Encapsulation technologies for different industries

The encapsulation process

From common raw materials, Follmann makes a functional premium product. Encapsulation is high technology, following a simple plan, implemented with the highest level of experience and chemical know-how.

Encapsulation is a process that offers a wide variety of technological added values. Traditionally, liquid substances are encapsulated to form a solid processing product, which can then be safely transported and used in a resource-saving manner. Capsules are therefore improving the everyday life of industries and consumers.

THE RELEASE MECHANISMS

Depending on the application, capsules will reveal their contents all at once as soon as their shell is mechanically opened; constantly over a defined period of time in which the active ingredient slowly diffuses; or precisely at certain temperatures. Even permanent encapsulation is possible.

Permanence, stability or precisely defined release mechanisms: Follmann develops tailor-made solutions for you. With encapsulation, we optimize your products down to the smallest detail.

Friction: Release by mechanical pressure or shear
