Abstract

 

Coating, or layering, is the process of applying a secondary layer of solid to a solid host substrate, for instance a core or carrier particle. The process is applied in many industries, like food and feed, pharmaceuticals, fuels or fertilisers, to design the functionality of the coated material. This report gives an overview of process technologies and their capabilities for the coating of core particles smaller than 200 µm in characteristic size.
