Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0786641A1] A paintball projectile capable of marking a target comprises a soft elastic gelatin capsule shell encapsulating a liquid fill, and comprises a silicone oil content in at least one of the capsule shell and the liquid fill. Advantage: reduction of embrittlement of capsule wall. Furthermore, there is provided a method of manufacturing a projectile of this type which comprises mixing a silicone oil with at least one of the capsule shell or the liquid fill during manufacture, and further facilitating diffusion of the silicone oil across the capsule shell/fill boundary resulting in a silicone oil content retained in both the capsule shell and the fill.
