Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the production of multi-layered capsules containing two

different active substances and the possibilities of using the obtained capsules in the textile sector,

thereby balancing the body temperature with the phase changing material to be used, and to provide a

second feature in addition to balancing the body temperature with the other active substance. In this

study, a phase change material as the first core material was microencapsulated with melamine

formaldehyde prepolymer, then the resulting microcapsules were subjected to a second

microencapsulation process to form the mandarin oil as a second core material and ethyl cellulose as

a second capsule wall. Single layer microcapsules were produced according to the in-situ

polymerization method, and multilayer microcapsules were produced according to the coaservation

method. Particle size and distribution analysis, DSC, FT-IR and SEM were performed to single layer

and multilayer microcapsules. Also, imaging with a thermal camera were applied to detect the capsule

effectiveness of microencapsulated fabrics.
