Powder form, ready-to-use gastrosoluble film-coating agents

The SEPIFILM™ PW is a range of HPMC-based ready-to-use film-coating agents that gives an elegant finish to tablets.

High throughput ready-to-use coating

The product formulations in the SEPIFILM™ PW range are optimized for aesthetic film-coating. They are designed for dispersion in water but are also compatible with organic media.

The SEPIFILM™ PW products are available in powder form and in white, colorless and colored  titanium free options.

Each color is created from a single pigment in order to facilitate the submission of a marketing authorisation dossier. The colour can be lightened by adding SEPIFILM™ PW White or SEPIFILM™ White TF

Our recently launched Sepifilm™ PW TF (titanium free)  colored product range  helps global pharma customers access the new TiO2 free requirements. The range of Sepifilm™  PW TF colors is aimed to bring multiple benefits and opportunities to the formulators in addition to the TF advantage. Also the range provides an option to have functional properties like moisture protection when combined with SEPIFILM™ LP.
