| Introduction |
Fragrance micro-encapsulation is a new and promising technology. The microcapsules can be used in the paper industry, as well as detergents, textiles etc. The aim is to have a product releasing nicely the fragrance throughout its lifetime. Many parameters have to be taken into consideration to obtain the desired size of the capsule, shape, resistance...
| Description |
- The Formax Home Care is set up with 24 formulation vessels/ blender
- Parameters are adjusted with an integrated DoE software
- Compounds are added while controlling the stirring speed, scraping speed, temperature and pH independently on each formulation vessel/ blender
- The robotic platform prepares 24 different micro-encapsulations
- Gravimetric overhead dispensing allows to dispense compounds while heating, cooling, stirring, scraping, refluxing
- Data for each formulation is stored in a logfile
- Results are perfectly reproducible. For 4 given stirring speeds, the particle size are 6 µm, 16 µm, 19 µm and 75 µm
- 24 complete experiments per run with high level of information
