HLD Webapp to formulate digitally

PrediMulsion is a HLD-based webapp that enables sustainable, collaborative digitalization of formulation R&D, with users all over the world and a unique license approach.


Start exploring with the power of PrediMulsion

PrediMulsion packages HLD (Hydrophilic-Lipophilic Difference) parameters of commercial ingredients and formulation knowledge into a digital tool. It is used for surfactant selection and blending to achieve maximum performance, depending on composition and conditions.

By using automation to obtain HLD parameters and test the emulsions properties, VLCI offers an unprecedented wide view of the formulation space. PrediMulsion is used to develop emulsions, microemulsions and surfactant blends in every field; personal/home care, coating resins, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, etc.

Experts on Predictive formulation science

VLCI has been a spearhead for HLD in the industry since 2011, taking lessons and models from Academia and deploying them in the market. We offer ingredient HLD characterizations, training sessions, applied formulation support and HTE for sample preparation and testing.

Oils and surfactants are characterized via emulsification scans with known ingredients and evaluated according to their Winsor type (W/O, O/W, microemulsion). The phase change is defined as HLD = 0 (Microemulsion), which allows to determine the HLD characteristic parameters of each ingredient.

The HLD equation can then be used to model the SOW system and predict the properties of any emulsion.
