Published: 15 Sep 2017

Technology of coating substances with another material at various sizes to form nanocapsules or microcapsules is called encapsulation. Encapsulation increases the stability and shelf life of the product being encapsulated, helps the manipulation of the product, and enables controlling delivery of products at a particular site and time. The ingredient inside the capsule is called the core, and the outer wall is called the shell. The diameters of the capsules may vary from a few micrometers to a few millimeters. This technology finds applications in various sectors such as healthcare, construction, personal care, paints, oil and gas, and food and beverages. The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Hard gelatin capsules, encapsulation, active ingredients, microspheres
