Gels & Gelling agents
Gelled products are common in many industries (agrifood, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, but also specialty industrial sectors such as lubricants and greases).
Gelling agents, such as xanthan, alginate, guar, pectin, carob, are sometimes also used as simple thickeners or viscosifiers.
Control the sensitivity of gels
The texture or stability of the finished product, the variability of gelling agent batches or the influence of process parameters on gelation or rheology of the product are important industrial issues, for which current methods have serious limitations.
Indeed, it is crucial to control both the formulation of the finished product, the manufacturing process and theapplication to identify and determine the factors altering the gelation mechanism.
RHEONIS puts its experience of gelling agents (xanthan, alginate, pectin, guar, etc.), its innovative rheometer methods and pragmatic study approaches at your service to help you meet your challenges, from R&D to application.
