Encapsulation technologies for different industries
The encapsulation process
From common raw materials, Follmann makes a functional premium product. Microencapsulation is high technology, following a simple plan, implemented with the highest level of experience and chemical know-how.
Microencapsulation 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. Microcapsules are therefore improving the everyday life of industries and consumers.
Oil and water are in a separated state
By stirring, oil is emulsified in water
Selected wall materials are added to the emulsion
Crosslinking of the wall materials on the surface of the oil droplets
THE RELEASE MECHANISMS
Depending on the application, microcapsules 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 microencapsulation, we optimize your products down to the smallest detail.
Release by mechanical pressure or shear
Release from a defined temperature
Release over a defined period of time
