Film coating agents
for tablet medications

Film coating agents

Tablets are among the most commonly used forms for oral administration. Film coating is the final step in tablet manufacturing. It is used to:

  • Protect cores from external aggression with a physical barrier
  • Protect hygroscopic cores from humidity
  • Modulate the release of the active ingredient
  • Color tablets to facilitate identification
  • Improve therapeutic adherence by facilitating drug intake (swallowing) and by masking the intrinsic active ingredient characteristics (taste, color, odor...)

We offer multiple ranges of ready-to-use, immediate release, and functional film coating agents. Read on to find out more about the characteristics of our film-coating agents!
