GELATIN – A FUNCTIONAL PROTEIN ALSO FOR TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS
Gelatin is one of the most versatile food ingredients in the world. But that’s not all. It can also be used in innovative industrial applications. With its unique structure and physicochemical properties, this functional protein is a key component in some technical solutions.
As examples: GELITA provides gelatin for photographic film and papers for over 130 years. Gelatin can be used to make adhesives for matchsticks or as a coating for delayed-release fertilizers.
By forming a hydrophilic protective layer, GELITA’s functional proteins serve as environmentally friendly components for cleaners, textile protection and metalworking fluids.
What’s more, GELITA gelatin can be used to solve some quite unusual problems: restoring old books, artwork, musical instruments or even buildings. It also can be used in ballistic tests or paintball games.
GELITA experts are available to discuss the benefit of our functional proteins in any application. They may be just, what you are looking for.
