulation of natural neem oil is patented. This patent has permitted to beget numerous innovative and high-performance range of technologies.



1. WHAT IS MICROENCAPSULATION?

It is a process that enables isolation of 100% natural actives (oils) thanks to a nanometric membrane in order to protect them from external aggressions : light, oxidation, humidity ..., and considerably to extend the useful life of these actives. The result is billion of micro-capsules or bubbles containing a natural oil.


2. HOW IS IT APPLIED ON TEXTILE?

At the end of the production, the micro-capsules containing actives are in liquid form. This liquid is applied on textile during the finishing process when the fabric is treated in order to give it various characteristics : color, pattern… or features regarding Proneem technologies. Once micro-capsules are applied on the fabric, there are several millions on the same weave.

3. HOW ARE ACTIVES LIBERATED?

When the fabric endures a friction or rubbing, some micro-capsules are going to break and release the actives they contain. Then, these actives are going to give textile the chosen feature : anti-dust mite, refreshing, olfactory...Microcapsules and the actives they contain stay within the weave of the textile until they endure a friction thanks to the innovative process of microencapsulation. The release of active is progressive and consistent.

Thanks to its unique know-how, Proneem gives to textile:


AN IN-HOUSE LABORATORY AND A TEAM OF EXPERTS IN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


Research and Development is an essential point at Proneem.


INNOVATIONS CONTROL

Each sustainable innovation developed in Proneem’s laboratory is guaranteed by certificates given by certifying bodies and tests executed by institutes or independent laboratories. These various tests, carried out scientifically and respecting the norms, aim to guarantee technology’s efficacy and safety for the consumer assessing innocuousness for the health and environment.

Know-how, quality and control are the key words in Proneem innovations.


OUR WORK ON TRACEABILITY


Traceability is essential to the quality of products and that’s why Proneem has implemented tailored tools to guarantee the traceability of its technologies. Proneem controls the entire production and distribution chain thanks to these tools. The process of traceability enables to gather essential data in order to identify the origin of each of our raw materials and which customers have received and are selling our products at any moment.

Each product treated with Proneem technologies and sold on the market must have a traceability tag showing essential data:



1. 1. Information about the actives present in the technology, and approved by the biocidal regulation 528/2012.




2. A traceability number that enables to follow products flow : information on the client, the origin of components, places/countries of production and storage, mode of transportation and manufacture date, places and conditions of storage (temperature, pressure, humidity …)

Product effectiveness and safety, rigorous procedures and compliance with the regulatory constraints are all Proneem priorities.


PRONEEM COMMITMENTS


Since its foundation, Proneem has relied on key principles.

SCIENTIFIC EXPERTISE

Proneem possesses all the necessary scientific expertise for the development of high-performance, quality and innovative textile technologies thanks to its in-house laboratory and team. Proneem is committed to the total traceability of its technologies and observes the standards in force in the textiles, chemicals and cosmetics fields.
Beyond the development, Proneem expertise also stands when it comes to quality controls which are strictly selected and carried out to guarantee efficacy and safety of the technologies. Finally, Proneem has achieved to answer specifications of some key labels and international certifications in the textiles field, which are guarantors of quality and safety (NOP/OEKO-TEX).
