SEPPIC launches a new colored film coating: SEPIFILM NATurally COLored

At the 2013 VITAFOODS fair scheduled May 14th to May 16th at Palexpo in Geneva (Switzerland), SEPPIC will reveal its new colored film coating SEPIFILM NATurally COLored, latest addition to its SEPIFILMTM range, whose color is sourced from coloring foodstuffs.

SEPPIC’s innovation (patent pending) lies in successfully obtaining bright and remarkably stable colors, while using coloring foodstuffs as sole color source. These coloring foodstuffs may be declared as ingredients on labels.

SEPIFILM NATurally COLored is therefore designed to specifically answer the growing demand for naturalness in Nutrition. It can be applied on nutritional tablets.

In addition, SEPIFILM NATurally COLored rises to the challenge of colored film coating in Nutrition in the EU, by offering brilliant and stable colors while being free of any E colors, aluminium and GMO. SEPIFILM NATurally COLored is exempt from azo dyes and TiO2.

Moreover, this film coating is as easy to use as other SEPIFILM products. It is an instant release film coating, in granule form.

SEPIFILM NATurally COLored offers a range of five colors: SEPIFILM NAT BLUE, SEPIFILM NAT RED, SEPIFILM NAT YELLOW, SEPIFILM NAT GREEN, and SEPIFILM NAT PINK.

Giuseppe Pigorini, Nutrition Division Manager at SEPPIC says:
“Sepifilm NATurally COLored is the ideal choice for our customers who are confronted with the new stringent EU Food regulations on a daily basis. Our novel film coating guarantees conformity to EU Food regulations at all levels of use thanks to its formulation, free from aluminium lakes. Even more impressive, such exceptional features are achieved with a film coating that retains brightness and color stability while sourcing its color from coloring foodstuffs.”

SEPPIC: 35 years of film coating

SEPPIC is an expert in the field of film-wrapping and coating for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications, and was the first manufacturer in the world to offer a coating solution that both protected against humidity and allowed immediate release, namely the SEPIFILM LP range.

In 2012, SEPPIC launched SEPICOAT, a powder-based ready-to-use film coating designed for pharmaceutical and Nutrition applications. Because of the high concentration of dry material (up to 25%), it can reduce coating time by 25% at the production stage.

Used at the end of the manufacturing process of a tablet, a sweet, or a powder, product coating is a fundamental operation. It consists of covering the product with one or more coatings, thereby adding functionality to its surface.

The SEPPIC coating solutions (SEPIFILM, SEPISPERSE and SEPICOAT) are ready-to-use granular or powder products. They have always responded to the needs of customers, and in particular regarding ease of use, safety and ease of cleaning.

SEPPIC also develops tailor-made solutions for its clients, and offers a complete service, from product development to industrial production.
